Just mentioning it so I don't sound like a liar.. looks like we're back to text/plain and non-gzipped auction data files, at least for some of them..

And it's gonna get tricky to participate in this forum when all of my accounts expire, heh.
I did receive different types of headers from one request to another. Maybe I'm missing something in my query (header? parameter?). Here is what I got when querying US-Zul'jin (http://us.battle.net/auction-data/zuljin/auctions.json - URL never changed during the day BTW):
The Content-Type simply states application/json, but there is no mention of the encoding. I expect UTF-8 but this is not mentionned in the headers. It did however show up in other types of queries, such as Character Classes (http://us.battle.net/api/wow/data/character/classes):
It was across many realms when it happened. The last I saw was on /auction-data/icecrown/auctions.json at 23:16:11 GMT. It's now 01:33 GMT and it looks like all realms are behaving properly. I'll keep an eye on my logs and let you know more specifics if it happens again.
Got Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8 from US-Zul'jin this morning, looks like it's fixed.
Let's just hope gzip content-type for auctions dump will be available.
When I request the AH data for the Dalaran server, it does not appear to be gzip compressed:
With the new auction house API, will there be a way to get the item images when you get a list of all the auctions?
Currently, an item URL on the Blizzard servers is http://us.media.blizzard.com/wow/icons/56/inv_helmet_plate_raidpaladin_i_01.jpg which doesn't use the item ID.
Item ID is the only thing that comes back from the API
First off, I love the new api and the idea behind it!. That said, I have a request for the new AH api.
The current data dump only shows active auctions and offers no way to track high turn over items/auctions. The simple answer is to bump the frequency from 1 hour to 5 or 10 minutes but even that only makes the missing auction window smaller. Ultimately what I would like to see is something like this:
where sold,canceled, and expired are the auctions that ended since the last update (obviously grouped by reason). You may already have a solution to this problem in the works via this api or a yet to be released version but if not is it possible to get something like this added to the wish list?
legit reason: to accurately track auctions stats for fast moving items and auctions (cloth, dust, crazy low priced items). I'm ok with not giving the status of the sale, but there should at least be a section for auctions that never show up in any update files due to the update frequency. Not sure how my post makes you question my legitimacy.
