- Error Types
Anything that happens during a run of DOTS Email Validation 3 that causes it to be unable to finish its normal processing is an error. If an error occurs, something similar to the following will result instead of the normal/typical output:
<Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.
There are four error types described below.
|Type||TypeCode||Billable||standard Across All Gen2 Web Services|
|Service Objects Fatal||3||No||Yes|
Error type 1: Authorization
- Theses 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 an email address in the EmailAddress field.|
|2||You must input a license key in the LicenseKey field.|
|3||You must enter True or False in the AllowCorrections field.|
|4||Invalid value for AllowCorrections. Please enter True or False.|
|5||You must input a time out value in the timeout field.|
|6||Invalid timeout value. Please enter a timeout value of 200 miliseconds or more.|
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 Email Validation 3 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.
|1||Operation Not Supported.|
