Creating Clients

Use the create method to create a client entry (i.e. a recipient) with an EXT_USER_ID attribute (an external ID) to further add them to broadcasts. If the request is successful, you will receive a response with code 200 from the server.

Pay attention to this code block:

{
"address": "any_string",
"type": "EXT_USER_ID"
}

This block contains the identifier that you can use to refer to the client’s entry to further update or remove it. In the address variable, you can specify any string: phone number, internal identifier, UUID, etc. You must take note of the identifier and store it by yourself, otherwise you will not be able to update or remove the entry.
