Error codes

Last updated June 26th, 2024

The Knox MSP Portal API uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of a request. A 2XX response code indicates success, a 4XX response code indicates a client-side error due to the request inputs, and a 5XX response code indicates a server-side error. There are also custom error codes specific to the Knox MSP Portal API listed below.

Error object

Each error response contains a JSON body with additional information about the error. The error objects contain the following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
transactionalId String A string used to identify the exact transaction that returned the error object.
code String The name of the error code.
errorCode String The error code number. If it’s unique to the Knox MSP Portal, it’s a more specific indicator of the error than the HTTP response code.
errorMessage String A description of the error, intended to help developers debug the error response.

Following is an example 403 response:

HTTP/1.1 403 Unauthorized

Content-Type: application/json

    "transactionalId": "6m789un9-982d-12u6-7899-n9wre821m26m",
    "errorCode": "4030000",
    "errorMessage": "The current user is unauthorized to use this service."

Standard HTTP error codes

The following table lists the most common HTTP error responses:

Code Name Description
200 Success The request was successfully received.
400 Bad Request The client has issued an invalid request. Verify your request (for instance, check validation errors in your request payload).
401 Unauthorized Authorization for the API is required, but the request has not been authenticated.
403 Forbidden The request has been authenticated but does not have the appropriate permissions, or the requested resource cannot be found.
404 Not Found The requested path or the specified user does not exist.
409 Conflict The request could not be completed due to a conflict with the current state of the target resource.
500 Server Error An error has occurred on the server. Please try again later.
