REST API for commit hook fails with 401: not authorized

I followed this guide to create a curl command to trigger a scan of my respository:

I have verified multiple times that my API key is correct. I've also noticed that I get the same response when the repository name is changed from "sso" to something that doesn't exist.

I have a single repository named "sso" in my fisheye server.

curl -X POST -H "X-Api-Key: [my key was here]"  http://fisheye1/rest-service-fecru/admin/repositories-v1/sso/scan
{"code":"401","message":"You must be an administrator to access this resource.","stacktrace":null}

This widget could not be displayed.

I ended up adding another header

-H "Content-Type: application/json"

ANd it started working. I think the documentation needs to be updated because it doesn't specify this.

Hi Brady,

I've updated the docs to mention needing to add the content type.

Thanks,

Łukasz
