The new domain requires an application identification with a mandatory parameter 'username'. 

Could you update the documentation page for the Web Services, i.e. at least:
*, where the 'username' parameter is missing from the table describing the parameters (but it appears in the examples below the table)
*, where the 'username' parameter has to be added both into the table and into the examples.
*, where the 'username' parameter has to be added to the example URLs.

Thanks we have now hopefully updated all pages with the example link.

We will not add the general remark to each service doc. It is described in the main doc:
