REST APIs child are OK but main page returns 404 Edited

I can access all "children" from REST API, but when trying to connect to main page always got 404 error. I need this correct to use with Testlink.

I.e.: When I type the command below in my browser always got the correct JSON reply:

{"self": "","key": "myuser","name": "myname","emailAddress": "myemail","avatarUrls": {"16x16":


"displayName": "myname","active": true,"timeZone": "America/Sao_Paulo","groups": {"size": 24,"items": []},"expand": "groups"}

But when I type just the main page always got this:


 null for uri: http://mypage:8080/rest/api/latest/

Please, what am I doing wrong?

Hi Evaldo,

I don't belive you're doing anything wrong.  When I go to the "parent" endpoint I get a 404 and an "Oops, you've found a dead link" page.  If I do this directly in the browser I get a blank page with no text.

Some endpoints are not publically available to hit which I'm assuming is what's going on here.  Reviewing the API documentation doesn't provide any mentions of directly accessing the "parent" end point as you can with createmeta, issue, etc.




It seems the application I'm running is trying to get "myself" REST option, but the answer is error 404.

The option is on the link bellow:

What I'm getting in return is:

<status><status-code>404</status-code> <message>null for uri: http : //</message></status>

Should I configure something else?

When I run the command bellow everything works perfectly:

http : / / mypage/jira/rest/api/latest/user?username=myuser


I resolved the issue changing my application php file to get user?username=myuser instead of myself.

Thanks a lot.
