Format and Parameters of the Error DocumentLocate this document in the navigation structure


The body of an error document for HTTP logon errors is usually in HTML or XML format. However, some tags have a special meaning.

<NO_TRANSLATION>...</NO_TRANSLATION>: The text between the tags consists of technical code that is not translated.

There are also the following tags with the format <%=...%>. These tags are replaced at runtime. You can use these tags to register an application-specific error text that is displayed when errors occur. The following information can then be added to the general error message to make the problem easier to identify and solve:
