POST Command Problems

POST Command Problems

I've recently encountered problems with POST-ing commands to my SoundTouch and can't work out why. GET requests still work fine.
POST-ing key state=”press” sender=”Gabbo”>POWER</key'
to port 8090 on my device, which for the past few months has worked perfectly, along with all the other POST requests. When testing the string using Postman I now get the following:
'?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?
errors deviceID="000C8ABE71B0"
error value="1019" name="CLIENT_XML_ERROR" severity="Unknown">Error parsing request

Any idea whats up, or more importantly where I'm going wrong?

    Hi mkandil,

    The URL for GET and POST should be the same for /volume - if this isn't working for you, can you provide more information with what errors/issues you are seeing? Thanks!

    Hi Zach

    for the (GET command),,, if i used this URL (http://IPAddress:8090/volume) with any web browser ... I get the information about target volume and actual volume and mute status...

    But if I want to change these values, i have to use post command..
    How will be the format for this post command i should send to the lifestyle to change the volume level and mute status ???
    And it can be done with web browser also like the GET ???

    Hi mkandil,

    I believe the Control API docs page should have all the information you need. There's a POST /volume section with details of the request format, plus a general overview for sending POST commands (see "Step 2" in "Getting Started"), including some sample Javascript code. You'll want to use a tool like Postman or curl for POST commands if you're just looking to play around with them a bit.

    I hope that helps -- let me know if you have any further questions!
