REST API call action set value

Question

Why the rest api document not include the method to set value?

there is a method in lua document to do this

-- non-parametric 'turnOff' action call of id=12 device fibaro:call(12, 'turnOff');
-- 'setValue' action call with one additional parameter fibaro:call(12, 'setValue', '23');

Call Action   

URL: /api/devices/deviceID/action/actionName deviceID – ID of an existing device

actionName – Name of an action

Methods: POST

Description: Trigger an action of the specified device

Response:

 

and when I call http://xxxxxxxx/api/devices/12/action/setValue

it returns error

{
    "error": {
        "code": -1,
        "message": "Exception: Server error"
    },
    "id": 1,
    "jsonrpc": "2.0"
}

 

So, how to pass the actionName with the value in rest api....

 

waiting for your response, thank you very much!
