Create record with api

I am forming a request to create a record using the example of “curl “$ComposeAPI/namespace/$NAMESPACE_ID/module/$MODULE_ID/record/”
-H"Authorization: Bearer $JWT”
-H ‘Content-Type:application/json’
–data-binary “{
"values": [
{ "name": "$FIELD1", "value": "$VALUE1" },
{ "name": "$FIELD2", "value": "$VALUE2" }
]
}”;"
the response from the server comes that the field does not exist. Please tell me where to find or view the existing fields? To send a POST request, I could create a new record

Hi,

the easiest way to test how to send data is checking out our requests via the webapp, in this case the compose.

Here is an example of a Task record being created, what I did was:

  • go to Tasks record page
  • created a new Record
  • opened up the web developer toolbar
  • checked the payload of the POST request

If you export this as curl (some stuff redacted):

curl 'https://localinstance/api/compose/namespace/361869359469756418/module/361869359515172866/record/' \
  -H 'accept: application/json, text/plain, */*' \
  -H 'authorization: Bearer FOO' \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data-raw '{"values":[{"name":"OwnerId","value":"666"},{"name":"Subject","value":"Tis a value"}],"records":[],"meta":{}}'

You can find the existing fields in the administration of the module in compose, or you can call the api to fetch the structure of the module:

curl 'https://localinstance/api/compose/namespace/${NAMESPACE_ID}/module/?sort=name+ASC' \
  -H 'accept: application/json, text/plain, */*' \
  -H 'authorization: Bearer FOO'

You can find your module in the list then.

Also there are api docs on Corteza Server REST API Documentation that you can get to via our documentation page.
