RingCentral not reachable for Fax - Recurrences are increasing

We are facing issues related to RC not being available for Fax API.


Following is one example:

Response: StatusCode: 404, ReasonPhrase: 'Not Found', Version: 1.1, Content: System.Net.Http.StreamContent, Headers: { Connection: keep-alive RCRequestId: a02bf940-ea3d-11e9-9b97-005056afc229 RoutingKey: SJC01P13PAS07 X-Rate-Limit-Group: medi


Here is another one:

The remote host closed the connection. The error code is 0x80070057.

I see that you have some successful fax API calls in the last 7 days. Isn't that you could send some faxes successfully?

I only see a few 404 responses from the get message-store and get content API calls. Can you double check to confirm this.

Yes, there were some 404 responses. We would like to know why? The data sent in the requests are all valid values. Please let us know the reason behind the 4xx errors.

What data? Can you post the content ID, the request you sent to the message-store or content API? Without seeing it, it is impossible for me to say why it failed.

Following is the fax request. RC responded with id1185180239028. However the request was set to sending failed. I have removed the data from "bytes" and "phoneNumber" field for readability and HIPAA requirements.


{

"attachments":

[

{

"fileName":"cover.htm"

,"bytes":""

,"contentType":"text/html"

}

,{

"fileName":"1.png"

,"bytes":""

,"contentType":"image/png"

}

]

,"faxResolution":"High"

,"to":[

{

"phoneNumber":"xxxxxx"

}

]

,"sendTime":null

,"isoCode":null

,"coverIndex":0

,"coverPageText":null

}
