    WebHelpDesk Add techNote to existing ticket using C#




      How can I update a ticket using the API using C# .net.

      I am trying to follow the API from Web Help Desk API

      but it is not working.

      I am using the following code:

      json file:

      "noteText": "Reinstalled the printer driver. Seems to be working fine now.",
      "jobticket": {

          "type": "JobTicket",

          "id": 43741

      "isHidden": false,
      "isSolution": false,"billingRate": {

          "type": "BillingRate",

          "id": 1


        "statusTypeId": 5,

        "emailClient": true,

        "emailTech": true,

        "emailTechGroupLevel": false,

        "emailGroupManager": false,

        "emailCc": false,

        "emailBcc": false,

        "ccAddressesForTech": "",

        "bccAddresses": ""




      public void addNoteToTicket2(string ticketNumber, string noteText, string jsonFile)


              StreamReader streamReader = new StreamReader(jsonFile);

              string ticketContent = streamReader.ReadToEnd();


              byte[] data = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(ticketContent);



              String url = "https://whd-stg.qatar-med.cornell.edu/helpdesk/WebObjects/Helpdesk.woa/ra/Tickets/" + ticketNumber + "?username=user1&password=ppp1234";



              HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);

              //request.PreAuthenticate = true;

              //request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("username", "password"); ;





              //Need this to bypass "Invalid cert errors..."

              ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += delegate { return true; };



              request.ServicePoint.Expect100Continue = false;

              request.Method = "PUT";

              request.ContentType = "application/json";

              request.ContentLength = data.Length;

              request.Accept = "application/json";



              using (Stream stream = request.GetRequestStream())


                  stream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);





              //HttpContext.Current.Response.AppendHeader("Content-Length", request.ContentLength.ToString());



                  HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();


              catch (Exception ex)




                  Debug.WriteLine("ERROR: " + ex.Message);




      I am not getting any error but there is no NOTE being created in the system for that ticket.


      I am able create a NEW Ticket with no problem.


      Please help.
