Registration - 5.4 Client Read Error Response

Issue #902 resolved

created an issue


When a read error condition occurs, the Client Configuration Endpoint returns a HTTP 401 Unauthorized status code. This indicates that the Access Token is invalid or the Client record requested is invalid or non-existent.

Is it always the case? Do we not have the cases for 403 etc.?

The example is using 403 by the way.

    WG discussed about it and 401 seems to be ok. There does not seem to be any other condition that result in other 40x error. However, the example is using 403 so it needs to be fixed.

    Change 403 example to that of 401.

    The spec has been updated to describe when to return 401 versus 403. We should consider whether to include WWW-Authenticate in the error response example and change the example response to a 401.
