The scenario we have is that our users want to set the Author on a Record, just using a name, through our application. We are integrating with RM8 using the ServiceAPI
I can set the Author property on a record happily using the .NET wrapper around the ServiceAPI, and use the FindBy property on the LocationRef to perform a search for a user.
However the problem comes when there is no user with that name - the Post fails with an argument exception.
Is there any way to have the serviceAPI create the location if not present ?
I have seen the GUI do something similar when I imported an email, it created a location for the Sender automatically - it's something similar we would like to do ?
Otherwise I will have to make extra calls - to search for the location, and if not present create it , then setup the location ref.
Thanks for any suggestions
