Send POST from script

Hi. It is possible to call a script that posts a url.
Here I have a code but something is wrong.
The name of the script is send_medition and is called by pressing on “GRABAR MEDICION”




  url: http://localhost
  method: POST
    authorization: 'Bearer ABCDEFGH'
    content-type: 'application/json'
  payload: '{"state":entity???}'

The REST sensor that can use the POST method. If you can get that to work you can use homeassistant.update_entity to force the sensor to run.

Another option would be to create a shell command. Here is an example I found. This example assumes you have access to curl on your operating system.

curl -d '{"key1":"value1", "key2":"value2"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST http://localhost:3000/data

I also see there is a notification rest method.

Thanks. I will try

Hi. Everything is working but I can’t pass the entities. How do I send it? Thanks

  send_medition: 'curl -X GET http://localhost/?action=setMeditions&valor={{input_text.valor_medicion}}&quimico={{input_select.quimicos}}'

Try to copy paste the shell command in the template editor and see if it returns the expected results.

This is de error
