Import a User to unity api is not working

I have referred below document from cisco site followed the same but it is not working, so kindly help me on this issue,

Import a User

 POST http://<server>/vmrest/import/users/<type>?templateAlias=<voice mail user template> with an ImportUser object

An important point here is that because these users are imported, almost all values come from the internal database. One exception for an LDAP import is the dtmfAccessId. The dtmfAccessId data is not available in the internal database, so an LDAP import must specify both a pkid and a dtmfAccessId.


POST /vmrest/import/users/ldap?templateAlias=voicemailusertemplate HTTP/1.1 Content-Type: application/json User-Agent: Java/1.6.0_20 Host: Accept: text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, \*; q=.2, \*/*; q=.2 Connection: keep-alive Authorization: Basic Y2NtYWRtaW5pc3RyYXRvcjplY3NidWxhYg== Content-Length: 126 \{"alias":"sdavis","firstName":"sonya","lastName":"davis","dtmfAccessId":"12123","pkid":"c2e2bf1c-f249-40e5-b7b8-31a5b0333647"\}

For example:


The POST above would produce the following response:

 HTTP/1.1 201 Created



my code :

URL = 'https://{}/vmrest/import/users/ldap?templateAlias=voicemailusertemplate'.format(server)


UserHeaders = {'Accept':'text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, \*; q=.2, \*/*; q=.2' , 'content-type':'application/json','connection':'keep_alive'}

data = {
'alias': 'testdevops',
'firstName': 'test',
'lastName': 'devops',
"dtmfAccessId": "1908",
'pkid': '8a15a6ab-965a-de21-c3e1-af48dcaa3f97'

response =, headers = UserHeaders, data= data, auth=(username, password), verify=False)



I was getting this error when tried to make post request using python,

'The HTTP header field "Accept" with value "text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, \\*; q=.2, \\*/*; q=.2" could not be parsed.'
