EnableRemoteDesktop API Not Working

New Contributor III

When I attempt to use the JAMF API to enable Remote Desktop using

/usr/bin/curl --verbose --header 'authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXX' https://XXXXXXX.jamfcloud.com/JSSResource/computercommands/command/EnableRemoteDesktop/id/XXXX

I get the following output ... 

Warning: Binary output can mess up your terminal. Use "--output -" to tell 
Warning: curl to output it to your terminal anyway, or consider "--output 
Warning: <FILE>" to save to a file.


Then if I check System Preferences ... it's not set. Is there another way to get output to see where it's going wrong? I don't want to have to put the username/password in a script, hence using basic auth, but I'm not sure if that's why it's not working. 
Any ideas?

It looks like you are just sending a 'curl' rather than sending a POST - https://developer.jamf.com/jamf-pro/reference/createcomputercommandbycommandandid

As wkelly1 answered, that would be it. Also add in url switch, try the following but tweak for your auth / url settings etc;

/usr/bin/curl --request POST \
--url "https://XXXXXXX.jamfcloud.com/JSSResource/computercommands/command/EnableRemoteDesktop/id/XXXX \
--silent \
--header "Authorization: Bearer $token"
