POST Hierarchy

Modified on: Wed, 3 Apr, 2019 at 2:01 PM


Introduction

This API allows you to add new hierarchy levels in your existing Hierarchy.


Good to know

API response format:

Our APIs return data in either JSON or XML format (depending on request by .json or .xml).


Deleting hierarchy nodes:

You can only delete the lowest hierarchy nodes (nodes without children).


Referencing deleted hierarchy nodes:

Prior to deletion, please make sure any hierarchy nodes you want to delete are not referenced on survey records, report filters, campaigns, etc.

Failure to do so will result (but may not be limited to) the following:

  • For survey records; records will only show up for Global users
  • Report filters; this filter value will be ignored
  • Campaigns; no match will be found with templates having the deleted hierarchy node


Creating hierarchy

Parent is not required but when is not chosen it will go to Global by default
