CURL PUT request to a restful API
I have a an API that i am using to perform some automation for some thin client devices. What I am attempting to do is to update a field in a database from the API with information provided by the device.
I have tested the server side code with Postman and the field updates as expected but I cannot get the curl request to run correctly. I did try the code that postman generates for curl requests and that failed.
I am running this from a bash script:
#! /bin/bash MAC=$(cat /sys/class/net/eth0/address) IP=$(hostname -I) FQDN=$(hostname -A) echo $MAC echo $IP echo $FQDN echo " " curl -X PUT --header "application/json" --header "charset=utf-8" --header "content-length: 4" --header "application/json" http://ttuc-thinman1.tuc.us.ray.com/api/ThinClient?mac=$MAC&ip=$IP&fqdn=$FQDN
When I attempt to run this code it dumps straight back to the prompt with no info.
What am I a doing wrong?
