Examples

Example 1:  Create the Incident 

The following request creates the Incident 

POST https://{server_name}/m42Services/api/data/objects/SPSActivityTypeIncident/ HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json;charset=UTF-8
Authorization: Bearer {token}

{     
   "SPSActivityClassBase": {
     "Subject":"Incident created over Public API 2",
      "Category":"42b49002-fed3-4c9b-9532-cf351df038cf",     
      "Urgency":3,
      "Impact":3,
      "DescriptionHTML":"Description of the Incident"
   },
   "SPSActivityClassUnitOfWork":[
      {
         "TypeID":"fe098714-ac94-47f1-9724-df5bac86b3fb",
         "OriginalSolutionHtml":"Created by Public API",                 
         "ActivityAction": 0,
         "CreatedDate":"2019-03-20T16:44:33.67Z"        
      }
   ]
}

Example 2: Create a Ticket with the immediate transformation to Incident 

If the organization uses the Ticket Management, all the incoming issues have to be created first as Ticket object and then turned, depending on kind of the issues, either to Incident or Service Request. The Service allows executing these two operations, as is creating a ticket first and then transforming it to the appropriate type, in one single service request. For that, the request should provide additional directive "TicketType" ( "0" for Incident; "6" - Service request), which runs the transformation. 

POST https://{server_name}/m42Services/api/data/objects/SPSActivityTypeTicket/ HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json;charset=UTF-8
Authorization: Bearer {token}

{     
   "SPSActivityClassBase": {
     "Subject":"Incident created from a Ticket",
      "Category":"42b49002-fed3-4c9b-9532-cf351df038cf",     
      "Urgency":3,
      "Impact":3,
      "DescriptionHTML":"Description of the Incident created fro the Tikcet"
   },
   "InitialData":{
        "Configuration":{"TicketType":"0"}
   }
}
