Create a _new_ pipeline variable

I have successfully modified pipeline variables with the API. Now I am trying to create a new pipeline variable using the API.

According to the documentation you should be able to create a new one using /2.0/repositories/{workspace}/{repo_slug}/pipelines_config/variables/

The "request example" shows the inclusion of a pipeline variable uuid but since the variable does not exist, I do not have a uuid.  

$ echo $request_body
{ "key": "test", "value": "setMe", "secured": "false" }
$ curl -X PUT -u "$BB_API_AUTH" -d "$request_body"
{"type": "error", "error": {"message": "Resource not found", "detail": "There is no API hosted at this URL.\n\nFor information about our API's, please refer to the documentation at:"}}

I've tried with and without a slash after 'variables'. 

$ curl -X PUT -u "$BB_API_AUTH" -d "$request_body"
{"type": "error", "error": {"message": "Method not allowed"}}

How can I create a new pipeline variable?

@Mary Sipple in the second case you're  using right url with / ( , but somewhy use PUT http method.

PUT method is for existing resource, that means, for existing variable, if you want to change its value, for example.

To create a variable you have to use POST method for that

Of course! Thank you so much. It's working now.
