Crucible Rest API stop/start repository failed

I have generated Rest API token under Authentication Setting of Administartion page.

And Using:

curl -X POST -H "X-Api-Key: YOUR-API-TOKEN-HERE"  http://SERVER:PORT/CONTEXT/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/REPOSITORY-NAME/scan

scan repository succeed!

But using :

curl -X POST -H "X-Api-Key: 01be8038370e66521e685685f0dc6078f625f577"  http://192.168.1.210:8060/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/repo1/stop

always return :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<status>
<status-code>401</status-code>
<message>Client must be authenticated to access this resource.</message>
</status>

How should I solve this issue?

Hi Fei Wang,

The Rest API token can only currently be used with the /scan REST endpoint.

You will need to use another auth type (such as BASIC) if you wish to access other admin REST endpoints.

If you are using curl, then supply the username/password like so:

curl -u username:password ...

Cheers,

Nick

Thank you very much!I tested successfully !

But still it's strange.I used 3 accounts testing : root /usr1/usr2 .

user1 is built-in account.user2 is from LDAP. These 2 accounts are belong admin group.

Only user1 can get right response.

curl -X POST -u user1:testpwd http://192.168.1.210:8060/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/repo1/stop

response:
{"name":"repo1","state":"STOPPED","enabled":true,"indexingStatus":{"linesOfContentIndexingInProgress":false,"error":false,"fullIndexingInProgress":false,"lastScanTime":1363829468005,"incrementalIndexingInProgress":false}}

curl -X POST -u user2:testpwd http://192.168.1.210:8060/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/repo1/stop

response:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><status><status-code>401</status-code><message>Client must be authenticated to access this resource.</message>

curl -X POST -u root:rootpwd http://192.168.1.210:8060/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/repo1/stop

response:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><status><status-code>401</status-code><message>Client must be authenticated to access this resource.</message>

Why did this happen?
