Bamboo Cloud queue build via REST API

Hi Team,

I'm currently looking to integrate a Bamboo cloud API, specifically to queue a new build from an external application.

I've gotten authentication working and even receiving the expected response (200 OK with empty body) from:

URL: `/builds/rest/api/latest/queue/{Project}-{Plan}?os_authType=basic`
Method: `POST`


But the build never queues and no errors.

I wrote tests following the REST API documentation and wanted to know if the documentation is valid for Cloud hosts as well as on premises hosted Bamboo servers?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

In case helps others. The following cURL example works, I was constructing the request incorrectly.

curl -D- -u 'username:password' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST "https://{MyCloudName}.atlassian.net/builds/rest/api/latest/queue/MYPROJ-MYPLAN?executeAllStages=true"

As first commenter pointed out correctly, response is build queue info in "Accecpt" type format, not 200 OK empty response as the overview docs suggest.

What is your headers? Try to use

Content-Type: application/json
Accepts: application/json

In 200 response you should receive JSON object with started build details

Thanks for the comment. Both `Content-Type` and `Accepts` headers are set to `application/json`. 

It is responding correctly with an empty body as per REST api for POST to build queue documentation. https://developer.atlassian.com/bamboodev/rest-apis/bamboo-rest-resources?continue=https%3A%2F%2Fdeveloper.atlassian.com%2Fbamboodev%2Frest-apis%2Fbamboo-rest-resources&application=dac#BambooRESTResources-BuildQueueService

Can you confirm this functionality does work for Cloud hosted Bamboo as well as on premises Bamboo?
