REST API: Create Object with References Example

Would it be possible to provide here or via the REST API documentation

an example of creating an object which includes a referencedObject attribute? 

I'm not overly sure what's required and haven't had luck with my tests.

Hi Chad,

This is an example where I set an object referenced:

  "objectTypeId": 10834,
  "attributes": [
      "objectTypeAttributeId": 90041,
      "objectAttributeValues": [
          "value": "Test object"
      "objectTypeAttributeId": 94875,
      "objectAttributeValues": [
          "value": "IN-247"

What you have to set as the value is the KEY for the object.

Best Regards

Thanks! Worked like a charm. 

Great :)
