Malformed JSON string while retrieving Crucible review data using REST Api's

Hello ,

The following code snippet throws the following error :

my $headers = {Content-type => 'application/json' ,Accept => 'application/json', Authorization => 'Basic ' . encode_base64($username . ':' . $password)};

my $client = REST::Client->new();

$client->setHost('http://Cru_Server:8060/cru');

$client->GET('/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/allOpenReviews',$headers);

#print $client->responseContent();

my $response = from_json($client->responseContent());

print $response;

malformed JSON string, neither array, object, number, string or atom, at charact

er offset 1 (before "<!DOCTYPE html>\n<ht...") at Crucible_Interaction.pl line

Any suggestion's?

Thanks ,

Mohan

It looks like you are getting an error response. Can you look at the whole response. Usually there is a message in there regarding the error. You can alos look at the log on the server side to see what might be going wrong.

That's not a JSON response, by the way.

Hi Mohan,

Are you using your REST client correctly? I'm not super familiar with perl, but I would assume that a method called setHost is not meant to take a URL path. You could try something like this:

$client->setHost('Cru_Server:8060');

$client->GET('/cru/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/allOpenReviews',$headers);

You may also need to set the port separately to the host?
