I would like to be able to get some data from my Ning network through the API. But when I do this example that appears in the documentation for developers:

Curl -u yaidelyn@gmail.com \
     -d 'oauth_signature_method = PLAINTEXT & oauth_consumer_key = 0d716e57-5ada-4b29-a33c-2f4af1b26837 & oauth_signature = f0963fa5-1259-434f-86fc-8a17d14b16ca% 26'
     'Https://external.ningapis.com/xn/rest/community.collengworld.com/1.0/Token?xn_pretty=true'

He's giving me the following json:

{
   "Success": false,
   "Reason": "Not Found: null",
   "Status": 404,
   "Code": 2,
   "Subcode": 2,
   "Trace": "89d52a76-3edb-4b18-ae1a-1613256996b7"
} 404

They could offer me some help on this. Explaining that I am doing incorrectly on the above example.

greetings and thanks

  • Greetings Yaidelyn!

    It's going to be hard to debug Ning API code here for you, but try this format:

    curl -v -u yaidelyn@gmail.com -d "oauth_signature_method=PLAINTEXT&oauth_consumer_key=XXXX&oauth_signature=XXXXX%26" -k https://external.ningapis.com/xn/rest/YOURSITE/1.0/Token?xn_pretty=...

    For YOURSITE, I think you need to use whatever your site is set up as, in the format of YOURSITE.ning.com

    In your case, you use collengword.ning.com so use collengword for YOURSITE.

    Make sure there is no space in %26 which is at the end of the oauth_signature.

    Good Luck!

    By the way - why are you using the Ning API?  I think there are better ways to get data from your site which appears to be public.  What are your ultimate goals?  What are you trying to do with your site that you are needing the Ning API for?  You can reply via PM or email to TJ (at) bkserv.com if you want.

    Best wishes!

    TJ
