API Validations

  1. A PCSID should not have been already generated for the Device ID. This API is not idempotent. In case of a duplicate request, this will throw an exception.

  2. A CSR should have been already created for the Device ID in ClearTax.

API Constraints

  1. This API needs to be authenticated with a valid user authentication token. If the auth token is not present or is invalid, the API will return HTTP Status Code 401.

  2. If the auth token is valid, but the user does not have the authorization to generate device ID, then the API will return HTTP Status Code 403. The user, whose auth token is used, should have an Admin role for the particular VAT used in the request.
