(Sorry for my not so great English skills) 


Hey guys, 

I am trying to create a service that creates project areas in multiple aplications.

I am always getting the error 400, because of the body. I dont understand why. I think i fullfill the requirements.

Here is the code.

public static void Create_Proj_area()
        {

            try
            {
                string server = "https://localhost:9443/ccm";

                //first sample string from Jazz wiki

                //formalpm.process.ibm.com

                string xml_content = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>" +

                "<jp06:project-area xmlns:jp06=\"http://jazz.net/xmlns/prod/jazz/process/0.6/ \" jp06:name=\" testProjectAreaCreation \" jp06:templateId=\"formalpm.process.ibm.com\" jp06:templateLocale=\"en_US\"" +

                "<jp06:summary>The summary does not contain anything</jp06:summary>" +

                "<jp06:description>Dummy project area</jp06:description>" +

                "<jp06:visibility jp06:access=\"PUBLIC\"/>" +

                "<jp06:members xmlns:jp06=\"http://jazz.net/xmlns/prod/jazz/process/0.6/ \">" +

                "<jp06:member>" +

                "<jp06:user-url>https://localhost:9443/jazz/users/master</jp06:user-url>" +

                "</jp06:member>" +

                "</jp06:members>" +

                "</jp06:project-area>";

                string url = "https://localhost:9443/ccm/process/manageProjectAreas";

                string mediatype = "application/xml;Charset=UTF-8";

                CookieContainer cookies = GetCookiesContainer();

                HttpWebRequest formPost = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(server + "/j_security_check");

                formPost.Method = "POST";

                formPost.Timeout = 30000;

                formPost.CookieContainer = cookies;

                formPost.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";

                String output = "j_username=" + login + "&j_password=" + password;

                Byte[] outputBuffer = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(output);

                formPost.ContentLength = outputBuffer.Length;

                Stream stream = formPost.GetRequestStream();

                stream.Write(outputBuffer, 0, outputBuffer.Length);

                stream.Close();


                HttpWebResponse formResponse = (HttpWebResponse)formPost.GetResponse();

                string header = formResponse.Headers[AUTHREQUIRED];

                if ((header != null) && header.Equals("authfailed"))
                {
                   // The login failed

                    throw new WebException("Authentication failed");
                }
                else
                {
                    formResponse.GetResponseStream().Flush();
                    formResponse.Close();
                }
             
                string catalog = "https://localhost:9443/ccm/process/project-areas";

                HttpWebRequest webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(catalog);

                webRequest.Method = "POST";

                //webRequest.Headers.Add("X-Jazz-CSRF-Prevent", "here session id");

                //webRequest.PreAuthenticate = true;
                //webRequest.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + token);

                webRequest.KeepAlive = true;

                webRequest.Referer = server;

                webRequest.CookieContainer = cookies;

                webRequest.ContentType = "text/xml";

                webRequest.Accept = "application/xml";

                var parameterString = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(xml_content);

                webRequest.ContentLength = parameterString.Length;

                using (var buffer = webRequest.GetRequestStream())
                {
                    buffer.Write(parameterString, 0, parameterString.Length);

                    buffer.Close();
                }

                System.Net.WebResponse tempResponse = webRequest.GetResponse();

            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(e.StackTrace);
            }

        }
