Is there a list of API errors?

September 5, 2014 1.9k views

The following JSON is an example of an error received when making a request against v2 of the API:

    'error_description': 'The provided authorization grant...',
    'error': 'invalid_grant'

It would appear that error is a special constant that represents a specific type of error (an invalid authorization code in this case). Is there a list anywhere of all such constants?

For example, what would error be set to if I made a request with an expired access token?

Hi Nathan!

There isn’t a comprehensive list of error OAuth error messages. Though I can tell you that an expired access token would return that same error. Check out the section titled “Common Access Token Request Errors” in the OAuth docs.

APIv2 mostly relies on the standard HTTP status codes to indicate errors with requests.
