SDK error message response unexpected

This is more of a feedback than a problem report.


I've been working on a Web app that sends SMS using your PHP SDK. However, I noticed that the way an error comes back to me is a bit unexpected.


When I forget to include SMS text, I would expect either 1) the SMS to be sent with empty body or 2) the error be included in the '$response' response per your suggested code here: https://github.com/ringcentral/ringcentral-php


But instead, I get a "Fata Error" response that overwrites my calling PHP, like this:


"Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Response has unsuccessful status' in /home/mozartdl57/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/http/Request.php:171 Stack trace: #0 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/platform/Platform.php(221): RC\http\Request->send() #1 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/platform/Platform.php(264): RC\platform\Platform->apiCall(Object(RC\http\Request)) #2 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/oncall_response.php(70): RC\platform\Platform->post('/account/~/exte...', NULL, Array) #3 {main} Next exception 'RC\http\HttpException' with message 'Parameter [text] value is invalid' in /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/http/Request.php:178 Stack trace: #0 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/platform/Platform.php(221): RC\http\Request->send() #1 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/platform/Platform.php(264): RC\platform\Platform->apiCall(Object(RC\http\Request)) #2 /home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/oncall_response.php(70): RC\platform\Platform->post('/account/~/exte...', NULL, Array) #3 {main} thrown in/home/mozartdl67/acmemedical.org/lib/RC/http/Request.php on line 178"

This is really hard to decipher and it took me a while to notice the "Parameter [text] value is invalid" buried in the above.


Just a feedback; otherwise your APIs and SDKs worked great.

In upcoming version 0.6.0 error message in HttpException contains parsed message from API.

In previous versions API error may be viewed by accessing getResponse() function of HttpException.
