In Section 11.5.4. Pose Actions, the function description for xrGetActionStatePose does not explain what the runtime does when the application passes an invalid subactionPath parameter, or a valid subactionPath that was not part of the subactionPaths the action was created with. It only states:

See XrActionCreateInfo for a description of subaction paths, and the restrictions on their use.

There is no mention of subactionPath in the Valid Usage (Implicit) section. In the XrActionCreateInfo description it is stated that:

If subactionPaths is specified and any of the following conditions are not satisfied, the runtime must return XR_ERROR_PATH_INVALID:

  • Each path provided is one of:
    • /user/head
    • /user/hand/left
    • /user/hand/right
    • /user/gamepad
    • /user

This implies that only those five well-known paths are valid to be used as subactionPath parameter, but the Return Codes section for xrGetActionStatePosedoes not include the XR_ERROR_PATH_INVALID return value in case of a path that is not in this list, and it is not explained what will be returned if the path is in this list but was not given when creating the action.

Thanks for your report! This is resolved in 1.0.0: This is an instance of XR_ERROR_PATH_UNSUPPORTED (as in, the path may be a valid XrPath value that corresponds to something, it's just not a something that can be accepted there), which is explained in
