    I've included a breakdown of the reason codes that you outlined above but don't imply a 500 response from the backend as the first 4 is that a response is not received.

    Message Routing Context Variables - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation 


    Returns one of the following reason codes when the HTTP routing fails:

    • -1 (Host Not Found): The Server referenced in the URL (for example, cannot be reached. This code can be returned if either the host does not exist or the host is simply down.
    • -2 (Bad URL): The URL is incorrect. This could be caused by an incorrect character such as "#".
    • -3 (Connection timeout): An initial message was sent to the URL but no response was received before the connection timeout expired. The connection timeout value is defined in the assertion properties.
    • -4 (Read timeout): One of packets being received from the URL took longer than the read timeout value to be received. The read timeout value is defined in the assertion properties.
    • -5 (Undefined): An unknown type of error has occurred.
