Error when creating customer with ID using REST

Error when creating customer with ID using REST

Hi.

 

I'm trying to create a customer in Magento 2.0 via REST. But when I specify the ID I get an error. Creating customers and letting Magento set the ID works fine, but I want do deside what the customer ID should be. Is this really not possible? In Magento 1.9 this works btw. Smiley Happy

 

This works:

POST:

{
  "customer": {
     "email": "info@mail.com",
    "firstname": "myfirstname",
    "lastname": "mylastname"
  }
}

 

Response is then: (Customer was created with ID nr 6)

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<response>
  <id>6</id>
  <group_id>1</group_id>
  <created_at>2015-12-30 13:35:19</created_at>
  <updated_at>2015-12-30 13:35:19</updated_at>
  <created_in>Default Store View</created_in>
  <email>info@mail.com</email>
  <firstname>myfirstname</firstname>
  <lastname>mylastname</lastname>
  <store_id>1</store_id>
  <website_id>1</website_id>
  <addresses/>
  <disable_auto_group_change>0</disable_auto_group_change>
</response>

 

But if I try to create the customer by setting the ID to 4711 I get the error:

{
  "customer": {
    "id": "4711",
    "email": "info2@mail.com",
    "firstname": "myfirstname2",
    "lastname": "mylastname2"
  }
}

 

Response is then:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<response>
  <message>No such entity with %fieldName = %fieldValue, %field2Name = %field2Value</message>
  <parameters>
    <fieldName>email</fieldName>
    <fieldValue>info2@mail.com</fieldValue>
    <field2Name>websiteId</field2Name>
    <field2Value>1</field2Value>
  </parameters>
</response>

I tried without "" but same error:

{
  "customer": {
    "id": 4711,
    "email": "info2@mail.com",
    "firstname": "myfirstname2",
    "lastname": "mylastname2"
  }
}

 

PS I use RESTClient in Firefox.

Re: Error when creating customer with ID using REST

This is an old post, but you don't add the id when you are creating a customer.

This value will be generated for you and delivered to you in the response.

 

btw: I am still using 1.9x.
