JamfPro API creating a new policy

New Contributor II


I have a question regarding the policy creation endpoint. It specifies that you need to supply the ID of the new policy, however if I supply it 0, it'll just automatically find out what the previous max ID was and increment it by one. Which is fine, but my question is: Why do I have to put in an ID number for this when I can simply supply it with 0? Isn't it simpler to just have a policies endpoint that you can post to?

I my experience Jamf has wanted -1 to create a new object like a policy.  You might want to look at the Jamf-upload repo https://github.com/grahampugh/jamf-upload for examples.
