using Release Definition REST API for VSTS

0 votes

I've been using release definition API on update 3 of TFS 2015 using API version 3.0-preview1 on a prem instance. But since I've started testing on VSTS, I'm getting 404 not found error saying:

Page not found And a long block of HTML.

I'm using powershell to call API which I created using Personal Access Token and alternate credential method: https://fabfiber.vsrm.visualstudio.com/DefaultCollection/ff213d65-d61d-447c-b39d-d16f21b18364/_apis/release/definitions?api-version=3.0-preview.1

Can someone let me know if I am missing something.

Am I doing something wrong here? Any help please.

Try using this:

$vstsAccount = "[your vsts name]"
$user = "test"
$accessToken="[personal access token]"
$teamProject="[team project name]"
Function QueryWorkItem{
$base64AuthInfo = [Convert]::ToBase64String([Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes(("{0}:{1}" -f $user,$accessToken)))
 $uri="https://$vstsAccount.vsrm.visualstudio.com/defaultcollection/$teamProject/_apis/release/definitions?api-version=3.0-preview.1"
$result = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $uri -Method Get -Headers @{Authorization=("Basic {0}" -f $base64AuthInfo)}
}
