Read/Write of saved fits now on Sisi!

CCP FoxFour | 2015-10-14 13:20 | Comments
HOLY BATMAN IT'S HAPPENING! I think... assuming this testing goes well it will happen. Right now you can go and create a CREST application for Sisi and request the scopes for fitting (characterFittingRead and characterFittingWrite). Upon requesting those scopes you can begin having people log into your site/application with those scopes at which point you should have authorization tokens that work for reading and writing saved fits. Here is how you go about using them. If you follow CREST links from the root to the fittings resource you should go along the path of root -> decode -> character -> fittings. Doing a GET on the character resource should get you results similar to the following: { "totalCount_str": "1", "items": [ { "description": "THIS IS A TEST ... read more

A note on CREST rate limits

CCP FoxFour | 2015-10-13 21:18 | Comments
Hey people, Just a heads up. The rate limit for public CREST was previously increased, and all the market details are available there. If you are currently scraping market details from authed CREST I would ask that you start doing it from public CREST instead. Public CREST should be faster and fail less often due to how we load balance the requests. Additionally, authed CREST will have its rate limit reduced in the next few weeks. Public CREST rate limit: 150 requests a second Authed CREST rate limit (to be implemented in a few weeks): 20 requests a second Any questions, let us know, CCP FoxFour read more

Image Server CDN changes

CCP FoxFour | 2015-07-21 15:29 | Comments
Hey people, Just a quick heads up about a change with the image server. We've previously had a CDN in front of the image server (, but it never supported HTTPS. Due to this we previously recommended that people use the origin image server ( as it supports HTTPS. We are currently in the process of changing CDN providers, and one of the results of this change is that we have a new CDN in front of the image server that supports HTTPS. We are therefore now recommending that everyone switch their image server links to use the following address: If you encounter any problems with this please let us know. CCP FoxFour read more

Aegis Sovereignty API Changes

CCP FoxFour | 2015-07-07 11:05 | Comments
With just under a week to go before the new Sovereignty system hits Tranquility it's probably time that we start getting you information on the APIs we will be deploying to support it. So without further rambling, here’s the details. Structures All of the new APIs are in CREST and the first resource to look at is the SovStructures resource. This lists every structure in New Eden that is contributing to sovereignty be it a TCU, IHub, or a station. This is completely public information that will be available from within the client and so we are also making available via public CREST to everyone. Here is how it looks in the client: Via the client you can show info on any solar system in the game to get details about the structures ... read more
