    NSX-v 6.4 API error when Body is JSON but works if it is XML

    dmalhot1 Lurker

      Needed to automate some NSX stuff but I am stuck... I won't cry about JSON examples not being available in documentation .. Here is my issue :

       

      I am using Golang however even Postman fails when using JSON as body payload

       

      Method:POST

      URI : https://nsx-mgr.local/api/2.0/vdn/scopes/vdnscope-1/virtualwires

      Body ( JSON)

       

      {

      "virtualWireCreateSpec": {

      "name": "Test-Logical-Switch",

      "description": "Test",

      "tenantId": "virtual wire tenant",

      "controlPlaneMode": "HYBRID_MODE",

      "guestVlanAllowed": "false"

      }

      }

       

      Fails with error

       

      {

      "errorCode": 401,

      "details": "Invalid Parameter.",

      "rootCauseString": null,

      "moduleName": null,

      "errorData": null

      }

       

      But works when I use it with XML

       

      Method:POST

      URI : https://nsx-mgr.local/api/2.0/vdn/scopes/vdnscope-1/virtualwires

      Body ( XML)

       

      <virtualWireCreateSpec>

      <name>Test-Logical-Switch</name>

      <description>Test</description>

      <tenantId>virtual wire tenant</tenantId>

      <controlPlaneMode>HYBRID_MODE</controlPlaneMode>

      <guestVlanAllowed>false</guestVlanAllowed>

      </virtualWireCreateSpec>

       

       

      I can convert the Body to XML when calling the API but this is bizarre . As per documentation Json is supported . Maybe I am missing something very simple ?
