using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Json;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.Web.Script.Serialization;
using Newtonsoft.Json;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
string data = @"{""name"":""xxxxxx"",""project"":""yyyyyyyy""}";
string output;
HttpClientHandler newClientHandler = new HttpClientHandler();
System.Net.Http.HttpClient client = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient();
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.ExpectContinue = false;
client.Timeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(90);
byte[] crdential = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("adminName:adminPassword");
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new System.Net.Http.Headers.AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic", Convert.ToBase64String(crdential));
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));
System.Net.Http.HttpContent content = new StringContent(data, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json");
client.PostAsync("", content).ContinueWith(requesTask =>
var response = requesTask.Result;
response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().ContinueWith(readTask =>
var out1 = readTask.Result;
Console.WriteLine("Response Result :" + out1);
