Testing the crossTank API installation
As crossTank API does not need a separate installation but a special product key, you can test if everything is there after you got the licence.
- To test the installation you can do the following:
- Open a browser and browse to http://localhost/Across/CrossTank/Help.
This should display the Web API help page.
- Browse to http://localhost/Across/CrossTank/api/v1/$metadata.
This should show the meta data document which describes the data model exposed as HTTP endpoints by the service.
- Using a browser that is able to display JSON results directly, you can also perform a test with this simple URL, which will return first translation from your database: http://localhost/Across/CrossTank/api/v1/Translations(1).
Therefore ensure that there is a translation with ID=1 in the database.
