Response of the endpoint
The endpoint will return a
JSON response with an HTTP status of 200 or 401 or 403. The response body will contain
payload. If there is an error with the request, then the error key will indicate the type of the error that has occurred, and error_description will provide a short description of the error. Otherwise, the payload will contain information about the user. At the moment, inside the payload key, there will be a
user key that contains Meveto ID of the user. HTTP statuses other than 200 are described below.
HTTP status 401
If the response HTTP status code is 401, then it means that the provided access token is not valid.
HTTP status 403
If the response HTTP status code is 403, then it means that the associated user with the provided access token has declined your application's request to get their Meveto ID.
