Try running the parameters string from cmd.exe with hardcoded macros.
The response should look like this
{"status":1,"request":"de7da248-7307-43d2-af17-779b09bd5a11"}

In addition to extra (or missing) spaces, pay attention to quote marks as well.

+1^^.
You said you created an app and have the token; did you set up a "Device" (the smartphone to receive the push notification) ?

First, confirm that your attachment string is pointing to an actual file.
Copy the string (sans the ampersand), click the Windows key, type Ctrl-V, hit Enter.
This should open the jpg file.

If that works, share your parameters string - redacting your token & user strings.

So i did this again as admin and it works. Maybe BI is not doing it as admin? When i try before it said access is denied

It is something to do with admin rights! How do i give BI admin rights on windows 11?

My account is the admin account but even then i have to run cmd - curl as admin before it will work.

Are you running the Blue Iris service with your own user account?

Except from the help pdf - see ‘Testing the action set’

I think the answer is yes i am using the run blue iris as a windows service option and used my local admin accounts password/user.

Still no push over alerts from BI but if i run the code as admin it works.

When i use cmd i get C:\Users\BOX (box being my user) curel.exe -V access is denied

BI probably is getting access is denied.

Maybe i should load win 10 and see if that fixes it.

Check your spelling for typos, it definitely won't work if you used "curel.exe" in your command line string (should be "curl.exe").

A simple spelling mistake everything else is copy and pasted.

I can now get a notification on the pushover app if i do this

put the same info in BI minus the exact JPG location and i get nothing.
