Invalid credentials for login

When you use invalid credentials, the login API call will fail with the error code 500 and the following message will display: "Authentication Error: Ensure that your username and password are correct." You need to login again with the right credentials.

Invalid or expired token

When a token is invalid or expired, API calls will fail with the error code 401 Unauthorized and the following message will display: "UNAUTHORIZED USER". You need to generated a new token by logging in again and use the newly generated token to make subsequent API calls.

Unrecognized field error

If the format of the JSON input request is incorrect, it results in "Unrecognized field" error. For example,
Unrecognized field  "parentId"  (class com.bluecatnetworks.proteus.api.service.types.APIEntity), not marked as ignorable (4
      known properties:  "type" ,  "id" ,  "properties" ,  "name" ])
