DS.UnauthorizedError Class addon/adapters/errors.js:229


A DS.UnauthorizedError equates to a HTTP 401 Unauthorized response status. It is used by an adapter to signal that a request to the external API was rejected because authorization is required and has failed or has not yet been provided.

An example use case would be to redirect the user to a log in route if a request is unauthorized:

import Ember from 'ember';
import DS from 'ember-data';

const { UnauthorizedError } = DS;

export default Ember.Route.extend({
  actions: {
    error(error, transition) {
      if (error instanceof UnauthorizedError) {
        // go to the sign in route
        this.transitionTo('login');
        return;
      }

      // ...other error handling logic
    }
  }
