Omissions and inconsistencies in the Web API for Custom Tables

[ Edited ]

Although the Swagger documentation implies that the POST /api/metadata/{recordtype}/fields endpoint supports creating fields in a Custom Table, it appears that in reality the {recordtype} can only be a built-in record type (contact, company, group, opportunity, product).  

 

Also conspicuously absent is a POST endpoint to create a completely new Custom Table (say POST /api/metadata/entities).

 

Hopefully this will save someone some time wondering why these calls return nonsense.

Re: Omissions and inconsistencies in the Web API for Custom Tables

Thanks for your post Donald. 

 

We will review this feedback, and determine the best path to add this functionality going forward. Once a solution is determined, we'll update this thread accordingly.
