Here is how you can set a new state:

login=<...>
password=<...>
saymon_hostname=<...>
object_id=<...>
url=https://$saymon_hostname/node/api/objects/$object_id/manual-state

curl -X PUT $url -u $login:$password \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -d @- <<EOF
{
    "stateId": 3,
    "clear": false,
    "reason": "Testing"
}
EOF
let login = <...>
let password = <...>
let saymonHostname = <...>
let objectId = <...>
let path = "/node/api/objects/" + objectId + "/manual-state";
let auth = "Basic " + btoa(login + ":" + password);

let headers = new Headers();
headers.append("Authorization", auth);
headers.append("Content-Type", "application/json");

let data = JSON.stringify({
    "stateId": 3,
    "clear": false,
    "reason": "Testing"
});

let requestOptions = {
    method: "PUT",
    headers: headers,
    body: data
};

fetch(saymonHostname + path, requestOptions)
    .then(response => response.text())
