Error Codes and Responses

Updated 9 months ago ​by Jake Peters

The HelpDocs API sends back standard error codes when things go wrong.

CodeDescription
200OK
400Missing required parameters for API call
401Account or user not authorized for this route
404The data or route you requested doesn't exist
500Something went wrong on our end, and we're trying to fix it
Errors sent from the API often come with a message that describes them in more detail

If you come across an error code that's not mentioned, or you're getting a code you don't expect, get in touch and our developers will take a look.


How did we do?
