I don't believe that that route accepts POST requests (as it's non-actionable), so you should have better luck sending a GET request instead. Routes that require auth tokens necessitate HTTPS, but still expect GET for read requests, and POST for writes.

This is not possible in api-2.2, but it might be made available in 2.3. Semi-source: I had an email exchange with someone from the android app team, who then talked to the api team. It's not on 2.2 but they're "open to moving it to the 2.3 API release".

Er… I’m sorry, but I don’t speak robot. I know enough about computers to get by, more than most civilians, but I was wondering if you could dumb the answer to my problem a lot for me please? The SENotifier for OX was working perfectly until today, when I took my computer away from my house, and wifi. I’m not sure if disconnecting from the internet had ...

Update: Op followed the advice, below, and changed the question from a bug to a feature-request. This is not really a bug. Right at the top of the API documentation, it states that the API is read-only, in bold letters: Stack Exchange API v2.0 This is the documentation for the v2.0 read-only (with optional authentication) Stack Exchange API. If ...

You should use /inbox instead, which is a network route instead of a site-specific one. As mentioned in the documentation, the site-specific route is mostly just provided for convenience of consumers working in a single-site context. Even then it doesn't seem particularly useful, but meh. To answer your question in regards to why site is required there, it'...

The documentation was updated sometime in the last 2 years and the API docs (version 2.2) now state that the property may be absent:

An inbox message body is not the same as a post body. Inbox messages are truncated by design. Here's a snippet of my inbox: Notice how the "body" is truncated at 100 characters? (Counting the ... and accounting for HTML entities like '.) The results I get from /2.2/me/inbox?filter=!SmOhH2b13NujlyyXX6 are exactly the same: "body": "Very good....

Provided you don't do anything "evil" (which basically means leaking user messages to people/apps they haven't authorized), we have no objections to a generic push service. Yes, the per-minute throttle is for the same request; changing the parameters counts as separate requests. Do note that the 30 requests/second cutoff is by IP (it's a DOS prevention ...

There is no difference and... The inbox has always been "The global inbox". Certainly for as long as the API has existed. So any inbox route will be Stack Exchange wide, even if it accepts a site parameter. If you look at the doc for the /users/{id}/inbox/unread route, it says: This method is effectively an alias for /inbox/unread. It is provided for ...

Yes, you do. The only way to get access token is via authentication, and you need a registered application for that. What you don't need is a public post here to announce your application; that is only required for write access. Just fill in the form here.

You can – sometimes. The default filter contains a question_id field, and according to the examples for the inbox_item type (you have to scroll down a bit) it is filled in some situations. I just tested it and the notification for this comment looks like this: It should be populated for the new_answer type as well, but I couldn't test this quickly. It is ...

1) Answer is already in the inbox_item object. Note the entry for item_type in the doc page: one of comment, chat_message, new_answer, careers_message, careers_invitations, meta_question, post_notice, or moderator_message new_answer is returned whenever a new answer is posted to one of the authenticated user's questions. 2) edit_suggested is returned as ...

bug The Follow Questions and Answers feature is now live across the Network. This allows users to get notifications about any activity on a question when they follow it. However, this extension does not work properly with the new feature. The extension successfully notifies the user when they have a notification from a followed question, but fails to ...

I'm probably talking to myself here since it appears nobody except me has been on this page in years, but I figured I should mention that (contrary to my previous comment) the add-in still works just fine, and I've been using the Firefox version daily (minutely?!) for months without issue. If the developer(s) were around, I'd have a couple minor feature ...

As described in the /me/inbox documentation, the route is ...effectively an alias for /inbox. It is provided for consumers who make strong assumptions about operating within the context of a single site rather than the Stack Exchange network as a whole. Since it's just more or less a convenience route for the global /inbox method, it doesn't actual ...

feature-request I'd like to request that the app detects when night mode is enabled under general system preferences and switches the icon to a white color. This is what the icon currently looks like: ... too dark. :( I also created issue #26, on GitHub, for this.

Version 1.3 Update I have updated all the icons to make it look much better. You can check out the source code and download the DMG here: https://github.com/josephyoon/senotifier

I have forked your source code, and enabled Retina display support. I have also recreated all the icons. Check it out on GitHub.
