Create Repository and Project in 1 API call for teams workspace

We have a team workspace.


In that workspace we have members, and I am a member.


I'm trying to write a script to automatically create a repository and a project in the same call.


I have an authentication token, I can make repositories no problem, but if the project doesn't exist, then it throws an error.


{    "type": "error",    "error": {        "fields": {            "project": [                "Select a valid choice. That choice is not one of the available choices."            ]        },        "message": "project: Select a valid choice. That choice is not one of the available choices."    }}


If I use a project that already exists, it will create my repository and put it in the correct project.


Also, Bitbucket, the documentation is awful, get it together.


Here's the route i'm hitting:

here's that i'm passing with the POST request


{    "scm" : "git",    "project" : {        "key" : "NAME_OF_NEW_PROJECT"    }}


Currently, I cannot create a new repo and a new project, and it would be really nice if I could.
