Eliminating API Errors with Froomle Integration

Integrating Froomle into your applications can occasionally lead to encountering API errors. However, several methods can aid in identifying, debugging, and ultimately resolving these issues, ensuring a smooth Froomle integration. The methods discussed below will equip you with the tools and insights you need:

Browser-Based Integration Debugging

For web-based applications, browser developer tools can be invaluable:

  • Detailed network request logs, including Froomle API calls, are available in the console.

  • Any API failures will be logged with specific error messages, pointing towards potential issues like incorrect request formatting or misuse of Froomle API endpoints.

Debugging Non-Browser Applications

Applications outside the browser environment require meticulous error handling:

  • It’s essential to manage exceptions when the Froomle API doesn’t return a 200 status code.

  • Always log error responses for inspection.

Our Kotlin integration example provides a code snippet illustrating this:

if (httpResponse.statusCode() >= 300) {
	throw Exception("Unexpected ${httpResponse.statusCode()}:${httpResponse.body()}")

Harnessing the Froomle Portal for Debugging

The Froomle portal presents a comprehensive snapshot of API errors from all integrations. Although this is advantageous, distinguishing errors from diverse integrations might be intricate. To enhance accuracy, it’s recommended to merge this approach with other debugging techniques.

Error Timestamps: Every API error is accompanied by a UTC timestamp. By strategically testing your applications at different times, you can correlate these timestamps to specific application instances.

With these insights and tactics at your disposal, you’re well-prepared to diagnose and rectify any API challenges during your Froomle integration.
