We have a client who is getting HTTP 503 errors when using the OpenSocial API.  The same functions were working a few days ago.  Is anyone else having this problem?  Thanks.

There are no known issues at this time. Are you using the OpenSocial REST API or are you having an issue with a Profile/Ning App?
Thanks for responding.  I have a message out to the client to reply directly to this, but I am pretty sure they are having the problem with the OpenSocial REST API.

It's my problem.  I started the thread yesterday "PASSWORD RESET DELAY ON OPENSOCIAL" when I was first alerted to the problem by a user who had their Ning password reset.  It turns out the problem is system-wide and is not accepting anyone's username/password combinations.  I'm using the OpenSocial REST API.

Matthew,

 

Can you please post an example OpenSocial request that you are making and is failing?

Devin,

A request was constructed as...

https://[our network name].ning-os.com/xn/rest/1.0/oauth/authenticate?email=[e-mail address]&password=[password]&oauthversion=1.0&oauth_nonce=[random]&oath_timestamp=[timestamp]&oauth_consumer_key=[our consumer key]&oauth_signature_method=PLAINTEXT&oauth_signature=[our consumer secret]%26

 

Again, this has been working for 4 months now with no problem until yesterday afternoon.

Thanks for posting the sample request Mike. I'm seeing the 503 error as well, I've asked engineering to look into it. I'll respond here when I find out more information.
The issue has be resolved, you should be able to make requests again.
