I’m facing some problems trying to implement a REST API in our project.
The problem boils down to proper routing. I’ve created an api module under modules/. Extended the CUrlManager class to use different parameters like the urlFormat to ‘path’ ‘enableCsrfValidation’=>false, etc.
Yet I can’t seem to get the following routes to work:
GET api/survey/<id> DELETE api/survey/<id> PUT api/survey/<id>
I need these routes which are the same other than the HTTP method. It is not desirable to have a “catch all” method to conditionally route them within the controller. I’ve tried setting them like this with no success:
['<controller>/get.', 'pattern'=>'api/<controller:\w+>/<id:\w*>', 'verb'=>'GET'], ['<controller>/delete', 'pattern'=>'api/<controller:\w+>/<id:\w*>', 'verb'=>'DELETE'], ['<controller>/update', 'pattern'=>'api/<controller:\w+>/<id:\w*>', 'verb'=>'UPDATE'],
But it is not working, independently of the HTTP verb. The error suggests Yii believes the parameter to be the “action” sighs . If I call api/survey/1 this is what I get.
I have checked that Yii does not handle OPTIONS verb / http method, so what would be the proper way to handle CORS pre-flight? I sense I will have to hack the framework to have it working :\
Thank you in advance, I welcome any help.
