I am developing a module for Drupal 7 that has t make a call to a remote API. I am using drupal_http_build_query and drupal_http_request and finally drupal_json_decode to decode the output.
My code is as follows
$username = $form_state['input']['name']; $password = $form_state['input']['pass']; $authurl = variable_get('sgauth_base_url_authenticate', ''); $headers = array('Content-Type' => 'application/json'); $data = array('email' => $username, 'password' => $password); $query = drupal_http_build_query($data); $options = array('headers' => $headers, 'method' => 'POST', 'data' => $query); $result = drupal_http_request($authurl, $options); dpm($result);
$authurl is returning the correct url for the API.
When I look at the returned object I see the following
The request is (Note host, username and password have been hidden)
POST /SingPostApi/MobileAuthenticate HTTP/1.0 Content-Type: application/json User-Agent: Drupal (+http://drupal.org/) Host: xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxx.com Content-Length: 36 email=xxx%40xx.xxx&password=xxxxxxxx
Which seems OK
$result->code I see a 500 error
$result->data shows Invalid JSON primitive: email.
As far as I can tell my code is OK based on my reading of the Drupal API. I don't understand why I am getting the wrong data returned.
When I make he POST request from the Firefox HTTP Requester I get a 200 code and the data I expect to see returned
I would appreciate it if someone who can see where I am going wrong can point me in the right direction.
