What to expect when things go wrong

Our API responds to incorrect requests with an appropriate HTTP status code and JSON error message. All non-200 response status codes are considered errors. The error codes used are provided in the table below.

429Too Many RequestsYour request has exceeded the maximum number of requests allowed for the specified time period. Try reducing the rate at which you are sending requests. For more information on our rate limits refer to the Rate Limits section.
500Internal Server ErrorAn unexpected server issue was encountered.


    "error": "The requested URL was not found on the server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again."

The above error message is obtained by making the following request:

curl --location --request POST 'https://api.syve.ai/v1/typo' \
--data-raw ''

The request above will return a 408 because the endpoint typodoes not exist.
