The POST command on the API you're using [1] requires passing the username and password as query parameters, not as a JSON object in the request body.

 

Try something like this instead:

 

 

~> curl -X POST -u "admin:admin" -i 'http://localhost:7180/api/v11/cm/commands/importAdminCredentials?username=user/admin@REALM&password=your-password'

The type of parameter expected is noted in the column on the table in the link above. You need to use JSON request bodies if and only if the POST description requires such a structure, for example for this request [2] (notice the two parameters, plus an additional request body data structure).
