vapi std errors: unauthenticated
unauthenticatederror indicates that the operation requires authentication and the user is not authenticated.
API requests may include a security context containing user credentials. For example, the user credentials could be a SAML token, a user name and password, or the session identifier for a previously established session.
- The SAML token in the request's security context has expired.
- The user name and password in the request's security context are invalid.
- The session identifier in the request's security context identifies a session that has expired.
- The user is authenticated but isn't authorized to perform the requested operation. The vapi.std.errors.unauthorized error would be used instead.
For security reasons, the vapi.std.errors.error.data field in this error is unset, and the vapi.std.errors.error.messages field in this error does not disclose which part of the security context is correct or incorrect. For example the messages would not disclose whether a username or a password is valid or invalid, but only that a combination of username and password is invalid.

|messages||localizable_message||Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers.
The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked. Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.
|data||object||Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully.
Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports. The vapi.std.errors.argument_locations, vapi.std.errors.file_locations, and vapi.std.errors.transient_indication structures are intended as possible values for this field. vapi.std.dynamic_ID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.Optional. Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.
