Hi,

in this line: my $obj = $json->decode( $res->content );

i got the error:

malformed JSON string, neither array, object, number, string or atom, at character offset 0 (before "\n \n...") at huson_teste.pl line 40

Need help please...

@MangeshBiradar

facing same error.
malformed JSON string, neither array, object, number, string or atom, at character offset 4 (before "<!DOCTYPE html><html...") at each_job.pl line 45

@aroth-fastprotect

i had the same problem, but when i checked the returned document is regular HTML not JSON. So check Google and found that you have to add /api/json (e.g. http://server/jenkins/api/json) to your URL and them it's working just fine.
