Custom domain for data API

(Al Lee) #1

I followed the description available at here mgmt_custom_domain and mapping-a-domain-name-to-your-backendless-file-storage and did search a lot inside the forum for any clear hint if it’s possible or not to access API ( REST) with custom domain setup.
I’m using backendless REST API and would like to be able to access/update data tables from custom domain.

Method: GET [PUT, POST, ...]

What I get is the error “Action not found” with the html status code 404, Although the CNAME setup and mapping is correctly done.
My question is: Is it possible to access data tables from custom domain name with REST API?

Is your application in Backendless cloud? If yes please provide your application id. If not please send your custom domain to or just share it here in the topic.

We’re currently working on a fix related to custom domains. We’ll notify you here when it’ll be available

Thanks Anton,
You mean, what I’m asking for will be ready in near future? Because I have to decide about my APP structure sooner, and if there is such hope, I can consider the availibity of the REST API from custom domain.

Hi Al,

We have made a few changes and the custom domains should be working in the 4.0 environment. Could you please check and confirm?

Dear Mark,

Unfortunately, not still

I just tried opening your domain in a browser and it worked just fine for me:</img>

Dear Mark,

The file access is Ok, but I need to access data tables in custom domain. I still receive “Action not found” error when trying this:

Method: GET


(Mark Piller) #10

Got it. Let us work some more on this.


(Mark Piller) #11

Hi Al,

It has been fixed for the API calls as well. Please check and confirm.

You guys are great. What you’ve done is a real milestone. Thank you so much.

I see everything is working like a charm, however will also test other aspects (like permissions, roles, login, …) and will let you know.

Once again, thank you sincerely
