Errors

Errors can happen in response to a specific request, or while subscribed to incoming messages. For example, when attempting to register without a valid captcha token, an error response like this will be sent to the client:

{
  "type": "register",
  "error": {
    "more": "https://signald.org/articles/captcha/",
    "message": "a captcha token is required to register"
  },
  "error_type": "CaptchaRequiredError"
}

The error_type field indicates which type the error field is (CaptchaRequiredError in this case).

clients should have mechanisms to deal with unexpected error types. changes to signald may cause future versions to give different errors.
