Having Problem with Tempo api Holiday schemes

Hi all I'm trying to set up our holiday schemes via the api, specifically setting up a new holiday.

I've tried to follow the documentation shown here:


My code is as follows:


session = requests.Session()
session.headers.update({'Authorization': f'Bearer {get_tempo_token("w")}',
'Content-Type': 'text/plain'
data = {"type": "FIXED", "name": "Christmas Eve", "description": "The day before Christmas",
"durationSeconds": 28800, "date": "2021-12-24"}
headers = {
'Authorization': f'Bearer {get_tempo_token("w")}',
'Content-Type': 'text/plain',
response ='', headers=headers, data=data)


curl (just to test my python implementation):

curl --request POST '' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer api_token' \
-H 'Content-Type: text/plain' \
--data-raw '{"type": "FIXED","name": "Christmas Eve","description": "The day before Christmas","durationSeconds": 28800,"date": "2021-12-24"}'


In both cases I get a 415 error with the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again later. If the error persists, contact our support team."

Digging deeper in python 

response.reason = 'Unsupported Media Type'


Any help?


Note I'm reasonably confident my authentication is working well as i can use it to get data successfully.

Hi @Matt Dumont

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It looks like the documentation you are referring to is incorrect/outdated and I have informed our technical writers about it.

Can you please try the following and check if this is working. 

curl -X POST "" \
--header "Authorization: Bearer {Access_Token}" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--data '{"type": "FIXED","name": "Christmas Eve","description": "The day before Christmas","durationSeconds": 28800,"date": "2022-12-24"}'

Best regards,

changing the header to "application/json" and


changing the data (in my python script) from:

data = {"type": "FIXED", "name": "Christmas Eve", "description": "The day before Christmas",
"durationSeconds": 28800, "date": "2021-12-24"}


data = '{"type": "FIXED", "name": "Christmas Eve", "description": "The day before Christmas", "durationSeconds": 28800, "date": "2021-12-24"} '


worked perfectly.  thanks!
