Starting a Printjob from Bash Shell

Recommended Posts

Posted · Starting a Printjob from Bash Shell

Hi

 

I use an Ultimaker S5 and want to start a print job from my Bash shell. 

 

Did somebody do something like this?

 

As to my Knowledge, the S5 has no  Serial UART exposed over USB.

 

I am currently looking into CuraEngine

I am also looking into the Swagger API 

 

Thanks

The REST API is indeed your best bet.

I started with the API

 

I created a set of authorization keys. 

A request to /auth/check/ returned authorized 

Now I wanted to try a post on /print_job 

I supplied a job name and a  ufp file

the request returned a 403 authorization required 

 

How do i supply my id to the request

You have to send authorization on every POST.  Right?  That's how authorization usually works.  So you need to send the same authorization header line that you sent to /auth/check/.  Something like this:

 

Authorization: Digest username="2af8417b8501e0422e191d5fbe64209e", realm="Jedi-API", nonce="76684432bdb9a1a386a877e41468a681", uri="/api/v1/system/name", response="50da68df53c0eeb9906212560b0077aa", qop="auth", nc=00000003, cnonce="b2316951bb03e010""MyUltimaker3"

I've never done this.  I'm not an expert on the UM API.  I've done other REST interfaces though with Authorization headers.

 

Did you go to your printer's documentation?

http://1.1.1.1/docs/api/ 

 

But replace 1.1.1.1 with your printer's ip
