  1. VATSIM API Update 22/06/2021 User details removed from /ratings/{idnum} request for security reasons. Authentication required. Information for application for a key is available at
  2. Is what it says when you pass the P0 exam. On the support page, and duplicate page in myVATSIM it says
  3. Spamming the forum doesn't get anything accelerated. You've only read the material. You have not completed (and passed) the New Member exam as described on the last page. On this page, you will also see both your previous attempts.
  4. You opened 2 tickets. One was closed with a reference to the other ticket. I have asked the guys responsible to re-check it. Matt
  5. There were some ongoing issues in DigitalOcean which holds the files before we serve them back over the data endpoints. Best idea is to check the status page as that will be the first place any ongoing errors will be commented. VATSIM Network Status
  6. I've removed the requirement for the alternate. I didn't add this, I've enquired why it was added as a required field as it was left blank exactly for the reasons you have detailed. Matt
  7. Hi Alec Your account is currently inactive. Please go here myVATSIM to reactivate it, give it a few hours to propagate through the system and you will be good to go! Matt
  8. Following internal tech team communications, and a discussion I had with Gunnar yesterday evening, we have extended the EOL date to the 1st March, with the potential to extend to the 31st if deemed absolutely necessary. With staff in the Development Discord, there are several solutions being created by the community that will be shared by VATSIM when they are complete, to aid in the transition and to provide a quick solution for access to the feed. These changes have full approval of the Board of Governors. I, nor anyone, can or should be expected to check or know of every singl
  9. We're investigating this now @Daniel Roesen
  10. 820 slots 1675 requests Half of them won't have got a slot. Those who didn't will be prioritised in March to give them some chance.
  11. From what I can tell. service base URL needs to be https://auth.vatsim.net not your domain. It might be worth looking at nested properties for the field mappings. Not sure how to do it as VATSIM doesn't have our own moodle service. There are several divisions that do so might be able to elaborate if they have achieved it. Matt
  12. After communications with our email provider, it turned out that a problematic sender also using the IP led to it going onto a reputable blacklist. This was not as the result of any emails that were being sent by VATSIM and the issues resulting in Microsoft domain based emails have been resolved as far as we can tell. Matt
  13. Hi Sarantos You should be able to use the built in, or any, OAuth2 module. Matt
  14. That system is being replaced with a new one currently in development.
  15. Hi guys, I'll reach out to them to investigate this further. Matt
  16. Thanks for the spot @Wildan Gunawan - I've updated that
  17. I'm hoping to have the fix out tonight. It's just going through some more testing before we release it publicly. To cover a few of the other points that have been raised since: Here's the challenge. Trying to appease to one part of the world while then damaging the other parts. No body can win and it will take both client and server updates for us to be able to move to a global ICAO based solution. Another thing we are trying to pull data on for other purposes and there's no reason not to share this information once we have it ourselves. This as note
  18. Hi everyone I've spoken to a couple of people in the loop already but want to clarify for everyone else's benefit as transparency is critical at this point. There was some disconnect in information in how clients would support this and I apologise to those, especially in the US, as to how this has impacted you. Modernising the network is a big thing for everyone, we all want flashy new things and to get there takes baby steps. This was meant to be one of them but hasn't gone quite as well as we might have hoped 😞 Obviously we need to find a solution, even just a temporary
  19. Ah @Calum Stevens we've got a wider technical issue with the reactivate. 10 mins after you did it, it removed your active status. I have manually flagged you as active again as I can see the issue in logs. Please try to connect to the network before 2300Z to ensure this doesn't carry on overnight and I will work on a fix right away.
  20. Hi all I appreciate the time that this has been posted but I wanted to provide an update on how pilot ratings are handled on the technical front after the change to the pilot ratings. I have tried to keep this change as minimal as possible to alleviate any immediate impact and I expect that in the coming weeks we'll have a complete change to how we return ratings in our API endpoints but more information to follow. VATSIM is continuing to use a bitmask value, this historically has allowed members to hold a P1, P2, P3 and a P5 or a selection of some and not others. The change to
  21. Hi Brian, There have been no changes to the server or way METARs are output. The image you've attached isn't viewable so can you share it directly in the forum here and I can look further. Matt
  22. This was due to an issue is some dodgy data in the feed. This has since been corrected and is all functional again. Matt
  23. The website is now back up and running with the original links working.
