[SOLVED] [API] POST: Scene Action Start with parameters

Question

I'm trying to start a scene from HA-Bridge using the Scene Action API using a POST HTTP call.  It works fine if there are no parameters being passed in the message body, but as soon as I add a parameter, then it returns HTTP 405 (Method not allowed).  So I tried calling the API from SoapUI and I get a 405 returned there also.  HOWEVER if I call the API from a browser using the /docs Try It! helper (

), then it works fine.

 

So I trapped the message being sent from the browser (the one that is working), and I get:

Please login or register to see this code.

The message that I'm sending from SoapUI is:

Please login or register to see this code.

I've tried modifying the headers in SoapUI so that they all match the browser values, and I still get the error.

 

Anyone got any ideas as to why it's not working?

 

Thanks,

Dave

  • This is now working :D.  I noticed that the connection would work correctly in SoapUI when 'Preemptive Authentication' was turned on (not at all sure why :?).  Therefore, realising that it was authentication related, I changed the request in HA-Bridge to provide the authentication via the HTTP headers, rather than via the URL.

     

    So for anyone else looking to do the same, this is how it's configured in HA-Bridge:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    Where <nn> is the scene number, eg:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    And the value in the HTTP Header after the word 'Basic' is your Fibaro user id and password separated by a colon, and encoded in Base64.  Use a site, such as 

    Please login or register to see this link.

     to do this encoding for you.  So for example:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    becomes:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    In the scene, you can read the parameters using the fibaro:args() function, eg:

    Please login or register to see this code.
