Sample Response

        "type": "success",
        "message": "Success"

Here are a few different errors that will return a 400 Bad Request status code.

{
    "status": {
        "error": true,
        "code": 400,
        "type": "bad request",
        "message": "Content Type is not specified or specified incorrectly. 
                    Content-Type header must be set to application/json"
    }
}

{
    "status": {
        "error": true,
        "code": 400,
        "type": "bad request",
        "message": "Access Token Missing"
    }
}

Typically, the following error means that your Authorization header value is missing or incorrectly formatted. The Authorization header format must be: client_id:<client_id>, client_secret:<client_secret>.

{
    "status": {
        "error": true,
        "code": 400,
        "type": "bad request",
        "message": "The authorization information is missing"
    }
}

Typically, this error means that your client_id and/or client_secret values are invalid.

{
    "status": {
        "error": true,
        "code": 401,
        "type": "Unauthorized",
        "message": "Authentication Failure"
    }
}

Typically, this error means that you are using the incorrect method. If you receive this error, ensure that you are making a POST.

{
    "status": {
        "error": true,
        "code": 404,
        "type": "not found",
        "message": "No Route Exists"
    }
