I'm studying xAPI and noticed that Rest API is available with IPS4. Before you get frustrated with me: when I mean studying xAPI I mean just read a few articles and going to begin a deep dive. But I was wondering, in the Admin section of IPS4 where it allows for setting up REST API...where is the "Do-It" button. That might be soooo simplistic. Anyway, don't mean to waste your time but if you have extra, thanks.
when you go to Rest API in the acp under system, it will ask you to download and upload a file to /api, there are other directions that i wont go into detail. from there, once the file is uploaded, click "continue" and it will present you with a new area, on one the first tab is "API Keys" and from there you create a new one and the API should be ready to roll. remember to be sure to assign endpoint permissions for the key, or none of it will work
Don't forget to also read through the documentation in the Dev Center:
Thanks to both. I'll download the file and do the reading. Thanks. This should be fun. Now I know where to go for help.
this is the better place, as this is more for kicking IPS dev's around
Thanks both. I went to both and I'm reading. Question on the Dev.Mode.
If I install the Dev and go to Dev Mode: can I get out of Dev back into production mode? If so, is there a button to do so or do I have to "rem out" (Old term) the code then refresh?
you'll need these for the IPS apps, and you will need to get them for any third party app/plugin ( you can use my app https://invisionpower.com/files/file/8266-storm-dev-tools/ to generate those files, its better than hunting them all down )
once you get them and upload the IPS dev files, and generate/upload the ones for your third party stuff, all you will need to do is create a constatnts.php and add this line to it:
define( 'IN_DEV', true );
and then to disable it:
define( 'IN_DEV', false );
Got it. Thanks. If you see puff of smoke where an IPS blew up somewhere...that would be mine.
