Example request

This command creates three new user accounts, specifying the following attribute values for each account:

  • familyName
  • givenName
  • email
  • statuses

Note that the statuses attribute is a plural attribute, and contains two child attributes: status and statusCreated.

curl -X POST \
  -H "Authorization: c2dueXZ1czZwYzRqbTdraHIybmVxNWdzODlnYnIyZXE6d3Q0YzN1bjl3a2tjZnZ5a25xeDQ0eW5jNDc2YWZzNjg=" \
  --data-urlencode type_name=user\
  --data-urlencode all_attributes='[{"familyName":"Jones","givenName":"Abe","email":"jonesa@example.com","statuses":[{"status":"active",statusCreated":"2015-12-15T07:36:25Z"}]},{"givenName":"Jackson","familyName":"Gordon","email":"gjack@test.com","statuses":[{"status":"inactive","statusCreated":"2015-10-12T04:00:00Z"}]},{"givenName":"Sally","familyName": "Smith","email":"ssmith@myorg.org"}]' \
      Running this command in Postman

Example Results

  "uuid_results": [
  "results": [
  "stat": "ok"

If you are adding a large number of accounts you could encounter errors with the preceding command; that's because of the way the attributes are formatted within the body parameter. If you run into problems with the bulkCreate endpoint, try formatting the attributes and attribute values as x-www-form-urlencoded parameters instead. For example:

curl -X POST \
  https://my-app.janraincapture.com/entity.bulkCreate \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' 
  -H 'Authorization: Basic dXQ0YmdycmE3dzI4MmpjZm15cGZxeDlwemhxaGpqMmI6dW5qemU5bndrZnV5NmpwdzgzOHFwYTdhZDNoZG55YTY=' \
  -d 'all_attributes=[{"givenName":"Jane","familyName":"Fielding","email":"jane.ortiz@fielding.com"},{"givenName":"Anderson","familyName":"Franks","email":"anderson.franks@example.com"},{"givenName":"Chiang","familyName":"Sun","email":"chiang.sun@example.com"}]&type_name=user'
