IBM Watson Error


#1

Playing around with IBM Watsons. Got the api.
However, I got an error message:
IBM Watson
Exception: Unauthorized
Insert values failed.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Did you follow the instructions on the documentations page? There are several keys which can be created and some will not work for this connector.

Hi, Victor!

Different user here, similar problem. I’m getting:

IBM Watson
Exception: response not acceptable
Insert values failed.

I followed the instructions exactly. The values I copied to my clipboard for pasting into SEOTools were:

APIKey: Qgy … 7-7e5
BASE URL: https://gateway.watsonplatform.net/natural-language-understanding/api

(I elided the middle portion of my API key.)

I also noted that on the status page there was this …

5:42 PM INVESTIGATING: Discovery external connectivity down in US-south Discovery North America

5:42 PM INVESTIGATING: App Connect batch processing performing slowly App Connect North America, Asia Pacific

So, maybe it’s not me? Should I just be patient? I can’t seem to troubleshoot beyond this dialog box.

Update 7:00 PM (ET): As of 6:09 PM, the status page marks this disruption as “complete.” I still get the error, so I’m guessing that the cloud service problem was not the cause.

Hi,

It looks like your Base URL is wrong. It should be something like:
https://gateway-syd.watsonplatform.net/natural-language-understanding/api

Basically, the "gateway-syd" is what matters and and you chose the location when creating your app.

Then I guess the Natural Language Understanding API is not available to the Lite account, even under the 30-day free trial?

I created the service instance using the Dallas location, and I used that endpoint URL. I even tried all the other endpoint/location URLs in their list — None worked, though they returned slight variations on the error.

Oh well. :frowning:

I had high hopes to be able to play with entity extraction using this.

I believe this is the same issue as Gavagai. Email me and we'll setup a Teamviewer session.

Upgraded the connector with easy location selection instead of copying the entire base url:
