783: unexpected token at

I am trying to run a "set" or "adjust" against my store and am getting an "unexpected token error".  I see nothing wrong with the JSON.  The code is written in perl, and the below is the log of my run.  I copied it from some code I know works because it is currently running in production, so I am a little confused as to what is wrong with the JSON.  So what is wrong with my JSON, or how can I figure out what is wrong?

Here is the set example:

curl -i -X POST https://$API_KEY:$API_PASSWORD@$store.myshopify.com/admin/api/2020-01/inventory_levels/set.json -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"location_id": 20308554,"inventory_item_id": IT-9284-1000-BSK-LG,"available": 30,"disconnect_if_necessary": true}'

And here is the "adjust" example:

curl -i -X POST https://$API_KEY:$API_PASSWORD@$store.myshopify.com/admin/api/2020-01/inventory_levels/adjust.json -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"location_id": 20308554,"inventory_item_id": IT-9284-1000-BSK-LG,"available_adjustment ": 30}'

This is an accepted solution.

Ok, I got around the problem by replacing

 

"inventory_item_id": IT-9284-1000-BSK-LG

 

with

 

"inventory_item_id": <item_inventory_id>

 

Kind of an unclear error, but maybe I am just not used to dealing with JSON web services.  Now, as per my others posts, I need to find a more efficient way to get the inventory_item_id
