Replicate this curl command in node red flow

I'm trying to send shut down command with curl to ReadyNAS NV+ v2 with this command:

curl -s -v -u user:pass -k "https://192.168.1.11/dbbroker" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded;" -H "X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest" --data "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><xs:nml xmlns:xs=\"http://www.netgear.com/protocol/transaction/NMLSchema-0.9\" xmlns=\"urn:netgear:nas:readynasd\" src=\"dpv_1389313459000\" dst=\"nas\"><xs:transaction id=\"njl_id_725\"><xs:custom id=\"njl_id_724\" name=\"Halt\" resource-id=\"Shutdown\" resource-type=\"System\"><Shutdown halt=\"true\" fsck=\"false\"/></xs:custom></xs:transaction></xs:nml>"

It works from linux shell.
Tried to implement it in Home Assistant with no luck.

I cannot imagine that this is the way to go, but if you want to proceed, you need to escape the double quotes (") in the xml properly for node-red to parse it properly.

Have you tried a http request node? Set the data to the XML and add the headers.

@bakman2 I have tried like this:

msg.headers = {
    'content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
    'X-Requested-With': 'XMLHttpRequest',
    'Authorization': 'Basic '+(new Buffer('user:pass')).toString('base64')
};
msg.payload = '<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><xs:nml xmlns:xs=\"http://www.netgear.com/protocol/transaction/NMLSchema-0.9\" xmlns=\"urn:netgear:nas:readynasd\" src=\"dpv_1389313459000\" dst=\"nas\"><xs:transaction id=\"njl_id_725\"><xs:custom id=\"njl_id_724\" name=\"Halt\" resource-id=\"Shutdown\" resource-type=\"System\"><Shutdown halt=\"true\" fsck=\"false\"/></xs:custom></xs:transaction></xs:nml>';

return msg;

It's passing the xml with http request node, but since the server is https it doesn't work and i don't want to mess with rsa keys right now. Without the SSL it doesn't work with the code above.

@voodoobg please edit your post above (use the pencil icon) and format your code as per this forum post.

As you can see, the discourse forum changes the code that you posted making it difficult for others to help you.

It works from linux shell.

Put it in a file and use the exec node ?

This is how I use curl from node-RED to update Cloudflare with my IP address (albeit json - not xml)

curl

Thanks Paul. I was just thinking I need to sort out for myself how to do that. That's saved me some effort working out how to do it.
