Error type 2: User Input
User Input errors are caused when a user inputs an invalid value or fails to provide a certain input field altogether. If a developer creates a request and mistypes a parameter name, it will probably cause a User Input Error.
|1||You must input a license key in the LicenseKey field.|
|2||You must submit at least one input value in addition to your license key.|
Error type 3: Service Objects Fatal
The Desc will always be the same and the DescCode has no meaning. This is standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services. This is a rare error that signals either a bug in the DOTS Address Detective service, or a Network/Connectivity issue.
