You will see details of various error responses within the API specifications. The Error description field in a response is meant to detail a message for the user. Refer to the error code information which details what the error code means and how this error code should be handled.
 

What is an Account Plan? 

An Account Plan is a collection of one or more APIs. Every developer organization has an Account Plan. When a developer registers for a new organization account, the organization is automatically assigned to ‘Bronze Account Plan’. Using ‘Bronze Account Plan’ you can only consume ‘Test’ APIs. In order to consume ‘Production’ APIs, you have to upgrade your account plan to ‘Production Account Plan’.
 

What is an API Plan ? 

An API Plan is a predefined set of rules and quotes of how to consume an API. Currently, we provide ‘Sandbox’ and ‘Production’ API plans. ’Test’ APIs are only available via ‘Sandbox API Plan’ and they are restricted to some quotes which means you will have limited access. On the other hand ‘Production’ APIs available via ‘Production API Plan’ can be consumed with higher quotes and they process live data. As mentioned under the title ‘What is an API Plan?’ you have to upgrade your account plan to ‘Production Account Plan’ in order to consume ‘Production’ APIs.


Is there a limit to the number of call APIs?

Yes, sandbox APIs are currently restricted to a limited number of calls, according to API Plan’s context.
