TA-Webtools - Why am I getting the error CURL invalid json in request?

Hello,

I'm trying to run the following:

 

| makeresults count=1

| eval data = "{\"something\":\"something\",\"something\":\"something\",\"something\":\"something\"}"

| eval header = "{\"header-api-key\":\"something\"}"

| curl  method=post  uri="https://api.something/v2" headerfield=header  data=data debug=t verifyssl=false

| table  *

 

and I'm getting

"{"status": "error", "result": "Invalid json format in the request".

Also I tried to add

"{\"content-type\":\"application/json\"}" like :

 

| eval header = "{"{\"content-type\":\"application/json\"}",\"header-api-key\":\"something\"}"

 

but I get the some error. Note that I have the latest version of TA-webtools

Anyone has any suggestions? 

Thank in advance

Try datafield=data

 

| curl  method=post  uri="https://api.something/v2" headerfield=header  datafield=data debug=t verifyssl=false

I've used nearly identical settings and it works.

 

If you hit same endpoint using the actual curl CLI tool do you see the same issue?

Thank for your reply gjanders.

I don't have any error with the actual curl. The response is in a json format.

Find below the actual curl:

curl -X POST -d @option.txt -k -H "header-api-key:<API KEY>" "https://api.something/v2"

 

option.txt file:

{

"something": "something",

"something": "something",

"something": "something"

}
