SetAlert creating alerts for "Any Flight"


#1

Hi,

I’m creating an alert with the REST request below providing the carrier, flight number, origin, and destination city pairs. I would expect to see the alert created for the that flight only but it is creating the alert for “Any flight (KLGA → KMEM)” per the FlightAware web site. What am I doing wrong?

flightxml.flightaware.com/json/ … &channels={16 e_departure e_arrival e_diverted e_cancelled}&max_weekly=1000

Thanks in advance.

Looks like there is a typo on the ident field. You have identy=DAL5117 and it should be ident=DAL5117.

I tested and this url works:



http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/SetAlert?ident=DAL5117&origin=LGA&destination=MEM&date_start=1497367740&date_end=1497367740&channels={16 e_departure e_arrival e_diverted e_cancelled}&max_weekly=1000

Of course it was a typo. Thanks!
