Subject: Re: Using curl to post new entries 

After going through the code of the Python API (https://github.com/paulscherrerinstitute/py_elog/blob/master/elog/logbook.py) I tried the following:
$ python3
>>> from passlib.hash import sha256_crypt
>>> sha256_crypt.hash( 'foobaa', salt='', rounds=5000)[4:]
'waa2sT6eBt.qk0wsucX/nxU5GcqffqlEx6ja5Lg1OR5'
>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> datetime.now().timestamp()
1599039390.964989
$ curl -F cmd=Submit -F exp=labor -F unm=florian -F upwd='waa2sT6eBt.qk0wsucX/nxU5GcqffqlEx6ja5Lg1OR5' -F Encoding=plain -F When=1599039390.964989 -F Author=curl -F Subject="curl test" -F Category=General -F Type=Diary -F Text="foo baa" http://localhost:8080/test/

This worked. It seems to me, that the "-u" option from Curl is not working for elog.

Cheers,
Florian

Hey,

i'm trying to use curl to post new entries to our logbook as described here: https://elog.psi.ch/elogs/Forum/68597.
The Elog is installed via the Deban package on Buster.
I created a test logbook with attributes Author, Type, Category and Subject.

curl -u florian:foobaa -F cmd=Submit -F Author=Florian -F Type=Diary -F Category=General -F Subject="testing curl" -F Text="foo baa" http://localhost:8080/test

As you can see, curl only prints the login page of the logbook and no new entry has been created. Any suggestions what might go worng here?

Regards,
Florian
