The code given below is my nodejs code forunlocking my wallet name "seek".I got this API from eos developers portal,but don't know how to pass input data(wallet name and password) into it.Please help me.

var request = require("request");
var s ="seek"
payload = [s,"PW5HrGdY9zSiKYB6462dcKfpHZYN3eYSCkER2ZMzTiZjQpxKXh6B4"]
var bi =JSON.parse(payload)
var options = { method: 'POST',
url: '',
headers: { 'content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8' },body:bi };

request(options, function (error, response, body) {
if (error) throw new Error(error);


The wallet name and password is given in the payload variable.When i run the following code i get this error

undefined:1 seek,PW5HrGdY9zSiKYB6462dcKfpHZYN3eYSCkER2ZMzTiZjQpxKXh6B4 ^

  • Try, payload = "{"seek","PW5HrGdY9zSiKYB6462dcKfpHZYN3eYSCkER2ZMzTiZjQpxKXh6B4"}"

The error states that your JSON is invalid. You just need to pass '["WALLET_NAME", "YOUR_WALLET_PASSWORD"]' as body string and that should work.
