Error Handling

PowerAuth Push Server uses following format for error response body, accompanied with an appropriate HTTP status code. Besides the HTTP error codes that application server may return regardless of server application (such as 404 when resource is not found or 503 when server is down), following status codes may be returned:

status HTTP code Description
OK 200 No issue
ERROR 400 Issue with a request format, or issue of the business logic
ERROR 401 Unauthorized, invalid security token configuration

All error responses that are produced by the PowerAuth Push Server have following body:


{
    "status": "ERROR",
    "responseObject": {
        "code": "ERROR_GENERIC",
        "message": "Campaign with entered ID does not exist"
    }
}
  • status - OK ERROR
  • code - ERROR_GENERIC ERROR_DATABASE
  • message - Message that describes certain error.

Service

Describes basic information of application.

Service Status

Send a system status response, with basic information about the running application.

Device

Represents mobile device with iOS or Android that is capable to receive a push notification. Device has to first register with APNS or FCM to obtain push token. Then it has to forward the push token to the push server end-point. After that push server is able to send push notification to the device.

Create Device

Create a new device push token (platform specific). The call must include activationId, so that the token is associated with given user in the PowerAuth Server.

Note: Since this endpoint is usually called by the back-end service, it is not secured in any way. It’s the service that calls this endpoint responsibility to assure that the device is somehow authenticated before the push token is assigned with given activation ID, so that there are no incorrect bindings.

Method POST
Resource URI /push/device/create

Request

{
    "requestObject": {
        "appId": 2,
        "token": "1234567890987654321234567890",
        "platform": "ios",
        "activationId": "49414e31-f3df-4cea-87e6-f214ca3b8412"
    }
}
  • appId - Application that device is using.
  • token - Identifier for device.
  • platform - “ios android
  • activationId - Activation identifier

Response

{
    "status": "OK"
}

Create Device for Multiple Associated Activations

Create a new device push token (platform specific). The call must include activationIds which contains list of activations to be associated with the registered device.

Note: Since this endpoint is usually called by the back-end service, it is not secured in any way. It’s the service that calls this endpoint responsibility to assure that the device is somehow authenticated before the push token is assigned with given activation IDs, so that there are no incorrect bindings.

Method POST
Resource URI /push/device/create/multi

Request

  • appId - Application that device is using.
  • token - Identifier for device.

Response
