401 Unauthorized. For example, you would get this response if you didn't include the custom X-Csrf-Token_{fedmemberID} header in the request, when it was required by the platform settings; or if you included an invalid or expired value for this header. You would also get this response for any operation that requires login (almost all) if the login cookie was missing.

The resource could not be found. For example, you might get this if you have a typo in the URL, or if the Accept header is set to a wrong value.
