Troubleshooting

Request body doesn’t fulfill schema, see details in fields

New Registration/Transfer

If you see this error for a new domain registration or transfer, the client’s profile data is missing required data. Review the Profile and Contacts tabs of the client’s profile to ensure that the fields in the error message (first name, last name, email address, address, city, state, country, phone number) are complete.

Managing Existing Domain

If you see this message for an existing domain, the domain registration is through GoDaddy’s retail system. The WHMCS module can only manage domains that you registered through the GoDaddy API Reseller platform.
