Unable to apply label to Bamboo Builds - POST api

My curl request looks like below,

curl -X POST -H “Content-Type: application/json” -H ‘authorization: Basic XXXX‘ -d ‘{“name”:”UTWeekly”}’ https://BambooURL/rest/api/latest/result/{projectKey}-{buildKey}-{buildNumber}/label

I am getting "The origin server is refusing to service the request because the payload is in a format not supported by this method on the target resource" error when made post api to add label to the build.

And you REST API document does not have proper details about the content type json. It shows xml info there. That needs fix.

Please help me fix the issue.

Hi @Amol Kandurwar

Thank you for reaching out to the Atlassian Community!

The command you are running looks correct, however, it appears that you may be using "smart" quotation marks. Is it possible that the command was typed and copied out of a text editor?

curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H 'authorization: Basic XXXX' \
-d '{"name":"UTWeekly"}' \

To test, I ran the same command on my local instance, and although it returned no detail, the label appeared on the Build Result that I referenced.

Thank you for calling out the XML data being shown in place of the JSON detail. I have filed a request to our Technical Writer to review this. You can find the request at BAM-20569.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
