    curl - HTTP Management


      Hi all,


      trying to execute POST through curl from the console  as described here https://community.jboss.org/wiki/HTTPJSON-likeAPI

      curl -H Content-Type:\ application/json -d '{"operation":"read-resource","address":[],"json.pretty":1}'  http://localhost:9990/management 

      curl: (52) Empty reply from server.


      The GET from the browser works though



      Am I doing sth wrong..?


      I have two more questions


      1. What is the correct way to specify the address when doing POST e.g. for sth like /management/subsystem/logging/console-handler/CONSOLE ?

      2. As I understand only read-* commands are allowed for GET requests,  if I do POST am I allowed to access anything? I am thinking of write-attribute to change configuration parameters and other operations that each resource provides (deploy, undeploy, shutdown etc).

          Have you added a user for domain management?  You are going to need to specify their username in the curl call and provide their password.

            you can find an example how to call management with curl here:

              thanks for your replies,


              although I didn't show in the command line I was using basic authentication from curl. After changing to --digest all works ok e.g.


              cvasilak@casper:~$ curl --digest -D - http://localhost:9990/management --header "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"operation":"read-resource", "address":["deployment","jolokia.war"], "json.pretty":1}' -u username:password
              HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
              Content-length: 0
              Www-authenticate: Digest realm="ManagementRealm",nonce="e371e4c9d9c8e9a54ba00f1211541fdb"
              Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2012 21:56:26 GMT
              HTTP/1.1 200 OK
              Transfer-encoding: chunked
              Content-type: application/json
              Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2012 21:56:26 GMT
                  "outcome" : "success",
                  "result" : {
                      "content" : [{
                          "path" : "deployments/jolokia.war",
                          "relative-to" : "jboss.server.base.dir",
                          "archive" : true
                      "enabled" : true,
                      "name" : "jolokia.war",
                      "persistent" : false,
                      "runtime-name" : "jolokia.war",
                      "subdeployment" : null,
                      "subsystem" : {"web" : null}



              As you can see the "address" part is a standard json array so after populating correctly it works fluently. Plus after changing the operation to "redeploy" the war was redeployed. So I guess I have the full power


              Time for serious fun...


              Thanks a lot!
