I'm using the REST API in Team City 6.5 to request a backup is created as follows:
as specified in the documentation here:http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/TW/REST+API+Plugin#RESTAPIPlugin-DataBackup
I've tried calling the api from both a C# application and from browsers, both locally on the server and from my machine. The problem is that it simply returns "idle", as does the backup status call and but no backup appears. I can backup fine from the web interface and I can return a list of users from the REST API without issue. The logs are empty also, other than for instances when I've intentionally used an incorrect url. I'm on a domain but the team city machine is not on the same domain.
I'm starting to suspect I'm missing something obvious but I can't find it.
