Status Codes

The HTTP response codes indicate success or error.

SeaTable uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request. In general:

  • Codes in the 2xx range indicate success.
  • Codes in the 4xx range indicate an error that failed given information provided (e.g., a required parameter was omitted, a charge failed, etc.). Most 4xx errors include an error code that briefly explains the error reported.
  • Codes in the 5xx range indicate an error with SeaTable's servers (these are rare).
