Response Codes and What They Mean

The 80legs API uses standard http response codes to provide feedback on the success or failure of your API calls.  Here's a quick rundown of what these response codes typically mean when using the API.

Response CodeWhat It Means
204 It worked!
400 Malformed request. This often means the JSON object is not formatted correctly.
405 Method not allowed. This could mean you're using POST where a PUT should be. Or you're including a key in the JSON object that is incorrect.
422 Something you tried to upload to your account had something wrong with it. A common mistake is uploading something with the same name as something you uploaded before.
500 Something is wrong with our API. You shouldn't see this if we're doing everything correctly.
503 The API is down for maintenance. We're working on making things better!
