EDIT: see the additional “EDIT” at the bottom of this posting.
Attempting to use the REST API with a stand alone Perl application to read a few outputs and display on a web page. When using a web browser, the URL for the REST request displays proper info.
But when making the request programmatically (with Perl’s REST::Client library’s GET() function) the only data returned is ‘IoTaWatt-Login’. So my question is: does the REST API require a username/password and if so, in what format?
Oddly enough, the Perl program functioned properly yesterday with no login. After I reconfigured the IoTaWatt’s Auto Update Class to MAJOR the firmware updated and this problem arose.
Thanks – I’ll be grateful for any light you can shed on this for me.
EDIT (20 minutes later):
Inspired by the thread " [Influx2 upload stopped after upgrade]" I reverted the software from 02_05_12 to the old version (02_06_05). A quick test shows all is working again.
My compliments: the software reversion process was fast and painless.
I’ll leave the Auto Update Class at NONE until I hear further.
