setAlert channels Tcl-style string arguments not working


In biting my teeth trying to set an alert and i seem to not be able to set the channels argument.

Here is an example url im using: … &channels={16 e_filed e_departure e_arrival e_diverted e_cancelled}

URL encoded: … ncelled%7D

error = “UNCONNECTED: channel_id is not connected: 16”;

Can anyone help me understand the exact format for the channels argument?



Did you already register your alert end point per … rtEndpoint


I did now and it works!!
Sorry for the confusion but i didnt know one must register endpoint before… Might be worth mentioning in the documentation!!
