- Error Types
Anything that happens during a run of DOTS Lead Validation that causes it to be unable to finish its normal processing is an error. If an error occurs, something like the following will be the result instead of the normal output:
<Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.</Desc>
There are four error types described below. For DOTS Lead Validation, the first two will be the most common.
|Standard for all Gen2
Error type 1: Authorization
- These are standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services.
|Unknown authorization error.
|Please provide a valid license key for this web service.
|The daily allowable number of transactions for this license key has
|The monthly allowable number of transactions for this license key has
|The total allowable number of transactions for this license key has
|There are not enough transactions available. Check your daily/monthly
|This license key has not yet been activated.
|This license key has expired.
|Your license key does not work on this service.
Error type 2: User Input
- These errors occur as a result of bad input. DOTS Lead Validation allows for all input fields to be optional, so the only time this error will show up is with a bad or omitted TestType or Country input.
|TestType is required to run Service.
|That does not appear to be a valid TestType.
|The Country input is missing.
|The Country is not currently supported.
Error type 3: Service Objects Fatal
- This is a rare error that signals either a bug in the DOTS Lead Validation service, or a Network/Connectivity issue.
|Unhandled error. Please contact Service Objects.
Error type 4: Domain Specific
- Domain specific errors represent the normal errors seen in Service Objects services. For example, if the user is looking for an address in DOTS Address Validation and the address does not exist, a valid domain specific error is “Address not found.” There are currently no domain specific errors for Lead Validation. This is because, in DOTS Lead Validation, every normal error is not an error but a valid test result that will result in a positive or negative point swing. All possible outcomes from other services are accounted for.
