Are both Alfresco systems of the same version? Parts of the public ReST API are still being evolved and some operations/resources may not be available in all 5.2 versions (e.g. there were some additions in 5.2.1 - 5.2.3 Enterprise releases).

As Axel says ... can you please confirm the version of your remote server. Is it running <= ACS 5.1.x by any chance ?

Note: REST API to Create Node has been available since 5.2 (including 5.2.0 Enterprise).

That's probably it thanks for mentioning .... 

I wasn't sure how to check the version number. Just by comparing the login interface, it says 2005-2014 however, on local server says it says 2017.

I just have access to the servers front-end, how can I get the version number

If I go to the help under administration drop down it takes me the below link.

If you can login / sign-in  to Share then you should be able to click on the Share About box at the bottom of the page, eg.

Alternatively, if you're running ACS 5.2 (or higher) then you may also be able to access the following authenticated API:

https://hostname:port/alfresco/api/discovery

Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer  (click drop-down for Discovery API)

Oh I see.... thanks so much man.

BTW, the REST API Explorer don't show up on Chrome, I had to use FF for that.

No worries, I'm glad it helped.

As an aside: ACS 5.2.x provides the new public REST APIs and is also the baseline for future ADF-based applications. In short, ACS 5.2.x is the "best" release so far (well, at least until ACS 6.0.x goes GA in the next month or so) ... yes, I know, I'm biased.

So, this might be a great time to work with your Alfresco Enterprise sys admin to plan an upgrade from 5.0.0 to 5.2.3. I'm sure Alfresco Support will provide advice, as needed.
