I have noticed that the JSON of some comics such as Rocket Raccoon #3 have 0 characters in the ResourceList, I would expect the main characters, Groot and Rocket, to be present there.

What's the difference between Marvel 'events' and Marvel 'stories'?

I realize this might be the wrong forum for this... Do the marvel or marvel unlimited ios apps support custom url schemes or applinks (http://applinks.org)? I'm looking into ways to link from my app to specific comics in either marvel app.

Anyway to figure out how many calls you have left or when they'll get reset? Overdid it on a script last night and got rate limited, still waiting for it to come back...

352 comments. Isn't it time to retire this for a proper set of forums? Heck, even a simple Google Group would be better. Sorry to add to the noise, but I'd like to see something more dev friendly here.

Dude, he was a frog once. A woman taking up the hammer isn't a big deal. If you need a masculine hero there's still a long list available like Captain America, Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man, Cable, Thing, and so on and and on and on....

Hey guys, cool api but I'm receiving a 401 error with the following message {"code":"InvalidCredentials","message":"This user is not allowed to use that service."}, anyone else having the same issue?

Curious, why does the API return 409 (conflict) when searching for resources? Not an API design expert, but having every error code being the same makes our lives a bit harder, don't you think? Thanks in advance for explaining! Cheers!

What's the situation with missing descriptions for some really classic characters - Loki, Doom, Magneto all have zero data in the description field.  Seems like that would be kind of problematic for many users of the API.

How often will the "character" fields be updated?  I noticed there are a lot of comics without info, or without the right info (Iron Man is in almost every Wolverine comic!).


Is this something that comes in by drips and drops everyday, a major update every few months or no update in sight?

hi, is there a way to test the api on my localhost?

Is there a general guideline as to how the same characters from different universes are separated? For example, there are two Jean Greys when you pull from the API. 


IDs (1009496, 1009327) 


Any rhyme or reason as to why?

Just an FYI if requesting with /v1/public/characters and you set nameStartsWith to a 0 (ZERO) you will get a 409 "nameStartsWith cannot be blank if it is set"

Suggestion: All API endpoints should be able to be ordered by ID.

@dolapofalola I recently started looking into that and found that the Marvel Unlimited ios app has two custom url schemes:


com.chaoticmoon.Unlimited://

and

fb193166954153103://


which make it possible to launch the app from Safari.


However, I have no idea at this point if any parameter can be passed to the app to jump straight to a specific comic.


So far, anything I passed in the URL have been ignored by the app.

@cfjedimaster Can we start this ourselves? I mean open a Google+ Group as a community open source initiative where we can share our efforts and help each other out? If we do that will the Marvel team join us and help there too?

@anteres01 Please keep discussions in this thread around the developer portal and API.

@fteem We use a variety of error codes for other types of errors (see http://developer.marvel.com/documentation/authorization near the end).  409 errors are mostly used for missing or invalid parameters in queries to the API.  Each error code returned has both a numerical code and a short text description that explains the error.

@holyelvis We will check this out - most major characters should have something.

@jontower They are updated frequently but sporadically.

I am having similar issues, I have a small node server that is running port :4200 I have 'localhost' and 'localhost*' addded as referres, but I still can not get access. I get 'No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:4200' is therefore not allowed access.'  


Any ideas?

@andz-85 What error message are you receiving?

Sorry, what I really meant was all API endpoints that can be ordered should allow ID as a method of sorting them. :)

@joebordes I don't speak for Marvel, if I did, I'd make them make a Secret Wars movie. ;)

I have able to solve my issue, it was just a bad request it looks like.

@cfjedimaster @joebordes Yes, I understood that :-) , but your proposal is a good idea and the people on the marvel developer's team are listening, so I suppose it is a good place to start the discussion.


I love the secret wars idea! so +1 for that one too :-D

@joebordes Honestly, I just don't feel right doing it. I think a Marvel rep should do it. If they have chosen not to, well, that is their choice. I don't agree with it, but as I've brought it up a few times now, I'll probably just give up bugging them about it. ;)
