  • 1.  REST Invoke API not working with linux cURL command

    Posted 05-11-2016 04:50 PM

    Hi All,

     

    I am trying to access DevTest REST Invoke API using curl command with default "admin" devtest user but always getting empty reply from server. Same thing is working with Postman REST client.

     

    Command : curl -H "Set-Cookie: locale=en; userName={\"state\":{\"USER_NAME\":\"s:admin\"}}" -H "Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -H "Content-Type: application/vnd.ca.lisaInvoke.virtualService+xml" -X GET http://localhost:1505/api/Dcm/VSEs/VSE

     

    Please suggest. Thanks.

    What operation are you trying to invoke using the REST API? Are you trying to get information on a particular running VSE? If so this is what should get you the result -

     

    curl -u admin:admin http://<host>:1505/api/Dcm/VSEs/Dev_VSE_1

     

    Let me know.

    Thanks Koustubh. I was trying to get information on a particular running VSE. I did what you said but still getting empty reply from server message.

    what exactly is your command output? Can you paste it here?

    The only time I get a blank command line output is when my username and/or password are wrong. Else you will get at least something from the server giving you the error details or the success message.

    Here is the curl command output -

    Same url is working from POSTMAN REST Client -

    Sorry this has to be specific to curl as the REST call is working fine on your machine.

    Hi Koustubh, Thanks for sharing a link. I am still facing issue with curl and wget utilities (Linux). Everything works fine with postman restclient tool (Windows). I am not sure whether its any header constraints at DevTest server.

    see my little scripts for deploymar (start/stop/remove) using curl..(on linux)... I never supply the authorization header myself.. I let curl do that.

    search here on deploymar
