Description kde-bugs 2016-06-26 17:35:38 UTC
Updating an entry with Amazon(US) as data-source no longer works.
I have my personal Access and Secret key (entered into 'Settings'->'Configure Tellico'->'data-sources'
Associate-ID=tellico-20 (changing this to my personal AWS-ID does not work either)
Updating an entry (only ISBN-nr entered and using update to complete) or using search with Amazon Web Services as data source no longer returns a result.
This is the return I got from AWS (using wireshark):
<ItemSearchErrorResponse><Error><Code>AWS.InvalidAssociate</Code><Message>Your <my personal Access Key> is not registered as an Amazon Associate. Please register as an associate at https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join/landing/main.html.</Message></Error><RequestId>f3c2c9d6-d721-4137-a1b5-9bb970ab7211</RequestId></ItemSearchErrorResponse>

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. search source: Amazon(US)
2. Select 'Title'
3. Search Query: "Steve Jobs"

Actual Results:  
The search returned no items.

Ubuntu: 16.04
Tellico: 2.3.9
KDE: 4.14.16

Is this problem persisting? I'm not aware that Amazon has separated API access from Associate accounts. Have you tried completing that link as an Amazon Associate? It's possible that Amazon has changed access rules.

Show dialog box for Amazon Associate error

Amazon has changed the terms of use for their API, requiring an
Associate account for searching with the API.
