Office 365 REST API – Adding a Contact with JSON in C#
|August 25, 2014||Posted by forumadmin under TechQns||
I am trying to use the Office API to sync contacts from a few different sources. I have been having a problem trying to make a POST request with my JSON object to create a new contact. I have been looking at the MSDN pages but I feel like I should clarify I’m relatively new to C#, this is my first time trying to use REST protocols, and async methods in C#.
I have my code below, I tried to create a class that will add a new contact with a hard coded JSON string. I have tried a few various ways of trying to complete this request. Every request I have attempted gives me a 401 or 400 Error. I left a couple lines that I felt were closest to the solution but if those are not on the right track I have no problem trying something else. There is also a function that I believe could be useful but I couldn’t really find documentation on how to use it:
Again I said I am pretty new to this so if there is a way to create an IContact item from the JSON and use the above method or to just pass the JSON directly either would be extremely useful. Even links to documentation that could be useful I would love to see. I’m a pretty stuck on this problem I’ve never posted a question before but I’m stumped on this.
Below is the documentation for the Contacts API maybe it will make more sense to you guys than me.
If anybody can figure out how to make a post request from that JSON it will be much appreciated.
