API Endpoint Proposal - Make new observations


#1

Once I get some feed back on this I will begin to make a merge request to implement it using the current code from the observation/new page as a base.

I believe it would be of best interest to lock down this api to only stations the user owns as automatically scheduling on other users stations seems to require adding in some permissions.

Any comments would be greatly liked…

That sounds like it covers everything we need. Besides the authorization checks it should check if the satellite is actually above the horizon.


#3

random note: this will have to be made through the API (as you have listed), once we roll out auth0/SSO next month, submissions coming in via observation/new will have to be made with a browser that can handle the auth cookies.
