Hi,
I'm interested to use the webAPI to stock and share files through my web app.
I just wanted to try a simple Ping as documented by using Postman and can't even manage to receive a correct answer.
In the documentation this url is provided : https://afterlogic.org/aurora-files?/Api/
but also this one as a test : https://aurora-files.afterlogic.com/?/Api/

Honestly, any input that could help to understand how to work with this webAPI would be nice.

Thanks

Not sure if I understand what the problem is; the URL is obtained by adding ?/Api/ or index.php?/Api/ to main URL of your Aurora Files installation. A few basic samples are available at: https://afterlogic.com/docs/aurora-files/developers-guide/using-web-api

Also note that Web API isn't something external to the product, Aurora Files itself uses for client-server communication, so you can open your own installation or the live demo at https://aurora-files.afterlogic.com/ - and in browser console, you can check the requests sent, the responses coming from web server, etc.

Thank you for your answer. It actually helped to understand how to install aurora file.
Now that I have everything running (on IIS + MySQL), database setted and all, I still try to send a Ping:
{
      Module: 'Core',
      Method: 'Ping'
}

but now I receive:
{"AuthenticatedUserId":0,"@Time":3.3298,"SubscriptionsResult":null,"@TimeApiInit":3.1756,"@LoggerGuid":"46ae75aa","ErrorCode":103,"Module":""}

I saw that error code 103 stands for invalid data, is invalid what I sent in the body request?

Thanks

The request actually looks good, we've just performed one ourselves during our Aurora Files demo installation, you can see the screenshot here. We wonder if it would work for you with the live demo at https://aurora-files.afterlogic.com/?

I just tried to ping the live demo as you did and the response is good. I received the Pong

I recreated the request from scratch using form-data as you did and I'm able to receive the Pong from localhost \o/
Before I used raw body with JSON formatting because it fits more my front app model as I use HttpClient (in angular):

this.http.post('http://localhost/Aurora/?/Api', {
      Module: 'Core',
      Method: 'Ping'
    }).subscribe(data => {
          console.log('Respond ', data);
        },
        error => {
          console.log('Error', error);
        });

Which doesn't work anyway because of cors issue.

Alright, so I have been able to get my ping through my app thanks to your answers.

Working with js and NestJS as a backend, I was used to manipulate directly json object in my body resquests. Thank (again) to your answer, I realized that I had to change the body type.
In case any people pass by:

I used URLSearchParams

Sorry, I'm just a beginner but if anyone has a question let me know.
