Create an objective

Create an objective using the following: https://api.totango.com/api/v3/objectives.

  • Replace APP_TOKEN with your authentication token.
  • Replace account-id with the account id.
  • Replace objective-status-id and objective-category-id with the ids obtained from the methods above (read objective status and read objective category).
  • If you provide the successPlays property and it is empty, the system will delete all the links to the SuccessPlays. If you don't want to change linked SuccessPlays, don't include successPlays property in the request. The SuccessPlays that choose to include in the "successPlays" property will be the ones to link to the objective instance. 

Example with empty "successPlays" value (no links)

curl --location 'https://api.totango.com/api/v3/objectives/' \
--header 'app-token: APP_TOKEN \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
    "accountId": "account-id",
    "startDate": "2024-02-08T20:10:00.000Z",
    "endDate": "2024-02-28T20:10:00.000Z",
    "categoryId": "objective-category-id",
    "statusId": "objective-status-id",
    "title": "Drive more promoters on G2",
    "description": "Launch customer advocacy program with G2 requests",
    "successPlays": []
}'

Example with "successPlays" value (add links)

curl --location 'https://api.totango.com/api/v3/objectives/' \
--header 'app-token: APP_TOKEN \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{

    "categoryId": "objective-category-id",
