Creating payload for JSON data using SIL

frithjof falck May 24, 2023

Hello,

I'm trying to create a payload for a POST request using SIL.

JSON data:

{
  "fields": {
    "test":"Hallo",
    "test2": "Hallo",
  }
}
I have tried using postman to create the payload:
string payload = "{ \"test\":\"Hallo\", \"test2\": \"Hallo\", }";
Still getting an 415 error. Anybody have any suggestions on how this should be formatted correctly?

Hello @frithjof falck ,

 

A 415 error is the incorrect media type.

DO  you have the correct headers set in Postman?

Content-Type application/json

 

HttpHeader acceptsHeader = httpCreateHeader("Accept", "application/json");
HttpHeader contentTypeHeader = httpCreateHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");

request.headers += acceptsHeader;
request.headers += contentTypeHeader;

Got this working. It wasn't my json data, but the api only accepting a certain media type. Thanks for replying anyways

How did you setup the media type to get this working?

 

It is always useful for others who come across this.

You can also accept your own answer so the question is 'resolved'

Hello. The workaround was to run a curl script as a system routine in SIL. The problem was that that it was not possible to send a post request with content type multipart/form data using SIL.
