Long overdue. API to create a folder in BIM 360 Docs is finally available. Before you go back to your code and try it out yourself, however, I should point out a few things that you may want to be aware:
- It uses commands (not POST-project-folders end point)
- It supports in the user context only: i.e., 3-legged authentication and 2-legged with x-user-id specified. No full 2-legged is supported at this time.
Note also that BIM 360 Team and other A360 based data management service uses POST-project-folder endpoint to create a folder; the command version does not work for them. These may potentially add confusion if you are not aware up front. BIM 360 Docs team is aware of these gaps and will continue to work on to provide consistent and full 2-legged support at later time. For now, most importantly, we have a way to create folder! Let’s take a look.
