There is a new, experimental Service Desk REST method that allows you to create customers:

    "email": "",
    "fullName": "Fred F. User"

I am trying to create a customer using this experimental method and have no success with it.

Neither "X-ExperimentalApi : true" nor "X-ExperimentalApi : opt-in" helps and Service Desk still returns 404.

The method:

Hey All,

I try with that API but while creating a new customer in response there is a field called "KEY" which bound an alphanumeric value, not an email id.

Can anyone help me out?Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 5.36.47 PM.png
