HTTP Status Code: 500


Indicates that the provided ARN value is not valid.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Indicates that an attempt to make an attachment was invalid. For example, attaching two nodes with a link type that is not applicable to the nodes or attempting to apply a schema to a directory a second time.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Indicates that limits are exceeded. See Limits for more information.

HTTP Status Code: 400


The specified resource could not be found.

HTTP Status Code: 404


Occurs when a conflict with a previous successful write is detected. For example, if a write operation occurs on an object and then an attempt is made to read the object using “SERIALIZABLE” consistency, this exception may result. This generally occurs when the previous write did not have time to propagate to the host serving the current request. A retry (with appropriate backoff logic) is the recommended response to this exception.

HTTP Status Code: 409


Indicates that a schema could not be created due to a naming conflict. Please select a different name and then try again.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Indicates that your request is malformed in some manner. See the exception message.
