Plugins store seems to be broken for me.

EDIT: yes, it’s broken. From the logs:

FileUtils::ReadURL 0/resp:403 user: pass: size 226 http://apps.mios.com/get_plugin_version2.php?plugin=8871&accesspoint=[snip]&platform=mt7620a_Luup
&firmware=1.7.4000&oem=1

response:

403 Forbidden

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /get_plugin_version2.php on this server.

@therealdb

Service should be restored now. It was just a file system error due to a backup replication issue which because of the reduced personnel over the Holidays period, it slipped out.

We’re sorry about that.

#7

What is this service please and how to use it?

#8

Sorry about that, was in reply to therealdb and his error.

It’s about the apps.mios.com service and the ability to install plugins on your Vera.

#9

do we need to do anything to activate or install it?

Thanks,
Cor

#10

OK, you released an update to “Release Candidate Customers”. Shouldn’t the title state such as this is not a General Public Release or are we all considered RC customers? I’m looking forward to updates and would be willing to partake but shouldn’t releases for “Release Candidate Customers” fall into an beta section under Official Announcement? Its confusing me but congratulations on the release and i hope to hear of it success!

Something like:
Official Announcements / Release Candidate Customers / Vera MMS Core Cloud and Portal v 7.29 are now LIVE
add a link for the ability to update a bug list with instructions on how you want them formatted…

#13

I’m wondering about this as well, where is there some info on this?

It was actually a general public release. Sorry for that, I’ve updated.
The upcoming forum update will have better categories.

any more information on what does this bring for plugin developpers ?
for instance does it give a public API to support account authentication ( kind of oauth ) in order to enable 3rd party extension to login and remotely access VERAs ?

amg0, I know that you and every one of our plugins developers are eager for a revamped API with well-written documentation.

While this update is a foundation, there’s still a lot of work to do, and as soon as we have something you will be the first ones to have the hands-on with it.

thank you appreciated
I can deal with half well written documentation :wink: , but I cannot workaround the existence of a proper oauth protocol implementation to enable integrations
