xsrf check failed creating project bitbucket server using python request

Hi Team,

I'm trying to create a project using a python script and the requests library.

When doing get requests, I have no problem, but when doing post requests, I encounter a "xsrf check failed"

Here's the snippet:

payload = {"key":"EQSS_TST", "name":"qtm_test"}

r = requests.post('http://server.co.uk:7990/rest/api/1.0/projects', params=payload, auth=(user,password))

The error message is "XSRF check failed"

Thanks for you help!

The POST request header must contain Content-type = application/json 

I'm not planning on adding an avatar to the project so I shouldn't need to define the content-type.

The example prototype on the documentation says:

{
    "key": "PRJ",
    "name": "My Cool Project",
    "description": "The description for my cool project.",
    "avatar": "data:image/png;base64,<base64-encoded-image-data>"
}

Has anybody ever created a project using the "requests" python library?
