    Add Configuration Item (CI) Attributes



    To add CI Attributes to a CI Type, use the following URL format:

    http://<hostname>:<port>/api/cmdb/ci/citypeattributes


    Assuming you want to add CI Attributes to a CI Type in the local server with port number 8080, the URL should be given as:

    http://localhost:8080/api/cmdb/ci/citypeattributes


    Keypoints:

    1. Input is an XML string sent as "POST attribute" with key "INPUT_DATA".

    2. The operation name "add"  should be sent as a "POST attribute" with key "OPERATION_NAME".

    3. The technician key should be sent as a "POST attribute" with key "TECHNICIAN_KEY".


    Note:  

    • Technician having SDAdmin role can perform add operation on CI Type.

    • Can add more than one attribute at a time, but only one single CI Type can be added.

    • Parameter Result Format - Optional. specifies the return format ( XML or JSON )

    • If no result format specified then API will return output in JSON format.
