Inconsistency with WURFL API

I have this HTTP request, I expected this, but WURFL is returning that. Please provide enough data to reproduce the problem.

Inconsistency with WURFL API

Postby kvn.pavan » Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:51 am

For the user agent
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8537.25 ,

device.getVirtualCapability("is_robot") is returning true. However, when I see, device.getVirtualCapabilities() map and check for value of is_robot, its coming false.

Need help with this inconsistency. WURFL version used is 1.8.4.0

Hi Pavan,

The OnSite API doesn't have any sort of cache on our end. However, this issue will be addressed in the upcoming bug fix release v1.8.4.1, as well as our next weekly WURFL.xml snapshot.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi,

With 1.8.4.1, if I use "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone;CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25", its giving device.getVirtualCapability("is_robot") as false. If I use "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25", its giving true. The difference is just a space (" ") between iPhone; and CPU word in the user agent.. So its still inconsistent

Hi Pavan,

Thank you for letting us know. To clarify from my previous response to this question (via support@scientiamobile.com), we have updated our database to correct the issue with the is_robot capability for the provided UA. This change will be reflected in next week's WURFL.xml update.

Thanks,

Aaron

Seems like the xml update resolved the issue
