Submission status

The status code of the submission defines the outcome of its execution. The codes that Sphere Engine uses for labeling submissions are unified all over the module components. This consistent convention is used for API submissions, widgets JavaScript SDK events, webhook messages, partial results, etc.

Note: Values of the status codes are unified also across Sphere Engine modules. In this case, the meaning of some values can have slightly different meanings (e.g., "success" vs "correct", "compilation error" vs "build error"). Some values may also not being present. These minor differences are always in line with differences between modules.

The following two tables present available values of the status code.
