Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks - 404 from JSON API

Postby faminebadger » Wed May 23, 2018 3:10 pm

Hi,

Has anyone successfully scrapped information on this show using the new JSON API?

I use kodi, and it fails reporting 404 (which https://api.thetvdb.com/swagger says means no results found, which makes sense) with any of the variations I've tried to get around the punctuation.

Note, the other Fate series seem to have scrapped ok, therefore I suspect it's the ":" character that's putting everything off.

For example, here are some errors from the log showing the name with a dash instead of the colon, a space instead of the colon, using the colon, not using anything for the colon - all fail to return any results:

Code: Select all

However, using the web search manually through my browser, pasting in any of the above strings does find multiple results (including the correct series) - so I suspect this is a different mechanism.

Any hints much appreciated.

Shame, I'd have thought it quite easy for a dev with knowledge of the API code to trivially test this case and find out if there's a problem / what's gone wrong, but can't be bothered I see.

No thanks for the help.

The API has been experiencing intermittent failures that the developers have been trying to address in this time, until a statement is made regarding that status it'd be premature to address issues caused by it.

Try "Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works" instead... that's why the short handle is UBW... if there were an issue with a mere ":" the forum would most likely be burning :).

Code: Select all

https://api.thetvdb.com/search/series?name=Fate%2FStay%20Night%3A%20Unlimited%20Blade%20Works


(nvm: saw your actual query. still works tho. Adding in wrong characters is not a good idea anyhow (removing the /, adding - etc.))
