I wonder if someone could help me troubleshoot my Google Address Lookup. It looks like it should work, but it's not returning any results.
My form shows the search icon but doesn't return any results.
Are you trying to test the lookup while in Maestro? That will not work, it needs to be tested from TM.
I'm testing in TM.
A couple of things you can check are that you have the input and response field mappings set up. If this looks ok I would next check the request headers and response in the Network tab of your Dev tools (Chrome). This will tell you what you are submitting to the service and whether you are getting a response or not.
We discovered in the meantime that the call from TM to Google is blocked by our F5.
I don't suppose anyone knows if Is there a way we can call on google directly without having to use the dynamic service in TM?
Creating Maestro Native Components
Thanks, this is really useful. The opinion in our team is that the JS API would be more efficient anyway. Unless there are reasons why the default component was implemented this way that we cannot think of?
My understanding is that the server calls make it easier to track and respond to service issues with logging etc, additionally it prevents having to store credentials on the client. That said the google maps calls are all JS and work perfectly. It will come down to what you need to pass to the API and how much fidelity you need around service issues.
Hope this helps.
We'll request for the firewall to be edited and then we'll see where we go from there once we got that working. Our server cannot take that much load, so we are always conscious of how adding additional server calls may affect this.
Thanks for your help.
