Getting error 400 when adding a static route

I have been experimenting with the API from PowerShell using cURL in insecure mode.  I've been successful with my GET requests, but I am unable to successfully use a POST request to add a static route.

 

Here is the command I am using (with the private bits replaced):

 

     curl -Lkvi -H "X-Cisco-Meraki-API-Key: $privatesBits" \

     -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \

     -X POST \

     --data-binary \

     '{"name":"testing","subnet":"192.168.4.13/32","gatewayIP":"192.168.248.9","enabled":"true"}' \

     "https://$n000.meraki.com/api/v0/networks/$privateBits/staticRoutes"

 

I get an error 400: bad request back from the server:

     < HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

 

As well as this feedback:

     There was a problem in the JSON you submitted: not a number or other value at line 1, column 1      [parse.c:422]*

I have tested the same function in Postman with the same API key, URL, and json text with no problems.  That is all well and good, but I would prefer to execute these tasks from a PowerShell script.  What am I missing here?  Is it necessary for me to provide a certificate for these changes to work?  I get the same results using ConvertTo-Json in my script as well as when I hard code it.  Passing it directly to cURL at the CLI gives the same results as well.

 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
