link submission API call doesnt appear to be working.

When I submit a URL for analysis via Wildfire Public API.  

curl -F 'apikey=myapikeyenteredhere' -F 'link=' ''


I get a http status code of 200 and receive the submit link info (md5  & sha256).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


However when i go to get the verdict or the analysis report using the either the md5 or the sha256, i receive a -102 verdict (unknown, or cannot find sample in database) . 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


I also dont see the submission on my wildfire dashboard. I have tried with various URLs, using curl and through scripts; with the same result.  Using the wildfire dashboard, the link was able to be submitted successfully.

Same here.


Submitting a link goes fine, but the resulting verdict always gave a -102.


I’m sure the submission was successful, because in the wildfire dashboard I can see the ‘daily uploads remaining’ decreasing. (I also don’t see the submission itself)


Also tried submitting an URL instead of a link, to submit the test file. (, which runs fine. I was able to retrieve a correct verdict of 1.


At this moment I’m not sure what submitting a link should do. What is wildfire going to do with the link submitted?

As the documentation state’s: “The submit/link resource should not be confused with the submit/url resource. Use the submit/link resource for a website, but use /submit/url for files hosted on a website.”
