Mashape API Interface Down?

Today I spot check my Mashape API Analytics Usage on Mashape API Platform. Check out the link here. I felt really down when I see the traffic goes down to zero. I quickly control my tears log in to my several back end servers and confirmed no issue, working perfectly. But I tried to click “Test Endpoint” on Mashape API hub for my API, it showed no responsive.

I referred to Endpoint definition, found something strange. Under first box, the URL something like http://elb-proxy… this is an Amazon URL, they change to Amazon URL as a proxy. Previously is https://text-sentiment.p.mashape.com/analyze. They are not testing properly… Directly change in production.

And I manually run the CURL command line in my terminal, you know what happen?

It complained me to use HTTPS protocol. Eh, you changed to Amazon URL why don’t use HTTPS. I quickly test another people API, also got this problem, so, Mashape you tricks us.

Guys, please use the old API interface confirmed still working.


curl -X POST --include "https://text-sentiment.p.mashape.com/analyze" \
-H "X-Mashape-Host: text-sentiment.p.mashape.com" \
-H "X-Mashape-Key: Ri4j5gX4ORmshweHbjBSUUMevXWIp1i0xRujsnjCz7wW9w5zLB" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-d "text=I am not really happy"

Alternatively, please visit my Runnable example code, also working. Link: http://runnable.com/U80nxyBJjrp4wcOH/text-sentiment-analysis-for-node-js-and-mashape

I had inbox Mashape Guys to look into this issue matter.
