On success the HTTP status code in the response header is 200 OK.

On error, the header status code is an error code and the response body contains an error object. Trying to change a playlist when you do not have the user’s authorization returns error 403 Forbidden.


Note that cURL requires quotation marks within the JSON data to be escaped, for example. \"name\":\"A name\".
