TAO 3.2 - Create Test Taker from API - Is there any API that still work?

edited September 10 in General

I'm refering to this guide. It seem to be outdated.

Then I found this reference:

I'm not really understand how to use that and test on postman. Is there any guide how to use API to create new Test Taker and assign it to a group? Existing discussion seem to not reach any conclusion.

Please advice. Thank You.

    This is the code I'm using right now.

    $process = curl_init("http://myhost/apps/reqt/taoTestTaker/api/testTakers");
    curl_setopt($process, CURLOPT_POST, 1);

    //needed using curl on apache
    curl_setopt($process, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "");
    curl_setopt($process,CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array( 
        "Accept: application/x-www-form-urlencoded", 
        "label: Patrick Plichart", 
        "lastname: Plichart", 
        "firstname: Plichart", 
        "login: pplichart", 
        "password: dummy" 
    //set your credentials 
    curl_setopt($process, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "mylogin:mypassword");
    //return the transfer as a string of the return value of curl_exec() instead of outputting it out directly. 
    curl_setopt($process, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    $returnedData = curl_exec($process);
    //allways check the http code returned 
    $httpCode = curl_getinfo($process, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);
    $data = json_decode($returnedData, true);
    echo $httpCode;


    Return result:

    Why did I get this 406 which mean "Not Acceptable The request can not be accepted by the server."

    Please advice.

  • "Accept: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" is probably incorrect, try changing it to
    "Accept: application/json"

  • already tried that as well. still not working.
