Hello world! Weather API Support Forum - Ask your questions! We're here to help!
Hello, I am attempting to use weatherbit.io weather data in my iOS app. When I login, I am shown my api key, but in all my testing I am being given an error that says, api key is not valid or not yet activated. Was there something I was suppose to do in order to activate my key? I did get an email saying it had been provisioned, so I thought I was good to go. I even tried testing in the browser instead of the app and got the same error message. Here is the url I constructed:
http://api.weatherbit.io/v1.0?key=(my api key here)/forecast/3hourly/geosearch?city=London&country=UK
This search was an example in the documentation. I just added my key as a parameter. Is anything besides the api key also required?
Your API key is active, and working.
Unfortunately, The URL you provided is not valid. http://api.weatherbit.io/v1.0/forecast/3hourly/geosearch?key=(api_key)&city=London&country=UK is the correct usage
