  • Setup - Autoremote wrong URL format?

    I've just puchased and installed the Tasker Plugin, but I'm having problems entering/pasting the Autoremote-URL.
    The plugin wants me to enter a goo.gl URL like this:

    {"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"snip2.JPG","data-attachmentid":1296581}
    However, the URL I'm getting from Autoremote no longer starts with http://goo.gl/, but looks like this:

    https://autoremote.joaoapps.com/.....secretkeyhere....

    And if I try to paste this URL, I get the error "Autoremote URL is misspelled."

    {"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"snip4.JPG","data-attachmentid":1296583}

    ...And I'm stuck.
    I'm guessing this has something to do with Google closing the goo.gl service.

    I'm grateful for any pointers to how I can solve this and finish my setup.

    The one you get in Autoremote is the wright one!
    Just enter it for you device in HomeSeer Tasker settings. ====> http://goo.gl/xxxxxx

    Tip : Click on the three dots on the right of Autoremote screen and start from there.

      (What happened to the images in my post??)

      Anyway: Thanks, but the problem is that the Autoremote URL's aren't starting with "http://goo.gl" anymore, but "https://autoremote.joaoapps.com/".
      And therefore, the Tasker plugin doesn't accept the URL as it seems to expect a goo.gl based URL.

      This is my Autoremote screen where I'm getting my URL from (the URL that I'm supposed to enter in the Tasker plugin setup):

        Hei Husmann, it looks like autoremote developer have done some changes. I still have the goo.gl format in my app. Running latest autoremote.
        Could you maybe try and paste the key without https://goo.gl/

          You might want to talk to the developer of Tasker and AutoRemote directly.

          https://joaoapps.com/

          I beleive he also monitors the Reddit tasker group.

            Thanks tonlof,

            I tried pasting the key only, but I'm afraid I get the same error:
            "Autoremote URL is misspelled."

            aa6vh, I think this particular error has to be resolved by the Tasker plugin developer (tonlof).

              I bumped into this today as well -- can that URL validation rule just be removed? (maybe just substitute a url verification by the plugin once it's entered by the user to make sure it's not a 404?)

                Hi, it not that easy. Autoremote developer added a new server for new devices. Old ID still communicate with old server so they have different structure. I'm working on a beta that handle both versions depending of the ID.

                  I asked the developer of Autoremote if it was possible to migrate the old keys to the new server but it was not possible so I'm working on a workarround.

                      The plugin fails to download even when turned off in the Updater!

                        Hi Eman, do you see any error in the log?
                        I tried on a second computer: Install/Update of package Tasker was successful.

                          Do I have to delete something first? I will check again later.

                            A new setback, I manage to get a new autoremote ID to play with but unfortunately the new url/server of autoremote.joaoapps.com does not return a valid SSL/TLS connection when redirecting to http://autoremotejoaomgcd.appspot.com/?key=
                            This makes it very hard for the plugin to translate the short ID into the long API key. The old goo.gl server still works but only with the old ID's.
                            I have mention this to the developer of autoremote but until then and if there is a fix I don't see any solution unfortunately.
                            My only backup plan for now is that I add a textbox where you can paste the long API instead of the short ID. It's little more work on user side

                              Beta 3.0.5.2 in updater, meanwhile autoremote.joaoapps.com urlshortener fails with proper certificates I did a workarround and ignore these errors. The small potential risk when converting ID to API key could be that the key is not sent over a validated certificate. This affects only a onetime call for a new unit. Don't forget to put your own personal password in autoremote and in the HS plugin. However, all sending of messages is sent over an approved crypted connection.
