This is getting frustrating. The astra database works, but I still get the 404 page not found error

This url on the document API doesn't look right curl --request POST \

--url https://$ASTRA_DB_ID-$ASTRA_DB_REGION.apps.astra.datastax.com/api/rest/v1/auth \

--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \

--data '{

"username":"'$ASTRA_DB_USERNAME'", "password":"'$ASTRA_DB_PASSWORD'"}'

[2:41 PM]

The URL that works starts https://astra.datastax.com/org/816cb492-2fc6-435a-9d73-e12cd3cd818c/database ........

@francisdomoney@aol.com , I tested the same scenario step at https://www.datastax.com/dev/graphql#introduction and faced no issues.

I tested scenario the step 2 of 6, Creating a table with the GraphQL API and attached the output here for you to see for yourself. If you continue to have errors, can you provide detailed steps (URL of the scenario, Step details, command details and output screenshots/console output text attachment, etc,) as to where you get the errors for us to better understand the issue?

OK problem solved. I was using an old database from July 2020. Deleting it and reestablishing it solved the problem

Try removing the `| jq` from the end of the command to see the error message. `jq` is a json beautifier. The command appears to be returning an error that is not json - this is what the current error indicates. By removing the `jq`, you will be able to see the message, which should help.

Thanks

That lets me see that the error is 404 page not found

so looking for URL of missing page https://538f8fdc-1f23-4f53-8e20-80db9b243416-europe-west1.apps.astra.datastax.com/


The link given on the Astra database doesn't seem to work either.

Launching Swagger UI

Visualize and interact with your database’s REST API directly from your web browser with Swagger UI: https://538f8fdc-1f23-4f53-8e20-80db9b243416-europe-west1.apps.astra.datastax.com/api/rest/swagger-ui/

It sounds like Astra might be a bit confused. Is it possible to create a different Astra database and use that?

I've confirmed with the Astra Engineering team that the cause of the problem is that old free-tier instances don't support new features such as the Document API.

Free-tier instances are not automatically upgraded to newer releases since they are designed for proof-of-concept work which allows developers to trial Astra.

New features and updates are constantly being released so we recommend launching a new instance when trying things out on Astra. Cheers!
