I have an HTTP action that calls REST service. If the REST service returns a response code of 400 (i.e. BadRequest), Automate is not recoginizing that as an error and continues as if it was successful.

Is there a way to get around this? Is it not checking standard HTTP defined response codes?

Hi Joseph,

That is correct.  AutoMate received a response so the step is treated as successful.

A step can be added to check if the response code is 400 and if so, to stop the task.  Pleases see the steps below.
