Issues adding passwords via webapi

Recommended Posts

Here I've broken out the function - I call it with a line in a foreach that loops through a pre-built array of records:


Add-PWSRecord $record.list $record.title $record.UserName $record.AccountType $record.Password $record.url


of course assuming that $globalapi is set to your global anon api key and that $pwsurl is set to your TLD (everything between "https://" and "/api/passwords")


function Add-PWSRecord {
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $true,Position = 0)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $true,Position = 1)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $true,Position = 2)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $true,Position = 3)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $true,Position = 4)]
        [Parameter(Position = 5)][string]$body_url
    $body= @{
PasswordlistID = $body_listID
Title = $body_title
UserName = $body_username
AccountType = $body_accounttype
Password = $body_pw
URL = $body_url
APIKey = $globalapi
    $jsonPasswordData = $body | ConvertTo-Json

    $uri = "https://$pwsurl/api/passwords"

    $result= Invoke-Restmethod -Method Post -Uri $uri -ContentType "application/json; charset=utf-8" -Body $jsonPasswordData
    $output= 0


It helped in my testing to construct a $body manually (I use ninite.com/vscode for a sandbox instead of ISE) and run the Invoke-Restmethod command manually with it - allowed me to test better without having to keep resetting my .csv source file.


if you can get a manual one to land but not using your script, post it up here.  I'll be glad to look.. I'm no expert, but I may see something.. and if not, there's much better resources around than me!

Btw - I did this because there's no way you want to sort through my giant mess to get to the invoke- command..  I'm also in the middle of a full re-write using some of the advise support gave me and a few new tricks I learned during my troubleshooting to find the bug.

Hey guys,

1st of all: sorry my late response.

So, what did worked for me, after I upgraded to build 8519:

 - create a folder with administrative account;

 - import with a different, non-administrative account;

 - convert a Folder Permission model to propogate down permissions, and added a Administrative account to the list.

 - now I can look through the password lists, and see all the entries.


In all other scenarios I still get the DB error (described in the initial post).
