Why are we getting Error "JSON in the request is invalid" while updating KV lookup from python code?

This is the code 


import requests
import datetime


now = datetime.datetime.now()

# print(now)
data = {'ticket_id':'CH-12345','response_code':200,'service':'Ec2','problem_type':'server_down','time':now}

headers = {
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
}
response = requests.post('https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/TA-cherwell-data-pull/storage/collections/data/cherwell_dat...' ,headers=headers ,data=data, verify=False , auth=('admin' , 'changeme'))


print(response.text) 

This is the error I am getting 

<msg type="ERROR">JSON in the request is invalid. (
JSON parse error at offset 1 of file "ticket_id=CH-12345&amp;response_code=200&amp;service=Ec2&amp;problem_type=server_down&amp;time=2022-08-31+20%3A28%3A53.237962": Unexpected character while parsing literal token: 'i'
)</msg>


Please let me know if you need any more help

Got the solution 

This error was happening because of not sending data in JSON format  


just added this code 

data1=json.dumps(data)

and passed data1 instead of data and now it is working perfectly fine  

import requests
import datetime
import json


now = datetime.datetime.now()

# print(now)
data = {'ticket_id':'CH-12345','response_code':200,'service':'Ec2','problem_type':'server_down','time':str(now)}

 

headers = {
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
}
data1=json.dumps(data)
response = requests.post('https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/TA-cherwell-data-pull/storage/collections/data/cherwell_dat...' ,headers=headers, data=data1 , verify=False , auth=('admin' , 'changeme'))
print(response.status_code)
print(response.text)
