[MarkLogic Dev General] fn:error

510 is not defined in the HTTP spec, but I believe the function xdmp:set-response-code() will let you set the code to whatever you want:

xdmp:set-response-code(510,"Description of what you mean by 510")

Hi, Pragya:

One footnote to Asit's guidance -- if you're extending the REST API, you can throw the RESTAPI-SRVEXERR error to set the HTTP response.

Hi Pragya,

500 response code is coming from MarkLogic predefined error utility file where all response code has been defined as per specific message or standards. You need to change that configuration file manually but its not recommended at all.

You can create your own custom xml file with your custom codes and messages. While throwing the respective error you can return your own customize response.

I am using fn:error as :

if($e//error:code/text() eq "XDMP-LEXVAL") then
    fn:error(xs:QName("ERROR"), "Incorrect Data Entered in Search Query")
else ()

I get a response as :

    <message>Internal Server Error | ERROR - Incorrect Data Entered in Search Query</message>
    <description>Incorrect Data Entered in Search Query (ERROR): in /rest-apis/search/search-document.xqy at line number 616</description>

In my response error code is 500. I need to change the code to some other no say 510.
How can I achieve this?
