Response and error codes

Picqer uses default HTTP Status Codes for the status of the responses. Successful requests will be answered with a 200 OK response. Successful POST requests will be answered with a 201 Created response.


All requests that result in an error, will be responded with 4xx and 500 codes.

Code Reason
400 Bad Request Data in JSON body is not correctly structured or required arguments are missing
401 Unauthorized Login credentials are incorrect or account has no access to this function
403 Forbidden No access to this object
404 Not Found Object could not be found
429 Too Many Requests Rate limit reached
500 Internal Server Error Picqer is mistaken

Picqer error codes

When Picqer returns an error, in most cases it will provide detailed information about the error in the body of the response. Such a response will look like this:

{ "error": true, "error_code": 8, "error_message": "Not implemented" }

Every error_code is unique and can be used to provide your own error messages to your clients. These are the possible error codes:
