Decoding API responses

HTTP status codes help identify failures in the server’s response to your API call. In general, status codes in the 2xx range mean success, the 4xx range means there was an error in the provided information, and those in the 5xx range indicate server-side errors.

Here are a few of the commonly used HTTP status codes that you’ll encounter while using Kissflow APIs:
