Description of Issue/Question


I try to apply theses state, the make a POST request to an API :

    - name: http.query
    - url: https://observium.domain.tld/api/v0/devices/
    - method: POST
    - username: REDATECTED
    - password: REDACTED
    - data: '{"hostname":""}'
    - header: "Content-Type: application/json"

If I run the module like salt '*' http.query https://.... it work.

But when I apply the state, the method (POST) and maybe other args are ignored, and of course, the request fail :

[INFO    ] Running state [http.query] at time 09:43:45.220647
[INFO    ] Executing state for [http.query]
[WARNING ] The function "" is using its deprecated version and will expire in version "Sodium".
[DEBUG   ] LazyLoaded http.query
[DEBUG   ] Requesting URL https://observium.domain.tld/api/v0/devices/ using GET method
[DEBUG   ] Using backend: tornado
[INFO    ] {u'ret': {u'status': 401, u'error': u'HTTP 401: Unauthorized'}}

I have tried the http.query state directly, but it doesn't work too. Only the http.query module work, on cli.

Any idea how to fix that ? Thanks.

It looks like you need to switch to the newer use_superseded format:

Try adding the following snippet to a minion config:
