We're integrating DataMiner with a third party system that will be pulling information from DataMiner using API V1, the third party prefers using http post instead of soap.
As per the help page help.dataminer.services the note at the bottom states a section needs uncommenting to get this working outside the local host, which I have done in my testing.
Is there any reason why this is disabled by default? and should I be pushing the third party to use soap instead of http post?
Thanks for pointing this out, this could be an outdated section in our documentation. I tried this on a remote server without uncommenting that section, and my SOAP requests (using the POST verb) still succeed.
Most DataMiner web applications are using the JSON API in the background, so I would recommend using the JSON API instead. See this page for more information.
