$ch2 = curl_init($url2);

Even though the Documentation lists "Optional" for Length, you still have to have a valid value there for it in the body. Change your body to add the length value.
code:
{
"kind": "vm",
"length": 100
}

I send you part of my code, Nutanix API asks for the offset and the length, if you do not place them, I will give you the information with a maximum of 500 entities. For that you must page the data.

I ran into a similar issue. One thing that I found is make sure that you send the Content-Type: application/json header with your POST requests. I also found that I had to send at least an empty JSON object in the body of the POST request. Though as others have said, if you don't give a length attribute you may not get back all of the objects you're searching for. I haven't run into an issue with omitting the kind key though. In my case omitting the length key, I get back 20 out of 35 VMs. Hope this helps.
