Default Create a new product using REST API

I am trying to create a new product using the REST API. I use the demo in a browser:
Code:
https://some-address/admin.php?target=RESTAPI&_key=my-write-key&_path=product/0&method=post&model[sku]=sweatshirt&model[price]=10.00&model[amount]=100&model[translations][0][ code ]=en&model[translations][0][name]=sweatshirt
(the intervals in [ code ] are to make the BBCode happy with formatting. Just ignore them)
The response only says null, with no error indications and the new product is not available in the catalog or in the database.
If I do
Code:
https://some-address/admin.php?target=RESTAPI&_key=my-write-key&_path=product
I receive a JSON array of product descriptions.

Am I doing something wrong?
REST API version: 5.3.2
XCART version: 5.3.1.6 Rev0

Default Re: Create a new product using REST API

I've tried it on my local computer and it has created a new product and responded with a JSON info about the new product (including its product_id):
http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/rest_api_documentation.html#creating-product

Do you see any error messages in the var/log/ directory?
Also, do you see any error messages in the JavaScript console in your browser when you open the URL?
Are you sure that you use the correct key (that is allowed to write data to the database)?

Default Re: Create a new product using REST API

Thank you for your response. The only suspicious log I find is in the access log:
Code:
[ 06:19:10.000000 ] Controller class not found! Runtime id: a3c8b2b58123395330222b2046272cac SAPI: apache2handler; IP: IP.IP.IP.IP URI: /favicon.ico Method: GET

I doublechecked that I am using the read/write key. I also made sure that the read-only key and the read/write key are not the same.

The only string I receive in the response stream is this null. I am pasting the request and response headers here (sensitive information masked):
Request (when in browser):
Code:
Accept:text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Encoding:gzip, deflate, sdch Accept-Language:en-US,en;q=0.8,bg;q=0.6,ru;q=0.4,es;q=0.2 Connection:keep-alive Cookie:LCRefererCookie=http%3A%2F%2F192.168.1.34%3A81%2Fbitnami%2Findex.html; mage-messages=%5B%5D; recent_login=some-login; xid_admin_logged=admin_logged; xid=GQMVUKjlmet8lFjNfcnS6gi5krDhyuCY Host:---.---.---.---:---- If-Modified-Since:Thu, 22 Dec 2016 06:19:09 -0800 If-None-Match:37a6259cc0c1dae299a7866489dff0bd Upgrade-Insecure-Requests:1 User-Agent:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.87 Safari/537.36

Response 304 (Not modified):
Code:
Connection:Keep-Alive Date:Thu, 22 Dec 2016 14:22:52 GMT ETag:37a6259cc0c1dae299a7866489dff0bd Keep-Alive:timeout=5, max=100 Server:Apache Set-Cookie:xid=GQMVUKjlmet8lFjNfcnS6gi5krDhyuCY; path=/; domain=---.---.---.---; httponly Vary:Cookie

I have the same situation when issuing the request from a program.

It sounds like the server returns some cached empty response, but I'm not sure why this may happen, unfortunately.
I think you should contact our support staff by submitting a ticket at https://secure.x-cart.com/ - they can check it right on your server.
