API connection to ForwardAir - Server 200 Error - No data to see or work with, please help


#1

Here is my code

I am trying to connect to forward air API - here is there documentation

When I try to “FETCH SCHEMA” I keep getting a server 200 error and I can not see any data to work with ( see below)

What am I doing wrong here? Can someone make this work or post an example of it working, please???

200 is not an error, it means: status = ok. So I think you’re good


#3

I have come to understand that but … how do I get it to show me the data? I need to be able to see the data in order to be able to build the app. When I hit “Fetch Schema” it is supposed to show me the data tree but all I get is that error, how do I get past that?


#4

Some API providers don’t provide a schema where you can open the structure from the schema editor. But you will still probably get the output of that API in your next steps


#5

Not sure what the “next steps” would be, how do I bind items on the page to data fields that can not be seen in the schema data tree?


#6

Seeing the link I think it is a SOAP API. Wappler only supports JSON/REST API.


#7

Well that would explain alot…ok great I can stop beating my head against the RED X on my wall. So are there plans to incorporate support for SOAP API’s …?


#8

Not at the moment, all modern APIs are using REST/JSON and SOAP/XML is slowly disappearing.
