    I am trying to create an integration from Freshdesk to Flowdock (using Freshdesk webhooks to start and eventually a plugin app) so I am testing the REST calls using curl from terminal. I have made some progress (able to list all flows) but having issue trying to post a message.

    Here is the curl command I am using (token redacted):


    curl eb...7112c@api.flowdock.com/flows/pubnub/support-team/messages" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://eb...7112c@api.flowdock.com/flows/pubnub/support-team/messages7112c@api.flowdock.com/flows/pubnub/support-team/messages -d '{"event":"message","content":"Howdy-Doo @Jackie #awesome"}'


    ... and I get this error message:


    {"message":"nil is not a supported event"}


    I just want to be able to post a message to a flow.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello pubnubcraig


    If you specify the data type being passed as JSON, that should work.


    curl https://eb...7112c@api.flowdock.com/flows/pubnub/support-team/messages7112c@api.flowdock.com/flows/pubnub/support-team/messages -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"event":"message","content":"Howdy-Doo @Jackie #awesome"}'

    Hope that helps.
