- Error Types
Generally, an error is anything that happens during a run of DOTS BIN Validation that causes the service to fail. If an error occurs, an XML error message, similar to the one below, will result instead of the BinValidationInfo output described above:
<Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.</Desc>
There are four error types described below.
|Type||Type Code||Billable||Standard Across All Gen2 Web Services|
|Service Objects Fatal||3||No||Yes|
Error type 1: Authorization
These are standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services.
|0||Unknown authorization error.|
|1||Please provide a valid license key for this web service.|
|2||The daily allowable number of transactions for this license key has been exceeded.|
|3||The monthly allowable number of transactions for this license key has been exceeded.|
|4||The total allowable number of transactions for this license key has been exceeded.|
|5||There are not enough transactions available. Check your daily/monthly transaction limits.|
|6||This license key has not yet been activated.|
|7||This license key has expired.|
|8||Your license key does not work on this service.|
Error type 2: User Input
User Input errors are caused when a user inputs an invalid value or fails to provide a certain input field altogether. If a developer creates a request and mistypes a parameter name, it will probably cause a User Input Error.
|1||“You must input a license key in the LicenseKey field.”|
|2||“Improper BIN format. Please input a valid BIN.”|
Error type 3: Service Objects Fatal
The Desc will always be the same and the DescCode has no meaning. This is standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services. This is a rare error that signals either a bug in the DOTS BIN Validation service, or a Network/Connectivity issue.
|1||“Unhandled error. Please contact Service Objects.”|
Error type 4: Domain Specific
Domain specific errors represent the common errors seen in Service Objects services. Domain Specific errors indicate that the service completed successfully but the result is not good.
|1||“BIN not found. Please input a valid BIN.”|
|2||“Bank information is currently unavailable.”|
