cURL return "There was an error processing the request"

✔ Recommended Answer

First, I want to thank @rezashamdaniHis answer wasn't the exact answer, but it gave me a strong hint until I could finally found it.

He said that the problem was with the "\\/Date(1430697600000)\\/" in the json string I sent. I might need to simulate the javascript date function. I found out in its javascript file where the XHR executed that the date string was reformatted using local function toAspDateFormat which changes "/Date(1430697600000)/" to "\\/Date(1430697600000)\\/". It shows that the escape character is important. I change the --data-binary from my cURL to this: "{""schedulerInfo"":{""ViewStart"":""\/Date(1430092800000)\/"",""ViewEnd"":""\/Date(1430697600000)\/"",""LocationId"":""All Locations"",""IsReadOnly"":true,""UseAppointmentLocationTimezone"":true,""ApplicationType"":2,""OrgId"":""29f8130e-ea28-4cd7-8bb0-298f753d9d17"",""ObjectViewIdCombos"":""63be552d-cb71-40e7-aa6f-5289d7e766e9.2cb73398-53ff-4a9e-adda-3444fb771702""}}"

It works perfectly now.

Method #2

The "There was an error processing the request" message from cURL can occur for a variety of reasons. Here are some common reasons and potential solutions:

  1. Incorrect URL or API endpoint: Check that the URL you are trying to access is correct and that the API endpoint you are trying to access is still valid.

  2. Invalid or missing authentication credentials: Make sure you are passing the correct authentication credentials, such as an API key or access token, in your cURL request.

  3. Invalid or missing request parameters: Check that you are sending the correct parameters and values required by the API endpoint. Verify that the format of the data being sent is valid and matches the requirements of the API.

  4. Server-side issues: The error message could be a result of a server-side issue, such as a problem with the API or server maintenance. Check the API documentation or website to see if there are any known issues or maintenance scheduled.

  5. Network connectivity issues: Check that your network connectivity is stable and that your internet connection is not experiencing any disruptions.

  6. API Rate Limits: Some APIs impose rate limits on requests, which can cause errors if you exceed the limit. Check the API documentation to see if there are any rate limits imposed and ensure that you are staying within them.

If none of the above solutions work, you may want to contact the API provider for further assistance or consult the API documentation for any additional troubleshooting steps.
