Cannot Create Categories Through API?

Post by jomont00 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:39 pm

There is a reason why CREATE is not supported for Category Entities? I get the following:
Operation CREATE not allowed on entity Category

Same question for CORPORATION entity:
b'{"errorMessage":"Operation CREATE not allowed on entity Corporation","errorMessageKey":"errors.cannotPerformOperation","errorCode":400}'

Hello jomont00 and SashaLobstr, this is Charles from Bullhorn Support.

Can I ask whether the same call is working when used to create other record entities?

I am wondering whether this is because the usertypes associated with the user accounts do not have permissions to create these records. If using a custom usertype associated with a marketplace integration, for example, then this is the likely cause.

I would also review the entity reference guide given here: http://bullhorn.github.io/rest-api-docs/entityref.html

and confirm that all of the required information is being pushed through when creating the record.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any questions!
