The Authentication API typically returns an HTTP status code of 200 OK regardless of whether or not the API call completes successfully. That means that, in addition to looking at the status code, you must look at the API response to know whether the call really did succeed. If it turns out that the call failed, the API response will look similar to this:

  "stat": "error",
  "code": 100,
  "error_description": "missing arguments: flow",
  "error": "missing_argument",
  "request_id": "uyeem84bmqmnjuu4"

The following table provides a brief description of the properties found in a typical error message:
