Hello,

I'm trying to use the JSON RPC API and I've tested the following curl commands for now.
We have LimeSurvey Version 3.16.1+190314 installed.
curl --data-binary '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"get_session_key","params":["adminuser","password"],"id":1}' -H 'content-type: application/json' https://our.limesurvey/index.php/admin/remotecontrol 
 
curl --data-binary '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"get_session_key","params":{"username":"adminuser","password":"password"},"id":"1"}' -H 'content-type: application/json' https://our.limesurvey/index.php/admin/remotecontrol 
Both return:
{
    "error": null,
    "id": 1,
    "result": {
        "status": "Invalid user name or password"
    }
}
though I can log into the portal with the adminuser and password.

Is there anything I'm missing?
What is "id":1 (should it be 1? something else?)

Thanks in advance for your reply,

Best,

alex

Your account are allowed to log in via Auth DB ? If it's a LDAP account, you must use
get_session_key(username,password,'AuthLDAP');

PS: Note that I couldn't find the documentation about this "AuthLDAP" parameter, should I open an issue for this?

Yes please, and put the link here …

The manual need to be updated (but the api autodoc is OK).

And send warning about : Auth system NEED (currently) by default a user/password

Need to update Plugin Auth information too about the new params (i must contraol param name). Then another Auth can be done (sample uniquid in php file).

Hello,

I am facing the same issue for get_session_key function API. I have enabled the JSON-RPC interface and my installed LimeSurvey Version is 3.0.1+171228. I am able to log in with the same credentials through UI

Following is my curl request in which I tried adding the 'AuthLDAP' parameter too.

curl --data-binary '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"get_session_key","params":["admin","password","AuthLDAP"],"id":1}' -H 'content-type: application/json' http://<myHostName.com>:<myPort>/index.php/admin/remotecontrol

Response:
{"id":1,"result":{"status":"Invalid user name or password"},"error":null}

Please help.

Note: I have tried with both the syntax and versions for jsonrpc (1.0 and 2.0) without any help

Okay. Is there a way to work without the plugin parameter in my current LimeSurvey version? And if not, can I use ComfortUpdate to update to version 4.0 without any issue to my current setup. As it is the only version >=3.2 listed in my ComfortUpdate list.

Thank you.

If there are a way : why did you think we add it ?

The only way : allow user to login via AuthDB and give him password …

Edit : else about version : if you have Comfort Update : open a limesurvey GMBH issue : www.limesurvey.org/customer-support/contact-us
You can still donwload the last stable version : www.limesurvey.org/stable-release

Thank you Denis. It worked for me using the encoded password in MySQL DB via AuthDB login, which is fine for my use-case as of now.
