jBackend POST was created by AndyG
Hi

I'm writing a plug-in for jBackend that will take POST data.

It seems though, that api_key cannot be sent via POST. I have tried to send and receive data via POST, but it will not accept the api_key, so that is kind of a stopper.

Would you be able to check this works please? Perhaps I am doing something simple wrong.

I was writing my code based on www.selfget.com/documentation/jbackend-joomla30/developers-guide.html and the "Hello World" plugin example.

It would be really good if the hello world example included a POST example.

Great extension by the way, thank you. I posted a review on the new JED last week to say so.

Thanks

Andy

Hi Andy,
the api_key is checked by the main jBackend component (in the request model) to grant access using:
// Check API key
$api_key = $app->input->getString('api_key');

To support both GET and POST It should be changed into:
// Check API key
$api_key = $app->input->request->getString('api_key');

Let me check this and I will release a fix and let you know...

Kind regards,
Luigi

I have checked and it works AS-IS also with post. If you still have problems let me know (you can send me an email at info(at)selfget.com) and I can help you to fix the issue.

Kind regards,
Luigi

Hi Luigi

Thanks for checking this out, great to know.

I had to switch projects for a day, and just back onto it this afternoon.

I created a PHP test script using CURL to simulate the App, and had it working with GET, but POST will be a better option I think. Initially, on Monday, I had issues with POST, but that may have been a bug in my test script.

Great to hear it works as-is, thank you, I'll switch my code to POST and continue testing and development.

Thanks for the great extension.

Hi Luigi

Thanks for checking that for me. I'm just revisiting it and found I had a bug jBackend plug-in code.

It's working nicely now with post.

Thanks
