I tried saying “Describe Yellowstone National Park”. Got an error to check my API setting. I seen that my API was NOT set yet again on your website, so I added it. NPS still did not work stating the exact same error, so I chose to get a new API. I set it to the new API on the web page and tried it again. Same error

Logs are also helpful. I don’t know how to attach a gz zipped file to this post


#2

For the logs, try pastebin.


#3

I tried to paste, but you meant something else. I will duckduckgo pastebin and try again.


#4

I need a way to upload a zip file, not copy and paste the logs as they are very long.


#5

you can paste the relevant sections of the logs, as that would be more useful.

Hey TrekJunky,

The easiest method to upload logs is to say “Hey Mycroft, create a support ticket”, but if this doesn’t work or you want to be more specific about the logs you provide you can run the following to upload a single file to termbin:
cat /var/log/mycroft/skills.log | nc termbin.com 9999
or if you want to upload all logs you can do a slightly longer:
for log in /var/log/mycroft/*.log; do echo "====$log====" | cat - $log | nc termbin.com 9999; done

The National Parks Skill got updated last week and this shouldn’t have cleared the API key from your settings but it seems to be a likely cause given the timing. I’ll check in with the backend team to see if they can shed any light on this.

I also noticed the NPS dev site has been down so there may be temporary issues connecting with their API.

Thanks. Keep me posted. The last time (A month ago) I tried to say “Hey Mycroft, create a support ticket” it didn’t email me. I will try it again today.
