Hi, I am new to Chirpstack. I have visited several places for solution, including some posts on this forum.
I am sending a post request to my localhost:8080, via python script. But it showed an error “device must not be nil”.
I inserted the same parameters in the api web interface and successfully added a device. I logged into the webUI and the newly added device was there.
I checked the error, device can not be nil on github repo, and it only said that the variables have some problem, but not specifying which. But I think the parameters are ok since I have successfully sent many get requests.
I found online that that there might be some problem with python sending a json request with true/false, since the bool values are True/False in python rather than true/false. On sending Rest API POST request through python, some internet articles suggested that I should jam the parts involved with Boolean value into a single string. I tried this method but the same error showed up.
I used GET in some other functions and they were ok so I think it is the problem of that dictionary (or json). I noticed that there aren’t much information on using the python to communicate with chirpstack.
I am thinking about 2 ways to get out of this. One is to learn golang, which is new to me and can possibly solve the issue, and the other is using the python SDK. I can not be the first one to come across the problem, I guess. Thanks in advance.
