Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to one of these endpoints to retrieve the details of an author:

GET /loudvoice/authors/<author_token>.json
GET /loudvoice/authors/author.json?author_reference=<author_reference>

The <author_token> represents the unique identifier of the author. The <author_reference> is the unique reference that you optionally specified when you created the author.

Result: the code returned by the API

The API will either return a HTTP status code 200 on success or an appropriate message body with further details on the error that occured.
