Schema documents (XSD, YAML) inaccessible

Post by jc275 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 11:47 am

The schema documents (XSD and YAML files) listed at ... html#tab-3 are not accessible.

Instead, each of the links returns the following response:

Code: Select all

    <message>This request has been rejected due to the violation of Fair Use policy</message>
(Violation of the fair use policy seems very unlikely. I had only just switched on my computer and navigated to that page in the web browser.)

You will have to open those documents using development environments like POSTMAN or similar in connection with your user credentials. Since 3.2 is no longer available for anonymous usage that means that also documents linked to that version need to have valid credentials to be displayed

Vesna for OPS support
