Testting NBU 8.1.1's API with curl

Level 1

Hi everyone, I´m testing the NBU API´s but follow documentation I can not have success.
First of all, using these line doesn´t work:

content-type: application/vnd.netbackup+json;version=1.0

I get some progress when changing to 


After this authenticate failed, but documentation is clear about wich credencial I need to provide, follow my request

curl -X POST https://nb-master.lab.pvt:1556/netbackup/login -H Content-Type:applition/json;version=1.0' -d "{\"domainType\":\"vx\",\"domainName\":\"lab.pvt\",\"userName\":\"nbwebsvc\",\"password\":\"P@ssw0rd\"}" -k -v

What I´m doing wrong?


Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.

While I am not sure about the settings in your environment, usually nbwebsvc is a service account with no rights in NBU. I would try a user account that can be used to log in to the Java console.
