Getting started with REST API (issue)

Post by no_surrender » Mon May 21, 2018 8:54 am

Hello all,

I have some issue trying to see this page http://tm1server:HTTPPortNumber/api/v1/$metadata or http://tm1server:HTTPPortNumber/api/v1/
The message that i get from my browsers is "This page can't be displayed"
What could be wrong?
I've try do it on 2 different servers and different tm1 instances.

Thank you.

You will need to set the installation/ configuration details in the manual:

Specifically the httpportnumber

Did you literally try this address, http://tm1server:HTTPPortNumber/api/v1/$metadata, or did you substitute in the port number for the "HTTPPortNumber" part of the string?

I used real http port number and real server name

Can you give some further indications as to what you have tried, does the link work with localhost when on the server?

Request for assistance guidelines

I've done everything like in manual and tried that link. I've done it right on the server and remotely on my pc. I've tried different servers, different instances, different links (with full server name, short name, localhost)

Are the firewall ports open for port number 5895 or 5898?

Have you re-started the adminhost and verified the port number settings? What have you input for UseSSL?

http://localhost:5895/api/v1/Servers
https://localhost:5898/api/v1/Servers

What version of TM1 are you using, is it still 10.2.2? Which Fix pack? Which browser are you using? Which version? is it compatible? What operating system are you using? What version? These may or may not be relevant but "I've done everything like in manual" does not really help diagnose your error does it.

What is the UseSSL setting in the tm1s.cfg? If it's set to T you'll need to use httpS instead of http.
