This article explains common troubleshooting steps to take when creating a generic integration.
Step 1: Confirm local HTML behavior
Each of the GeniusLink integration samples has a plain HTML file, configured to use success.mindtouch.com as the endpoint. Change the settings to your MindTouch site and confirm the widget behavior when stored as a regular HTML file running from your local computer. If there are problems accessing the API from local HTML files, contact MindTouch Support.
Step 2: Confirm AJAX requests inside the CRM/CEM
After adding the HTML to the CRM/CEM, confirm AJAX requests are firing correctly. In Chrome, open Developer Tools and switch to the Network tab. Then attempt to use the widget, such as issuing a search:
In this case, we see the request to the query API, with a 200 OK returned. Ensure there are no issues here, such as a certificate that needs to be accepted. (Some trial sites may not have certificates setup, and are using self-signed certs that must be accepted.)
Otherwise, AJAX issues from requests originating within an external CRM/CEM must be resolved by their support team.
j$variable to avoid conflicts, but you may need to find/replace this with another variable to ensure compatibility.)
- If the CRM/CEM requires AJAX requests to use their proxy, you may need to change the existing API calls that use
j$.ajax()to use the new function instead.
