The VisaNet Connect APIs use conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request. The HTTP status code 200 is returned for a successful API call. Other HTTP status codes, such as 400 and 500, are returned for unsuccessful calls.
To determine the status of any API call, use the combination of the HTTP status code returned in the response, error code from the Visa platform and other information included in the response message in order to apply the correct processing logic and communicate with customers.
The following table provides additional guidance on how to interpret and act upon status responses.
|HTTP Status Code||Error Code||Error Description|
|200||None||API request processed successfully. A combination of the actionCd and tranReslt attributes returned in the response indicate the outcome of the transaction (e.g. 00 Approved, 10 Partially Approved, etc.).|
|400||Various||The message had validation errors due to invalid field lengths, data type, or missing fields.|
|401||None||The API request is returned if user's credentials are invalid.
|402||Various||API request failed due to a processing error or issuer declined the payment transaction. For Capture and Void requests, tranReslt may contain a NotProcessed status.|
|403||None||The URL access is not permitted. Contact your Visa production support contact for assistance.|
|404||None||The URL is invalid or the Resource could not be found.|
|500||None||An internal server error occured. Contact your Visa production support contact for assistance.|
