xServer Internet 2 URLs

Postby Gerhard » Thu Jul 13, 2017 2:58 pm

I would like to give the xLocation component of the xServer Internet 2 a try. Therefore I tried the following JavaScript/jQuery code:

javascript code
url: 'https://xserver2-europe-eu-test.cloud.ptvgroup.com/services/rest/XLocate/2.4/locations/Berlin',
type: 'GET',
cache: false,
timeout: 5000,
beforeSend: function (xhr) { xhr.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Basic ' + btoa('xtok:TOKEN')); },
success: function(result) { console.log(result); },
error: function(result) { console.log(result); },

Is it necessary to have the specific version 2.4 in the URL or is there also a possibility to have something like "latest v2"?

And is the domain xserver2-europe-eu-test.cloud.ptvgroup.com the correct way to go? I'm somehow confused by the "test" in the URL. Could you also tell me the correct URL for North America? (We have been using https://svc-eu-n.cloud.ptvgroup.com/ (Europe) and https://svc-na-n.cloud.ptvgroup.com/ (North America) for xServer Internet 1)

Hello Gerhard,

You can approach the xServer 2 modules by various different levels:
  • The latest version
  • The numbered version
  • The experimental version
List of the endpoints at https://xserver2-europe-eu-test.cloud.ptvgroup.com/dashboard/Default.htm#Administration/Services.htm%3FTocPath%3DAdministration%7C_____5

So in the screenshot you can see the potential destination for geocoding on latest version:
https://xserver2-europe-eu-test.cloud.p ... cate?_wadl

Happy with that?

About the availability of xServer2 in combination with the US map (or other maps than europe):
This is a strategic question. I'll forward it to product management and ask them for an answer.
