VWS API Description

January 9, 2013 - 2:33am #1

I miss a condensed list of the VWS API functions available and it would help at least to update the API subpages at https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/managing-targets-cloud-database-using-developer-api

  • I couldn't get the API calls at the /summary resource to work: 404 resource not found. Are these calls obsolete?
  • There's no mentioning/description of the DELETE method on /target/target-id. The availability of that method call can only be derived from the sample implementation.

Btw, are there any plans to extend the API to allow the creation of new databases or manage subsets of a database (i.e. use only a subset of a DB for recognition and switch subsets)?

To all who were interested in the /summary feature:

a sample (Java) showing how to use the /sumamry feature is now available in the VWS Java Samples package here:

https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/managing-targets-cloud-database-using-developer-api

(see VWS Sample Code at the bottom of the page)

And a further little update:

the "/summary" feature is currently not supported but I got confirmation that it will be enabled very soon in the next system update (this should happen within a few weeks)

Just a little update on the missing "DELETE" documentation, this is currently being addressed, the updated doc should then be included in the web portal soon..

Thanks for the clarification

Thanks for the clarification bernhard

I have checked with the Documentation / Portal gurus and yes the documentation of the VWS API is a little behind at the moment, but we are aware of it and it will be addressed in the future.

The API call to /summary is a bug and is on the list to be addressed.

Documentation of DELETE - yes it's missing at present and will eventually go here:

    https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/updating-target-cloud-database

 

"Btw, are there any plans to extend the API to allow the creation of new databases or manage subsets of a database (i.e. use only a subset of a DB for recognition and switch subsets)?"

No - the recommended strategy is to create multiple databases or activate/deactivate subsets of images to restrict the search space.

VWS API Overview and Database and Summary Report

January 9, 2013 - 9:53am #3

I'm already familiar with Vuforia, so I was first looking for the VWS API description only in the API section (https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/api/index) instead of the Dev Guide but couldn't find it there ... 

The overview of the available API calls itself at https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/managing-targets-cloud-database-using-developer-api is sufficient in my mind if updated to reflect all available calls used in the example code (i.e. add the delete target method and maybe correct the references/descriptions for database and target summary reports - see below).

 

Regarding the API calls that are not working for me I was refering to the database and summary reports:

Quote:

To keep track of your application's performance and traction, the API provides several different reports:

 

When I make an API call to /summary (GET method) I receive:
 
HTTP Status 404 - Status report
message
description The requested resource () is not available.
Apache Tomcat/6.0.35
 
The same happens for /summary/[target-id] ,...

 

Hi Bernard, So just to

Hi Bernard,

So just to summarise that what you are after is a single page that introduces the API like a level above the individual API:

Add - https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/adding-target-cloud-database-api

Update - https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/updating-target-cloud-database

Retrieve - https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/retrieving-target-cloud-database

Have I understood correctly?

 

"I couldn't get the API calls at the /summary resource to work: 404 resource not found. Are these calls obsolete?"

Sorry, which API calls are you referring to?

 

"There's no mentioning/description of the DELETE"

Correct - this is a little more complicated - but I get your point that it is not currently documented.

 

"are there any plans to extend the API..."

Sorry, there is nothing to say in this regard.
