HTTP REST API - I can't get the value from a PIN

Hi! Hope you’re having an awesome day.
I’ve been try to make requests to the REST API you guys have running on, I can use the isHardwareConnected and isAppConnected endpoints, but if i try to read or update a PIN value it simply won’t return a reply.

I feel like i’m doing something wrong, I’ve been looking for a solution for the past 6 hours with no answer in sight. I might be overthinking (which i do a lot), but I feel it’s something else.

Thank you in advance.

What commands are you sending to read and update PIN values and what responses are you getting?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I’m using the one that’s in the API reference:

I get a 404 response every single time i request a pin status or try to update.

@Jose_M_Viloria this API is not yet deployed to blynk cloud as it was released few days ago. In few days it will be available.

Ohh, sorry… I didn’t know about that!
Thanks for the info.

Have a nice day, enjoying every single second i use the app!

Sorry for jumping on this thread, but I have a somewhat related problem.

For the past few hours, I have been trying to use the Aviary interface to change the auth_token on-the-spot to test out the API, without doing any coding first. But I keep getting error 404, saying I have an invalid token.

But I know my token is valid, as it is working in my Python file and I managed to get a Button widget value with it.

Read Dmitry’s post that the API is not yet deployed to Blynk Cloud, is that the reason why I keep getting the error?

What is the interim API call we should make before the latest API is released to Blynk Cloud then? When will it be released? Thank you! :slight_smile:

Old API is


and body ["1"].

However my recommendation would be to wait few days.
