I’m trying to migrate 100 or so messages from another discussion tool experiment to our newish Discourse install (which folks are generally much happier with – thanks!). I can use the
discourse_api gem to connect to the install and successfully pull down things like recent posts and a list of users, but any attempts to create a topic or a post fail in a way that I can’t make sense of.
There’s no error returned or any indication of failure; I just get the 50 latest posts back with no other info, and my new topic/post never appears. Has anyone else had this experience? Am I just doing something silly? Is there some way (in Ruby, via the gem) to get the error message that I assume is getting swallowed somewhere along the way?
Many thanks in advance.
