E9.2 Orchestrator always returns Error 500


Hi all
We have been creating REST API's using Orchestrator Form Requests for a while now. One thing that puzzles me is the return codes. AIS always returns 500 even for obvious data errors. Also the error messages are not very clear. This creates a problem for the calling system when receiving the response. Is there a way this can be made to return proper error codes and more meaningful messages? Help will be much appreciated. We are on Tools Release
See the following response for a data error - In this case an Invalid Product Code. It returned a 500 error.
Response from AIS:
InternalServerError, Content:

P.S. Posted in Technical forum and then realised there is one for Orchestrator separately


All data errors are now 500 error codes. They used to return a 200 in the older Orchestrator versions and then include the error message in a return field, but now most errors are 500 unless there is an connection issue where you might get a 401, 403, or 404 etc. I don't believe there is any way to change this, but you can define error handling on any step of your Orchestration and specify your own error messages there.
