Error Handling

These are the error codes you might get when using the Vault API, how to interpret them, and what to do when you get them. If you need more help with an error, review the support resources.

Error code Description Action
400: Bad Request This error code is returned when there is an error in the input request. Check the request, make required changes to the request, and try again.
401: Invalid Credentials The access token is invalid or expired. Refresh the access token and try again.
404 The specified resource was not found. This error code is returned when the request has a matter, hold, or account that doesn't exist.
409 The specified resource already exists. Try to get the resource again, and, if needed, perform an update.
429 The request exceeds a Vault API quota. Review the Vault API usage limits and use an exponential backoff algorithm as described on that page.
500 An unexpected error happened while processing the request. Retry with exponential backoff.
