Subject: [EXTERNAL] [WEB400] Creating my first IWS REST webservice
Sent by: "WEB400" <web400-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
I've worked through Nadir's tutorial (
imported the generated swagger file into Postman to create a collection.
was then able to test all the endpoints for students. Great...but thenI
was thinking that I had created the servers from the wizard using my ownwith
profile which has a lot of authority (too much).
So I deleted everything and started again this time using the default
profile of QWSERVICE. Everything worked great until I tried testing on
Postman where I received an error as the password was *none.
Not wanting to change an IBM profile I copied the profile to WSERVICE1
a password. I deleted everything and tried the wizard again. This timelog
nothing would start.
So I have two questions.
The first being I'm sure if the problem is with the new profile or I
entered something wrong while using the wizard. But I can't find any
that gives me a hint as to the problem.
Where I should look to shed a light on the issue?
The second has to do with the user profile. Is it recommended to use
QWSERVICE or create a copy as I have done?
