Errors

Possible error responses from the scraping API.

Error Responses#

The ScrapingAnt API uses common HTTP status codes: 2xx range for success, 4xx range for errors caused by the caller (invalid requests) and 5xx range for server errors. Each error response contains a JSON object defining the detail property, which is a string that contains a human-readable error description. For example:

{
"detail": "Wrong host part of url. Please check out the documentation https://scrapingant.com/documentation/"
}
