Rest api endpoint to create a folder in forked repository.

Hey @Sravya Nalla and welcome to the Community!

You can leverage the Create a commit by uploading a file endpoint to commit the files you want using the rest API.

Following is an example API request to that endpoint using curl :

Thank you, @Sravya Nalla !
