Ivy's API also utilizes standard HTTP response codes to provide information about the success or failure of API requests.

2xx Range (Success): Codes in this range indicate a successful API request. It means that the requested operation was completed as expected.

4xx Range (Client Errors): Codes in this range indicate an error related to the client's request. For instance, it could be due to a missing required parameter, a payment failure, or other client-specific issues.

5xx Range (Server Errors): These indicate an issue with Ivy's servers. When you encounter a code in this range, it signifies an error on Ivy's side, and you should not be concerned about the client's request.

Understanding these response codes helps developers work with Ivy's API effectively and handle different scenarios, ensuring a smooth and reliable integration.

HTTP Status Code Summary

403 - AuthorizationThe used API key doesn't have the necessary permissions to perform the request.
404 - Not FoundThe requested resource does not exist.
