Create a repository with Bitbucket 2.0 REST api and node.js

I am trying to create a repository from a command line app that I am writing. I am using node.js to send a post request to the Bitbucket 2.0 api but even though I am successful in creating the repo, it doesn't seem to honour the settings I create the repo with (e.g. is_private = true, has_wiki = true, language = PHP). I am not sure what I am doing wrong. My guess is it's the way I am formatting the body? Below is the code that I am using.

Anyone able to help? Thanks in advance!

 

var dataString = '{"scm": "git", "has_wiki": true, "is_private": true}';

request({
 url: 'https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/' + username + '/' + _.kebabCase(answers.reponame),
method: 'POST',
headers: {'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + prefs.ginit.token},
body: dataString
}, function (err, res) {
 status.stop();

 if (err) {
 console.log(err);
 reject(new Error('Couldn\'t create remote repo.'));
 }

 let json = JSON.parse(res.body);

 if(res.statusCode == 400) {
 reject(new Error(json.error.message));
 }

 if (res.statusCode == 200) {
 console.log(chalk.green('\n' + json.name + ' created sucessfully.'));
console.log(chalk.green('You can view it here: ' + json.links.html.href + '\n'));

 resolve(json);
 }

});

I was able to find the answer based on this question. I needed to pass the repository settings through a bit differently. Through the form key instead of the body.

request({
 url: 'https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/' + username + '/' + _.kebabCase(answers.reponame),
method: 'POST',
headers: {'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + prefs.ginit.token},
form: {
 "scm": "git",
"name": answers.reponame,
"is_private": answers.visibility === 'private' ? true : false,
"description": answers.description,
"language": answers.language,
}
}, function (err, res) {
 status.stop();

 if (err) {
 console.log(err);
 reject(new Error('Couldn\'t create remote repo.'));
 }

 let json = JSON.parse(res.body);

 if(res.statusCode == 400) {
 reject(new Error(json.error.message));
 }

 if (res.statusCode == 200) {
 console.log(chalk.green('\n' + json.name + ' created sucessfully.'));
console.log(chalk.green('You can view it here: ' + json.links.html.href + '\n'));

 resolve(json);
 }

});
