Calling a service with a POST Request

Hello there,

I'm trying to use the REST API to call services and I can do it in some ways, but not those I want/need

Using POSTMAN on Chrome :

POST /Thingworx/Things/Mail/Services/sendPassword HTTP/1.1

        // submit the form
        $(this).ajaxSubmit(options);
                alert('foo');
        // return false to prevent normal browser submit and page navigation
        return false;
    });

it basically works except the data aint sent the way I want since the service don't get them

I left nothing except for the button in the html form

Thanks

Calling a service with a POST Request

If you haven't found your answer to this yet, I would recommend you go to support.ptc.com to log a case.

Calling a service with a POST Request

For future viewers : I think it's just that jQuery changes the data one way or another
I finally did it using Java scriplet in a JSP page
