Bamboo REST API create branch for Perforce

I have been able to create branches through the REST API using calls similar to this:

curl -X PUT --user admin:admin http://awebsite.com:8085/rest/api/latest/plan/PROJ-PLAN/branch/testbranch

 

For Git and Mercurial, you can add the vcsBranch parameter to specify what branch to create.

curl -X PUT --user admin:admin http://awebsite.com:8085/rest/api/latest/plan/PROJ-PLAN/branch/testbranch?vcsBranch=branch_test

 

 

If you try this with a Perforce-based repository, you get a huge stack trace starting with a null pointer exception. Is there any way to specify other parameters?  I tried client and clientspec.  These don't completely fail, but they also just use the default Perforce workspace, which defeats most of the point in trying to create it via the REST API.

I'm afraid, branches aren't supported for Perforce in Bamboo
