[CREST] Where is kill board info?

I've been working with the CREST API a bit, and it seems a lot of information is not (yet?) available.

I made a new application requiring access to character killmails. SSO login, authentication, GET request to all went fine.

I don't see the information from character killboard though. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

The Kill mails aren't available as a list through CREST. The crest kill mail api is able to pull specific kills, if you have the ID.

What you can do, is use the appropriate scope to use the XML api with your access token, to get a kill list.

Woo! CSM XI!

Thanks for the confirmation. I've tried pulling the data from the XML, but I'm a little lost.

This is the output I'm getting:

Kill Mails: OK
DEBUG KillMails = ' 2016-08-15 00:56:59 2016-08-15 01:23:59 '

Using a browser, I see the page load, display the two time stamps, then change to the XML info. Could anyone elaborate on how to get the XML data directly, or what exactly is happening, so I can get my app to work with the response.

It's call XML Api for a reason Blink. You'll need one of the existing third party XML libraries to work with it. You should be able to find one if you are using any of the common web server side languages. Most of them have their own thread here in the tech forums.

Killmails are also referenced from the wars endpoint, btw.
