We are trying to add camera manually through the NX Server API. Our process is the following:
1. first we do a /api/manualCamera/search call to search for the available cameras.
2. we copy the process_id from the result of /api/manualCamera/search into /api/manualCamera/status?uuid=process_id and the returning json obj tells us the information we need to add the third party camera.
3. Which we do by calling POST /api/manualCamera/add which returns statuscode 200 OK and error '0' but the newly added camera can't be seen when getting from /ec2/getCamerasEx or /ec2/getCameras, we can't see the added camera in the NX witness client either.
Added images from postman( generic request sending tool) to show the steps taken and the returned messages.
Why is the newly added camera missing, although we got the status 200 OK from the /api/manualCamera/add? Are we taking the right steps to add a manual camera? Also see attached images of the whole process.
3.) POST /api/manualCamera/add
