Unable to access FAUCET API


#1

Hi,

I am using BLOC API to create a user.
And then I am trying to use FAUCET REST API from STRATO API, but it is giving error 400:BAD REQUEST.
Also I am not able to see FAUCET option(True/False) in BLOC API while creating user using its REST API’s.
Please suggest a solution to use REST API’s for FAUCET or any alternate solution so as to create user and make transactions from front-end.

Hello,

I also noticed this issue which was introduced a few weeks ago, Before that I was able to use this function using my C# Stratos API (https://github.com/StefH/strato-api)

Has anyone had any luck with this yet? I still can’t fund my strato account using the faucet api in the swagger docs here: https://stratodev.blockapps.net/docs/?url=/strato-api/eth/v1.2/swagger.json.

In the meantime, I encourage you to spin up your own node, which would resolve the issue.

Please feel free to reach out to me with your use case and we can schedule a pair-programming session to review the APIs.

The issue has been resolved - you should be able to faucet your accounts now.

    • TIP: remove quotes in the faucet request body: “address=deadbeef” should be address=0x123…
