Dwolla Offline Simulation


(Jacob Ramirez) #1

I am currently implementing a feature on my project in which I need to handle all different Dwolla failure scenarios (think of R codes). But there is one scenario I am not quite sure how to simulate it and I can’t find anything in the API documentation about it.

So I wonder if there is a way that Dwolla somehow ignores my requests so I can interpret that as Dwolla being offline or at least give me back a 503 status code.

@Jacob_Ramirez, are you looking to reproduce error responses from the Dwolla API or transaction failures (R codes)?

It sounds like you’re looking to simulate a specific endpoint returning a 5xx level status code. Is that correct?

That is correct

We do not offer any way to simulate various status codes in the Sandbox environment, therefore I’d recommend mocking out any 500 response from the Dwolla API.
