I try to make a php script to start a jail and I found out that best way is to use the api v2.0.
But first I want to just try curl in cmd but can't figure out how to do it.
This is what I have:
Code:
curl -X POST "http://192.168.1.200/api/v2.0/jail/start" -H "accept: */*" -H "Authorization: Bearer 1-xxx" -H  "Content-Type: application/json"

I don't know where to specify the jail name either.
The response I get is just a number that increases by 1 every time I redo the request.

Have you looked at the REST API v2.0 documentation? To specify the jail in the POST, use -d "<name of your jail>" at the end of your curl string.

Thanks for the reply, i looked at the api docs on my truenas server and there is not imformation.
Now the response is:

{"message": "Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)"}

That unhelpful message typically means to experiment with the quotes. Try this: -d '"<name of your jail>"'.

Still the same error
I used:
Code:
curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer 1-xxx" "http://192.168.1.200/api/v2.0/jail/start/" -d '"<jail_name>"'

with "1-xxx" my api key
and <jailk_name> the name of the jail I want to start

Did you find a solution? I'm trying to write a restart jail command.
