Prism X,

Probably worth noting that these are NOT autentication errors but actual usage errors (and again they shouldn't be raising any errors to log but that's a different story).


Care to describe/explain what you mean by "usage errors"?

Querying something with incorrect parameter names for example. Accidentally hardcoding 'id' instead of 'ids' as a parameter name for the CharacterName page and then just leaving that running querying everything from 0 to MAXINT would be a very good way to get yourself noticed and blacklisted Smile

In the case I'm referring to the control flow of the page itself is just silly and will need fixing. We usually don't see these errors in such numbers unless they're obvious malicious attempts which the case in question was not.
But that still doesn't mean that you should be spamming us with requests which never return you anything other than an error code Wink

Some of us, myself in this case, are on shared hosting web servers with the same IP for multiple .coms. How do we go about checking if we are blacklisted because the connection is refused from my .com server but my desktop on the other side of the U.S. can get the files just fine.

There's some issues with traffic going through level3.net
I can't access API and have troubles using forums through that connection.
OTOH, the ntt.net -> eurorings.net route is fine.

If they applied a blacklist, then they f*cked up again.
For sure the whole 85.180.190.X network is blocked.

It's starting to get a bit annoying. Evil or Very Mad

Hmm, I'm not sure if that's the case.

Although routing works fine (ICMP pakets are returned), the API server doesn't answer any HTTP requests (error 0x80072EFD, "A connection with the server could not be established").

This one's via eurorings.net.

As I promised in the opening post, we would not enable any black listing without letting you know and giving you a recourse for checking and requesting removal from the list.

We are currently experiencing some unrelated issues which we are working on fixing, so the API might be unresponsive at times throughout the day.

UPDATE: We have identified and fixed the issue causing connection issues to the API. This was a separate issue from the slow response times, which is still being worked on.

well, something must have happened to the better - api performance has greatly improved in average over the last four days (see my graph link a bit up this thread). whatever it was that was improved (by ccp) or removed (from hammering the server) or whatever else... thanks... :)

An additional bit of functionality that would help (me in the least) is a api call that would return what kind of authentication key has been provided. Currently when a user enters their info, I have to run through a few different api calls to ensure they provided the api key they think they did.

You should only have to do a couple and they are small ones. Account Balance and CharacterSheet. First tells you for sure if they gave you their full key and second one what roles/titles they currently hold in their corp.

Does this include API keys of lapsed accounts? or just invalid API keys? as with our application we would like to know when our tracked accounts resub.

I'm sure that hitting a dedicated API point to lookup api key information would be quicker than using the existing points as a test.

After all the API key information will be already cached from authentication, and would avoid hitting the disks for other data (balance and such).

Nice to see something going on in the API world. I still hope that some of the user related requests, fixes and patches can be handled someday. Like an X-Mas gift for the upcoming expension :-)

Keep on working :-) *thumbsup*

Does this issue also happen for API request for characters that are not active (due to currently having no subscription)?
