"Not a valid URL format" when creating an app


#1

Hey all,

anyone else how faces the same problem when trying to registering an application via the Application Management. The system tells me that the callback URL has not a valid format, but it surely has.

I tried several different addresses with IP, port, fully quallified TLDs, with/without http, with/without www. I also reported it as an issue.

Can anybody help?

Okay, I just figured out that the problem refers to the Website URL and not to the Callback URL. This not really intuitive since the description also allows a placeholder.

If anybody faces the same problem just give a valid url like http://somthing.com as Website URL.
