Create Solution Category

I am currently trying to create a new category via curl POST request. I am using the following Command:

“curl -v -u (myapikey):X -X POST -H ‘Content-Type: application/json’ -d ‘{ “name”:“TEST”, “description”:“Test”}, “visible_in_portals”:[1]’ https://(mydomain)/api/v2/solutions/categories”

But i get the following response:

" * Connection #0 to host left intact
{“code”:“invalid_json”,“message”:“Request body has invalid json format”}%"

I used the Command provided by Freshdesk, the only thing I changed, is that I wanted to use the API rather than basic auth. Link: Service Desk API for Developers | Freshservice

Can someone help me?

Hi @Tobias
Welcome to the Freshworks developer community!

It seems the "visible_in_portals":[1]' should be sent inside data. Could you please check the curl?


curl -u -H “Content-Type: application/json” -X POST -d ‘{ “name”:“API”, “description”:“API related documents”, “visible_in_portals”:[1] }’

Hi, unfortunately this doesn’t help. I get the following Message:

zsh: no matches found: “visible_in_portals”:[1]
