The error number and description values sent in the response indicate the status of how a request was handled by the First Data Global Gateway e4℠ web service API. The error number value “0” indicates that no error occurred while handling the request. A non “0” value indicates that an error occurred.
The error values may be passed back through the “detail” element of a Soap Exception or in the response properties Error_Number and Error_Description. The possible error values are defined in the table below.
If a Code Element has a “Client” value, this indicates that the incoming message was incorrectly formed or did not contain the appropriate information in order to succeed. It is a general indication that the message should not be resent without change.
If a Code Element has a “Server” value, this indicates that the incoming message could not be processed for reasons not directly attributable to the contents of the message itself but rather to the processing of the message. The same message may succeed at a later point in time.
