    REST API JSON Documentation

    Alex Bowden

      Hello all,


      Does anyone know where I can find documentation on what Tableau expects from a JSON payload when using the REST API?


      We are using Tableau Server 10.5, so API version 2.8. I have been referencing this documentation. I am successful when submitting a GET request and passing the appropriate parameters, but POST requests al all returning "Error 400000: Payload is either malformed XML/JSON or incomplete"


      Specifically where I am seeing the error is in the "Create Schedule" call, but I imagine that this error will persist with similar calls until I can find how Tableau expects the JSON formatted.


      I can submit XML just fine and create the schedule and even get the response from that call in JSON by passing the correct header information. To me this indicates that I am passing the wrong keys in the call.
