Datastore Problem - "502: API Services rejected request with error. HTTP 500"

(Apologies if this is in the wrong section, I do not have access to Engine Bugs)

I have been developing my game for around 4-5 months now and during that development time this error has never occurred before, but now for the past week I have been getting the same error (on and off - I cannot track it properly) , I am 99% sure this isn’t an error from my datastore scripts.

The warning is called randomly either during the game or when I leave the game. I have no clue on what is causing it and if it will effect players data saving in the future (additionally there are transitions in the game, so players may also lose on that aswell)

I am owner of my game and have the api settings on. I cannot reproduce as I do not even know what is causing this.


Thanks for reading.

HTTP 500 means it’s an error on Roblox’s side. There’s probably an issue right now

alright thanks, do you know if this will have an effect on data saving?

This would stop the data from being saved.

This is why you implement a failsafe. Web requests/HTTP calls should never not be protected.

You can implement retries, or error logging.
