Responses
The API returns HTTP responses on each request to indicate the success or otherwise of API requests. The codes listed below are often used, and the API may use others.

Response codes

Successful API responses will have a 2xx HTTP status code.
Success code
Description
200
Ok - The request has succeeded.
201
Created - The request has succeeded and a new resource has been created as a result of it
204
No Content - There is no content to send for this request, but the headers may be useful
Note that 4xx and 5xx responses may be returned for any request and clients should cater for them.

Validation

Methods that take input will validate all parameters. Any parameter that fails validation will trigger an error response with status HTTP 422. The response body will be a JSON object that includes a message as well as a list of fields that failed validation.
{
"Message": "Validation Failed",
"Errors": [
{
"Message": "This is a model-wide error"
},
{
"Field": "Url",
"Message": "'Url' should not be empty."
}
]
}
