Thanks, works fine here.

What is the correct way to call a path then and pass params to it?

Do i have to use this part out of pvesh? But which method to use?

    my ($handler, $info) = PVE::API2->find_handler($method, $dir,
    if (!$handler || !$info) {
        die "no '$cmd' handler for '$dir'\n";

    my ($node, $remip) = check_proxyto($info, $uri_param);
    return proxy_handler($node, $remip, $dir, $cmd, $args) if $node;

    my $data = $handler->cli_handler("$cmd $dir", $info->{name}, $args,
[], $uri_param, $read_password);

    return if $nooutput;

    warn "200 OK\n"; # always print OK status if successful
