This thread will track known issues and API caveats. This is not an indicator that things will be fixed.

Index Resources
There is a bug right now where any resource that ends with '/' won't work when authenticating unless you include 'index.html'.

For example this won't work when using authentication:
http://us.battle.net/api/wow/data/battlegroups/

This should:
http://us.battle.net/api/wow/data/battlegroups/index

The workaround should work even after the bug fix, so once we get this fixed either solution will work fine.
