Determine if an account is locked via RSA SecurID Authentication API

I am currently building a java application that leverages the RSA SecurID Authentication API provided by the RSA Authentication Manager, version 8.4. (link to yaml:


As a result of the lockout policy, a user can have their account locked out if they attempt to login with the incorrect credentials more than x number of times, where x is a number specified by the super admin of the authentication manager.


In order to provide a better user experience, I would like to be able to tell if the user's account is locked or not. Currently, when I call the RSA SecurID Authentication API  with a locked out, I get a misleading response that states that the credentials are invalid, even though this is not the case.


My question is: Is there a way to programmatically tell, using the REST API, if the user's account is locked?
