Live API responds with 500 for many different requests and API key creation problems


ArturCz

Question

Hi,

since yesterday I am having problems with IG's live API, at least these requests respond with 500 and "errorCode: null" for me:

  • GET /watchlists
  • GET /marketnavigation
  • GET /session

IG's demo API seems to be fully functional, the issue exists only for IG's live API which is more severe of course.

I am currently also not able to generate a new API key (live as well as demo) as I get a notification that the key can not be created due to technical problems. As the IG status page shows that everything is operational, are you still aware of some current problems with the live API or might it be a problem which is uniquely linked to my account?

Looking forward to a statement as soon as possible as the live API is not really usable for me at the moment.

Also checked live trading functionality with IG's REST API companion. Nothing is working and responding with HTTP 500 (internal server error). This is going on for more than 24 hours already and the IG status page still shows that all systems are operational...

Hi,

same issue here (Live -> errorCode: none / Demo -> working). REST API companion shows the same results, so it's not an issue of the app (Login to Live in companion is OK, but a simple "Get Account Settings" already results in HTTP: 500 / status: error).

I already sent an email to the support, hopefully this will be fixed soon - Live system currently is useless.

The issue with the "technical problem" during creation of a new API key already persists since weeks, so this seems to be a different problem.

Regards,
Stef

Fortunately, the issues seem to be resolved by now. Don't know what went wrong on IG's side but at least everything is working as expected again.

Here is some constructive criticism from my side which might in the best case contribute to some improvements in the future:

All in all, I don't like the fact that the contact link on the IG Labs page for API related information is already dead for more than a year and that forum support seems to be a bit sparse. It would not be such a problem if the demo API was down from time to time. But it is a whole other thing if the live API is completely unusable for more than 24 hours and that there seems to be no real way to contact IG with API related issues (which were for sure not caused from my side with buggy requests). There are better ways to handle such situations and maybe IG is willing to improve a bit on it in the future. ūüĎć

    • If you still think the billions being spent on infrastructure is just to see off the covid endemic now might be a good time to wake up. ¬† ¬†Meanwhile in Taiwan, 'Well that's strange: In Taiwan, the number of people dying after their COVID-19 vaccination is exceeding the number of deaths from the virus itself.'¬† 1nPr0p0rt10n2¬†@1Pr0p0rt10n2¬†¬†4h More Die After Vaccination Than From COVID-19 in Taiwan (ntd.com) ¬† A US hospital healthcare worker explains the use of the PCR to inflate covid hospitalisations and death¬†numbers.

    • Continuing the story of above and exposing the complete corruption of modern main stream media and¬†it's promotion of fake news. To recap, the US comedian Joe Rogan told how one Sunday he felt very unwell and tested positive for covid, he took ivermectin and anti clonal antibodies and by Wednesday felt fine. CNN picked up the story saying Rogan took a horse de-wormer and showed a distorted colour pic. A 5 minute google search would have revealed the history of ivermectin; It was created in the 1980's as an anti parasitic medication that was also found to have anti viral properties and won the creators the Nobel prize and was placed on the WHO's list of 'essential' medicines, it¬†has¬†proved so safe it has been¬†used as treatment and as a prophylactic¬†by over a billion people.¬†Further research found it also had veterinarian uses for a wide range of animals. Back to human use and 64 studies 32 being random controlled found ivermectin to be highly affective against covid but the FDA has not given approval for it's use against covid. If it did¬†the EUA's for the new vaccines would have to be withdrawn. This does not ban doctors from proscribing¬†ivermectin however¬†and many do. CNN knew all this but watch this short vid that highlights the degree to which they pushed their fake narrative knowing full well it was fake. ¬† ¬† Meanwhile the latest US VAERS data is out: ¬† ¬† And Italy protests the vaccine mandates; ¬† ¬† . ¬† ¬†
