What does each Fax Result and Fax State Indicate and have a issue with a response

Hi, We are doing a POC to send the Fax using the REST API. But occasionally we are getting the response status code as 0. And can you give a detailed description of each fax state and fax result? Thanks, Vinyas

Error: "Message": "Authorization has been denied for this request."

I've getting this error when I'am hitting the REST api on postman. I have all the credentials.

Encryption required

When I query a fax destination, I see that the "Required" field is set to true. If this field is set, can I still send a regular (non-encrypted) document to that destination phone number?

Fax Send with invalid number

Scenario: Testing invalid fax number response codes by faxing to the number 5 Expected: 400 status code with message telling me what field is bad and maybe a FaxResult type telling me InvalidOrMissingNumber (or 8) Actual: Receive 500 response with no detail, occasionally a 400 status code is returned but with no detail describing what went wrong. POST https://na.connect.etherfax.net/rest/3.0/api/outbox { "callerId": "1234567890", "dialNumber": "5", "faxImage": BASE_64_FILE_CONTENTS } There is inconsistency between the Http Status Code returned, and would be nice for some details regarding what went wrong.

Is there a way to simulate an incoming fax?

We're switching our app dev from the REST Api directly to the .Net Client. Up to now, we've been sending actual faxes to do unit testing or for development, but we'd like to start doing som more automated testing and load testing. Is there an easy way to simulate receiving faxes, preferably lots of them, without having to actually send a fax?

Fax to Australia number is not working

I have tried to send fax to Australia number 1300368999 but it is not working. Tried in postman also but not working +611300368999 as a dialnumber.

Fax Status and Retry.

Once the fax gets submitted via the API, and the result is not Success, Error or In Progress, the fax transaction is dead at this point? Say the line is busy, is it up to the client to resend a new request to the API? There is no built in Retry scheme, that needs to be built at the client level? Can you confirm this statement?

sending Multiple documents in a single fax.

Is there any way we can send multiple documents in a single fax using etherfax api. I have couple of documents with different byte[] . I want to send all documents in single sendfax call, as it needs to be received by user as a single fax. Is there anyway to do that in the API?
