Errors by Number
This table lists all error and warning messages that could be encountered using the eBay ClientAlerts API. A tip: Most HTML browsers support text search of the displayed document, typically initiated with Ctrl-F. Use this to search for an ID or for text of an error or warning message returned by a call.
All error messages are provided in English only. You can use the ID as an index into your own structure for supplying messages in whatever language or format you wish, but base your message translations on the error strings in this table.
You see "replaceable_value" in several messages in this table. It is simply a placeholder. At run-time, an actual value is returned, a value whose meaning depends on the context of the error message.
Errors are divided into two types, System Error and Request Error. This error type is indicated in error result sets by the value returned in the ErrorClass return field. The error type indicates what sort of action the application, the developer, or the end-user needs to take in response to the error.
Error 1.11 ("Internal error to the application") reflects an error on the eBay server side, not an error in your application.
The version number in the heading (which indicates which eBay ClientAlerts API version that was in effect when this table was last generated) may be higher than the version of the WSDL you are using. This is because the list of possible errors can change periodically even though the WSDL may not change (due to changes in validation rules on the eBay site).
