Any problems with the API at present?

Hi there

I’m writing a client using the new API, and I’m getting problems with
the live API calls. This is code which worked a few days ago.

I’m hitting a normal URL:

https://api.freeagent.com/v2/approve_app?response_type=code&client_id=p5zxxxxxxxxxxxA&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fastchicken.co.nz%2Foauth%2F&state=foo

I authenticate, and get this back

http://www.fastchicken.co.nz/oauth/?code=1TkFRYmEPxxxxxxxxuGiHRWQpkpe&state=foo

I then hit the “get an access token” (and then refresh it, as this is
my test app…) and I get a token back:

1PicTrtTWxxxxxxxx21LYe / 1IBLH8T-vlixxxxx2A7rd6Th4loT / bearer / 604800

I then call /v2/company, and I get a 500 error back from the server.

Any ideas why /v2/company is returning a 500 error now?

Ta

Nic

Thanks Graeme, that works now. For some reason, I was resetting the
handlers at my end, and it wasn’t adding in the accept types.

Whats strange, this was working last week. Just stopped around
saturday. Did you guys change something at your end around Friday-ish?On Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 11:25, Graeme Boyd graeme.boyd@freeagent.com wrote:

Hi Nic,

Can you please set the Accept header? So if you want JSON from the API set
it to “Accept: application/json”, XML “Accept: application/xml”. Otherwise
leave it out entirely. Specifying the accept header and leaving it as an
empty string causes problems.

Cheers,

Graeme
