Snapshot API get nothing but {"message":"Not found"}

Try various things to generate a snapshot via the api but can only get as far as {“message”:“Not found”}.

Does this look right ?

curl -H “Authorization: Bearer eyJrIjoiZ0FGRjZTMVVBazFZT0xkdWZzWWlwbXF1MWgyeXlrdW8iLCJuIjoiU25hcHNob3QgQWRtaW4iLCJpZCI6MX0=” -H “Content-Type: application/json” -D @body.json

the body.json file is the dashboard json per the API docs.

Getting closer, I had to specify -X POST. Now getting [{“fieldNames”:[“Dashboard”],“classification”:“RequiredError”,“message”:“Required”}] Not sure how to add what it wants…

Here is the json file:

Ok I found the easiest and best way to do what I need. I am now just using phantomjs and getting a jpg of the current live dashboard.

phantomjs --debug=true --web-security=no --ssl-protocol=any --ignore-ssl-errors=yes works.js

works.js contains:

var page = require(‘webpage’).create();

//size of the page
page.viewportSize = {width: 1024, height: 768};

//if you only want a certain area
page.clipRect = {“width”:400,“height”:465,“top”:50,“left”:60};

//authentication stuff
page.customHeaders={‘Authorization’: 'Basic '+btoa(‘USERNAME:PASSWORD’)};

//enter your url to your dashboard‘https://XXX.XXX.XXX:3000/d/L13f1FLmk/XXXXXX?orgId=1’, function (status) {
if (status !== ‘success’) {
console.log(‘Unable to load the address!’);

page.evaluate(function() {
                /* This will set the page background color */
        if (document && document.body) {
            document.body.bgColor = '#FFFFFF';

setTimeout(function() {
       //enter the path to create the jpg and the name of the file you want
}, 5000);


Enjoy :slight_smile:
