I am currently trying to access an API and import data into our FileMaker solution. The groundwork has been laid thansk to the Base Elements plugin and Dan Smith's JSON framework but I am hitting a wall here...
Single / small requests are being processed properly, I get the expected response / data back from the API and thus have to assume that the surrounding parameters are OK.
But upon initiating a rather large request the result is insufficient (not empty though). The whole process is ran via a simple script, I'll outline the steps below.
I have already
- verified that the request is working correctly (via a runscope.com-trial, their free tool hurl.it throws a timeout error though!)
- tried pausing my script for 60 seconds after making the call (no use)
- setting a high timelimit for cURL (default is infinite, so not very helpful I guess) and setting "TCP KeepAlive" to true
What can I do to wait for the response to fully go through (even if it takes > 1 minute)?
The script steps outlined:
Thanks for your input / considerations!
