HTTP Error 411. The request must be chunked or have a content length.

Hello. I am trying  a PUT call with the API, and I get this message error that I don't know what means and how I can fix. Any help?

Thank you in advance.

    Hi! I am using PHP, and I use http.php and oauth_client.php libraries.

    This is the call that shows the error:

    $success = $client->CallAPI('', 'PUT', array('billing_state' => 'Billed'), array('FailOnAccessError'=>true), $user);   

    In the other hand, if I make a GET call, it works correctly.


    Thank you for your response

    I'm not familiar with PHP.
    Maybe @DomLan  could take a look ?

    Hi @adqa,

    no, PHP isn't among languages I use (sorry).

    I can try to help you with regard to the type of response received (HTTP 411)

    Beyond the length, you need to make sure you pass a payload in the request body. PHP's array (x => y) method creates an array or dictionary, but what you need to report in the body's request is the resulting JSON.

    Something like:

    json_encode(array('billing_state' => 'Billed'))

    Also make sure you have set the content-type as the request header to 'application/json'. This is the classic form for your type of request

    PUT /api/v1/reports/connections/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Content-Type: application/json
    {'billing_state' : 'Billed'}
