    I'm finding more issues with the documentation for the REST API. I currently writing a library that encapsulates the REST API into a simply assembly so that the other developers don't need to worry about what is/isn't needed for calling the REST API's. I was trying to use the function to upload an assembly content. However, every time I would call, /api/reports/assemblyContent?name=testassembly, I'd get a 404 error. It wasn't until I ran fiddler and tried to upload the same assembly with the server UI that I saw what it called, which was POST /api/reports/assemblies?name=testassembly&overwrite=no&comment=(Replaced%20by%20%27csqadev%27)

    Again it seems that there are some inconsistencies with the documentation and what you need to call and/or use.

    Hi Derek,

    Sorry for the inconvenience you're going through while working with the Rest API. Our development team is working on improving the API in the next version of ActiveReports Server i.e 11 and hopefully all these issue would not happen in the new version. I'm going to forward your concern to the dev team so that the inconsistencies can be removed.

    Apologies once again.

    Regards
    Abdias

    As a developer I understand. While it might be a painful process, I'm also look at it more as helping.
