it looks like you are missing the hostgroup parameter hash, afair, if
you look at the look, all attributes are values of the key hostgroup.

btw: make sure that you are using the right content-type
(application/json) and pass along the user credentials (as basic auth)
if they are required in your setup.


btw: 0.4. has been released and has a lot of enchantments in the api
area, might worth upgrading.
