I have put together a short video on using cURL to make web script calls to Alfresco. This is a basic demonstration for getting started with cURL. From this video, you can learn how to authenticate as a user from cURL, and then use that login to make GET and POST requests to Alfresco. In addition, examples of making calls as a ‘Guest’ user are provided.
With these basics covered, you can use cURL to build scripts that can test web scripts, make calls to monitor Alfresco, or even update the repository.
The cURL utility is typically run on the Linux command line, but, with Cygwin installed, it can also be used on Windows.
