Getting below error.

Error: {"message":"Argument 2 passed to Piwik\Plugins\Feedback\API::sendFeedbackForFeature() must be of the type int, string given","file":"plugins\/Feedback\/API.php","line":38," "request_id":"d5fc2","backtrace":" on /plugins\/Feedback\/API.php(38)\n#0 [internal function]: Piwik\Plugins\Feedback\API->sendFeedbackForFeature('Help', 'index.php\/.', 'dislikeother', 'e')\

I noticed this API is enforcing specific types. I'm thinking in API's we should likely not make use of PHP types like (?string $featureName, int $like as it could cause issues like fatal errors when you actually want a regular error message response that the input is not correct.

Could we maybe remove those types there and in general document to not use any types there? We could maybe even have an automated test that checks that no API has specific parameters enforced.

It can be frustrating otherwise when consuming the API and all you get is an HTTP 500 and you don't know what you're doing wrong. Also we get emailed about it every time this happens which can be annoying too.

@peterhashair it'd be good to check if you can add or update any documentation to reflect @tsteur's suggestion of not typing API endpoints so this is clear in future as part of this task.

I mean adding a note to not use typed parameters, perhaps on this page https://developer.matomo.org/guides/apis

@justinvelluppillai right, ah how do I access that API site :)

There's an Edit on Github link at the bottom of the page
