If you need HTTPS then you must specify the "-s" option.

You could have looked into the help of the elog command:

> elog -h
elogd 3.1.4 built Jun 14 2021, 18:01:54 revision 611489b
usage: elog
elog -h <hostname> [-p port] [-d subdir]
                              Location where elogd is running
     -l logbook/experiment    Name of logbook or experiment
     -s                       Use SSL for communication
     [-v]                     For verbose output
     [-u username password]   User name and password
     [-f <attachment>]        (up to 50 attachments)
     -a <attribute>=<value>   (up to 50 attributes)
     [-r <id>]                Reply to existing message
     [-q]                     Quote original text on reply
     [-e <id>]                Edit existing message
     [-w <id>|last]           Download existing message (last message)
     [-x]                     Suppress email notification
     [-n 0|1|2]               Encoding: 0:ELcode,1:plain,2:HTML
     -m <textfile>] | <text>
Arguments with blanks must be enclosed in quotes
The elog message can either be submitted on the command line, piped in like
"cat text | elog -h ... -l ... -a ..." or in a file with the -m flag.
Multiple attributes and attachments can be supplied

Hi Stefan,

Here is the, I believe, relevant part of the output:

Note that the URL https://elog-1.matrix.com/LogBook/ exists and works. That's how we create all our log entries via web browser. 

 

Thanks,

Please issue the elog command with an added "-v" flag and post the output here.

Hello,

 

I am trying first time to use the tool /usr/bin/elog. From the documentation is not clear to if everything must be in quotes or not, if every attribute requires -a.

Here is how my attempt looks like (changing actual data by fake one):

      /usr/bin/elog -h elog-1.matrix.com -l LogBook -u jcaballero mypassword -a Team='Team Name Here' Category='Category Here' -a 'Affected service'='Name of affected service here' -a Criticality=Normal -a 'Oncall Documentation'='No modifications required' -a Subject='here is the subject line' 'here is the text'

I just get "Error transmitting message". 

Attributes Team and Category are of checkbox type. Attributes Criticality and Oncall Documentation are of radio type.

What is wrong with my command attempt?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

Cheers,

Jose
