Not able to create an Address Object using postman

L0 Member

Hi!

I'm using Postman to create an address object using Rest API.

This is what I'm posting:

*https://10.46.169.141/restapi/v9.1/Objects/Addresses?name={{"My-Address"}}&location=vsys&vsys=vsys1

 

This is my body:

{
    "entry": {
        "@name""My-Address",
        "ip-netmask""8.8.8.8",
        "description""My test address"
    }
}
 
 
This is my error:
{
    "code"3,
    "message""Malformed Command",
    "details": [
        {
            "@type""CauseInfo",
            "causes": [
                {
                    "code"18,
                    "module""panui_mgmt",
                    "description""Malformed Command: Malformed Request."
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}
 
I'm using JSON but I'm not sure what I'm missing.

Hi @sconejo, could it have been the braces {{}} being mixed up between the URL and the JSON? I would use variables in both or neither, and probably choose to use a variable in both. This works for example:

https://{{host}}/restapi/v9.1/Objects/Addresses?name={{object-name}}&location=vsys&vsys=vsys1

{
    "entry": {
        "@name": "{{object-name}}",
        "ip-netmask": "8.8.8.8",
        "description": "My test address"
    }
}
