    the message field is the specific details of the error.

Handling Errors

You should handle any error responses and take the appropriate action. An error occurred if:
    The response return code is not 200
    The JSON response status is error
For example, if Facebook link was removed by your user - they changed their password or removed Ayrshare's access - the following response would occur when posting with a 400 Bad Request response code.
1
{
2
"status": "error",
3
"errors": [
4
{
5
"action": "post",
6
"status": "error",
7
"code": 161,
8
"message": "Facebook authorization error. This can occur if your Facebook security changes. Try unlinking and re-linking Facebook or contact us for assistance.",
9
"platform": "facebook"
10
}
11
],
12
"postIds": [],
13
"id": "gh7SyTpeD2CQAMxWk3oh",
14
"post": "A great Facebook Posts"
15
}
