Is there still no API to remove classifieds?

Was looking at https://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/topic/50834-api-to-remove-listings/

 

Just to recap on fiskie's response a year ago:

GET /api/classifieds/v1/_search (same parameters as regular classifieds web client search) //https://backpack.tf/api/docs/classifieds_search

POST /api/classifieds/v1/_pulse (supersedes the Automatic heartbeat, lets everyone know you're "alive", bumps all listings, etc) //We still have to do this with heartbeat https://backpack.tf/api/docs/auxiliary

PUT /api/classifieds/v1/listing (item body or item id depending on intent, sell order or buy order) //https://backpack.tf/api/docs/create_listings

GET /api/classifieds/v1/listing/{id} //We don't have a way to get a specific listing. We have to do https://backpack.tf/api/docs/my_listings then parse the response which is fine.

DELETE /api/classifieds/v1/listing/{id} //This functionality is completely missing and cannot be done through the provided API. 

 

Fiskie pls

were you guys able to get it to work?

		var data = JSON.stringify({listing_ids : [{id : "440_6013671119"}, {id : "440_5989064097"}]});
        request.delete('https://backpack.tf/api/classifieds/delete/v1?key=MYKEYGETUROWN',{
            body : data
        },function(err,response,body){
            if(err)
                console.log(err);
            else{
                var data = JSON.parse(response.body);
                console.log(data);
            }
                
        });

This is my response that I get.
{ deleted: 0, errors: [] }
Am I missing something? If you have gotten it to work please share. Maybe the listing id's are invalid? idk.

	var data = JSON.stringify({listing_ids : [{id : '440_6013671119'}, {id : '440_5989064097'}]});
        request.delete('https://backpack.tf/api/classifieds/delete/v1?key=MYKEYGETUROWN',{
            headers : {"Content-Type": "application/json"},
            body : data
        },function(err,response,body){
            if(err)
                console.log(err);
            else{
                var data = JSON.parse(response.body);
                console.log(data);
            }
                
        });

Added headers now the response is:

{ deleted: 0,
  errors:
   [ { listing_id: [Object],
       message: 'This listing does not exist.' },
     { listing_id: [Object],
       message: 'This listing does not exist.' } ] }

It seems to require cookies:

 

var request = require('request');

var headers = {
	'content-type': 'application/json',
};

var data= '{"listing_ids": [ "440_5730888796", "440_5739645534" ] }';

var options = {
    url: 'https://backpack.tf/api/classifieds/delete/v1?key=MUHKEY',
    method: 'DELETE',
    headers: headers,
    body: data
};

function callback(error, response, body) {
    if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
        console.log(body);
    }
    else{
        console.log(error);
        console.log(body);
    }
}

request(options, callback);

This returns {"deleted":0,"errors":[{"listing_id":"440_5730888796","message":"This listing does not belong to you."},{"listing_id":"440_5739645534","message":"This listing does not exist."}]}

 

Also the JSON you were posting was incorrectly formatted, listing_ids needs to be in quotes and there are no sub-names.

 

EDIT: It works if you fake the cookies, but this takes away the entire point of having an API in the first place.

FML, just spent a few hours when I finally realized the problem. 

You HAVE to use

https://backpack.tf/api/classifieds/delete/v1?token=yourtoken

The TOKEN is https://backpack.tf/settings##advanced NOT https://backpack.tf/api/register

 

Just to put it all together, this works:

var request = require('request');

var headers = {
	'content-type': 'application/json',
};

var data= '{"listing_ids": [ "440_5730888796", "440_5739645534" ] }';

var options = {
    url: 'https://backpack.tf/api/classifieds/delete/v1?token=yourTOKENonhttps://backpack.tf/settings',
    method: 'DELETE',
    headers: headers,
    body: data
};

function callback(error, response, body) {
    if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
        console.log(body);
    }
    else{
        console.log(error);
        console.log(body);
    }
}

request(options, callback);

I completely forgot there was a difference between token and api key. fuckity fuck fuck

            body : data

                console.log(data);
            }
                
        });

Thanks Axle Change, the above code is tested to work now.

Response I get back { deleted: 2, errors: [] };

Also to get ur token use this url : https://backpack.tf/settings##advanced
