    Added support for 401 Unauthorized response code



    We’re now supporting the 401 Unauthorized response code. When a customer makes a request using any invalid or revoked API Key, we’ll respond with 401 Unauthorized. If you’re specifically targeting HTTP response codes other than 200, you may need to update your code.


    Previously, we responded to requests made with an invalid or revoked API key with a 500 Server Error status code. We updated this to bring our response in line with proper semantics and allow more efficient status monitoring.
