ClearPass API creating multiple network devices.

    Hello all,

    After a couple of days trying to dig through as much documentation as possible I have encountered a road block with my POST to create multiple network devices. 

    I am using PostMan for my API call's and haven't had any issue executing single device creations, other tasks within the API.

    When trying to send in my call to create multiple devices I am getting a 422 HTTP code.

    I am assuming it may be something with how my JSON request is formatted. I am by no means an expert, so this is going to likely be the issue. Like I said though creating singular devices, etc I have no issues.

    Attached is an example of the formatting (note the url, ips, etc. are that way purely for example sake I am using all the necessary variables in order to enable successful API calls.

    Any guidance would be beyond appreciate. Thanks!

    You probably should just replicate the API call with one single device in each call. I don't think you can add multiple devices in a single API call.

    Ah very well - that what I was trying to get to was doing that via one API call. I appreciate the quick feedback!
