Acknowledge alert from the API

I need some advise regarding acknowledging alerts using the API.
I have been using this link as reference

I am currently using PowerShell to get alerts successfully and then run some action offline.

As part of my post actions, I would like to acknowledge the alert but I'm not having much luck with that. I do suspect I'm doing it wrong. 

This is what I'm currently using to try and acknowledge the alert:


$opsGenieBaseURi = ''
$apikey = 'mysecretkey'
$Headers = @{
            'Authorization' = "GenieKey $($apiKey)"
            'ContentType' = 'application/json'

$request_uri = "alerts/38565/acknowledge?identifierType=tiny"
Invoke-RestMethod -Uri ($opsGenieBaseURi+$request_uri) -Headers $headers -Method POST
The error:
Invoke-RestMethod: {"message":"Content type 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8' not supported","took":0.001,"requestId":

Hi @Xana ,

I think it might be as simple an incorrect header? 

Looks like yours is "ContentType"

While I believe it should be "Content-Type"

That does seem to be the problem.
