Hi List,

I'm attempting to upgrade my manifoldcf installation scripts from  v2.5 to v2.8.1 (bit of a jump, I know!).

Almost everything works, apart from the Json jobs/job access.  All other JSON API output seems to work as expected (all that I've tried, anyway).

Has anyone else experienced this?  If not, does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks for any help/advice!

Adrian
