I'm completly new to this list and the product behind it. I'm trying to use perl to get a list from my IPA installation of all users that are on the server.


use strict;
use REST::Client;
use JSON;
use Data::Dumper;
use MIME::Base64;

my $username="admin";
my $password="secret";
my $headers= {
   'Accept' => 'application/json',
   'Content-Type' => 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
   'Authorization' => 'Basic',
   'user' => encode_base64($username),
   'password' => encode_base64($password)

my $client=REST::Client->new();
$client->POST("/ipa/session/login_password", $headers);
print Dumper $client->responseContent();

Sadly I get back
$VAR1 = '500 Not a SCALAR reference

I can't find any hinside the error log of the apache, even with debug enabled. I can't find any thing in the internet that helps me. (Perhaps I do not know where to look for).

So any idea where I should look at it to troubleshoot this problem?
You are doing it wrong :)

Have you read my blog article?

You need to:
- present referer pointing back to IPA server
- use correct accept header as 'text/plain' for session password logon
- pass username and password in the body of the request, not header,
  encoded ias form parameters 'user' and 'password'

Attached is a simple example that works.
