REST server not working for Service Desk Manager


Article ID: 238529


Updated On:


CA Service Management - Service Desk Manager


REST API not working on Service Desk Manager 17.3.  Users may experience an error such as:

"The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists."

Postman shows: HTTP Status 404 - Not Found


Release : 17.3

Component :  CA Service Desk Manager REST Web Services


Discovered that caisd-rest.war was missing from Service Desk Manager\bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE_REST\webapps - it was suspected that it had been deleted by accident.


To repair it, copy caisd-rest.war.bck from Service Desk Manager\site\rest to the Service Desk Manager\bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE_REST\webapps folder, rename it to caisd-rest.war, then run:

pdm_tomcat_nxd -c stop -t REST

pdm_tomcat_nxd -c start -t REST

to redeploy.

After this, the REST application calls are working again.
