There are different types of tasks exposed via the contracts management API, such as issuances and burnings, which are used to perform primary emissions and removals of securities. For such tasks, a
status field represents the current status of the task, which usually starts out as
"processing", and transitions to either one of the final states
"failed". In the latter case, the
error field will usually also be set, and can provide additional information. Feel free to contact us if it is unclear why a task failed, and the error message is not clear enough on the cause.
