Create Assets

To create Assets, a User needs to be authenticated with a Role that has “create” access with a specific asset type in a specific Project.

The parameters currently used to create assets are assetTypeId, projectId, and properties.

  • The assetTypeId relates to the asset type the new content will be created under. This could relate to a line, work item, image or any other asset type in the system.
  • The projectId is the id of the project you’re creating the content in. You must choose a Project to store your data.
  • The properties field represents a JSON string that will be used when creating the Asset. An asset type have specific properties (Name, URL, Legacy ID, …) and this properties JSON string is where these are defined
