Error codes with ErrorDetail information

When an EMR cluster terminates with an error, the DescribeCluster and ListClusters APIs return an error code and an error message. For some cluster errors, the ErrorDetail data array can help you troubleshoot the failure.

Errors that include an ErrorDetail array provide the following details:


A unique error code that you can use for programmatic access.


A list of identifiers in key-value pairs that you can use for programming or manual lookup. For descriptions of the ErrorData values that an error code includes, see the troubleshooting page for the error code.


Description of the error with a link to more information in the Amazon EMR documentation.


We don’t recommend that you parse the text from ErrorMessage because this text is subject to change.
