Create Sample Item

In this example we are creating an item.

We posted it to the URL: https://<instance>.coupahost.com/api/items

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<item>
   <active>true</active>
   <description>Example API Created Item</description>
   <item-number>ExpAPI1001</item-number>
   <name>Example API Item 1001</name>
   <commodity>
      <name>IT</name>
   </commodity>
   <uom>
      <code>EA</code>
   </uom>
   <reorder-alerts />
</item>

Below is the response that I received back when I posted the above:
