PowerShell or *.bat file with REST API


#1

Dear all

I am “junior” :slight_smile: and only start to use Chef. I surprised that this is
really smart tool.

I would like to ask you to send me the examples of the scripts in
PowerShell or *.bat files with examples of the communication with Chef
Server via REST API.

I will be grateful for the support.

Еhanks in advance
Leonid

Hello

I tried to write simple scripts which will use REST API and communicate
with Chef Server, something like that:

$username = “adminaccount”
$password = “adminaccount”

$basicAuth = ("{0}:{1}" -f $username,$password)
$basicAuth = [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($basicAuth)
$basicAuth = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String($basicAuth)
$headers = @{Authorization=(“Basic {0}” -f $basicAuth)}

Invoke-RestMethod -Uri https://10.11.48.102/organizations/NAME/license
-headers $headers -Method Get

Please suggest examples.
Leonid.
