Failed Submission

A failed POST submission may be due to several factors:

400 Bad RequestTypically, this error occurs when the request does not follow the specifications.
403 ForbiddenTypically, this error occurs when the credentials are erroneous. Potentially, an incorrect x-omeda-appid.
404 Not FoundTypically, this error occurs with a malformed URL or the resource that is searched for is not found.
405 Method Not AllowedTypically, this error occurs when the resource accessed is not allowed by the HTTP Method utilized. Make sure you employ the correct HTTP Method (POST) for this request.

This is not an exhaustive list of errors, but common ones. If an error occurs repeatedly, please contact your Omeda representative.
