Hello Guys,
I am having a little problem with a Unifi Controller that I am trying to communicate with through PHP.
The API documentation for the controller is located here: http://dl.ubnt.com/unifi/4.6.0/unifi_sh_api

And the function I'm trying to use is to authenticate a user.
# cmd/stamgr
# authorize-guest(mac, minutes, [up=kbps, down=kbps, bytes=MB])
unifi_authorize_guest() {
    if [ $# -lt 2 ] ; then
        echo "Usage: $0 <mac> <minutes> [up=kbps] [down=kbps] [bytes=MB] [ap_mac=mac]"
        return
    fi

    mac=$1
    minutes=$2
    other_payload=`named_args_to_payload "$@"`

    ${curl_cmd} --data "json={'cmd':'authorize-guest', 'mac':'${mac}', 'minutes':${minutes}${other_payload}}" $baseurl/api/s/$site/cmd/stamgr
}

I got it working with the first 3 commands, but I cant get upload, download and quota to work.
This is how I do it now:

$data = json_encode(array(
                                    'cmd'=>'authorize-guest',
                                    'mac'=>$id,
                                    'minutes'=>$minutes));

I hoped that I could just do it like this, but it doesnt work :-( Am I dont know about this kind of programmering.

$data = json_encode(array(
                              'cmd'=>'authorize-guest',
                              'mac'=>$id,
                              'minutes'=>$minutes,
                              'up'=>$upload,
                              'down'=>$download));

So I hope some of you guys can help me out here, and tell me how the string to the controller should look like to get it working.

Thanks,

The code you've posted seems to be a mix of shell scripting and php.  Are you trying to convert the API to php or just trying to utilise it?

I got the solution... there was a bug in the firmware on the Access Points. After new firmware from the manufactor, everything worked fine with the above php code.
