When I try to call http://server.domain/redmine/projects/1/issue_categories.json?key=my_key the answer is Page Not Found 404

The Log contains this:

But if I try to call any other REST API functions everything works perfect:

Example http://server.domain/redmine/projects/1/issues.json?key=my_key returns with all issues from project id=1

I have tried the users API as well it worked.

I have tried also with other versions (2.3-stable, 2.4-stable, 2.5-stable and 2.6-stable) the situation is exatle the same.

I have installed everything with SVN checkout and the suggested building procedure.
All of the functionality in redmine works perfect only this REST_API is not available.

Why is it important? Because I have started to use the redmineNB plugin for netbeans and it gives me also the page not found message of course and there is no category info of course. First I was thinking a plugin bug but when I called the REST API manually I have realized that Page Not found answer is real.

I have checked also the rake route definitions and it gave me good result.

$ bundle exec rake routes | grep categories
Your FCGI gem does not contain the FCGI shared library, running pure ruby instead
project_issue_categories GET /projects/:project_id/issue_categories(.:format) issue_categories#index
POST /projects/:project_id/issue_categories(.:format) issue_categories#create
new_project_issue_category GET /projects/:project_id/issue_categories/new(.:format) issue_categories#new
edit_issue_category GET /issue_categories/:id/edit(.:format) issue_categories#edit
issue_category GET /issue_categories/:id(.:format) issue_categories#show
PUT /issue_categories/:id(.:format) issue_categories#update
DELETE /issue_categories/:id(.:format) issue_categories#destroy

My environment is:

Redmine version 2.5.3.stable.13899
Ruby version 2.0.0-p0 (2013-02-24) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version 3.2.19
Environment production
Database adapter Mysql2
Subversion 1.6.9
Redmine plugins:
redmine_helpdesk 0.0.12
redmine_wiki_unc 0.0.3
scrum 0.7.0

Do you have any ideas what could be wrong with it?
Thx. for your help

Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 8 years ago

The route is properly defined:

project_issue_categories GET /projects/:project_id/issue_categories(.:format) issue_categories#index

What is the /service part at the beginning of the URL that the application sees ?

I have installed redmine in SUB_URI environment under the server and I am using FCGI.
I am using /redmine /service and /projekt for this for different purposes.

So when I call http://server.domain/service/projects/1/issues.json?key=my_key or http://server.domain/projekt/projects/1/issues.json?key=my_key I got the same issue.

The interesting thing that only the issue_categories API is not working all of the others are good.

Perhaps one more thing could be important as well:

In condig/environmen.rb I add of course this:

RedmineApp::Application.routes.default_scope = {
:shallow_path => ENV['RAILS_RELATIVE_URL_ROOT']


The ENV values comes from the proper FCGI startup. So it works.

If I want to summarize the situation as simple as I can:

This URL http://server.domain/service/projects/1/issues.json?key=my_key works.
It means returns with the proper json result.

And this URL http://server.domain/service/projects/1/issue_categories.json?key=my_key does not work.
It results 404 Page Not found message.
