Create a category using yellowfin API

Hi

I am trying to use yellowfin web service API to create a new category, i have the following code, please help me on what i am doing wrong here

AdministrationServiceRequest rsr = new AdministrationServiceRequest();
AdministrationServiceResponse rs = null;

rsr.setLoginId(adminUserName);
rsr.setPassword(adminUserPassword);
rsr.setOrgId(new Integer(1));

rsr.setFunction("TESTIMPORTCONTENT");
rsr.setParameters(new String[] { parameters });
try {
AdministrationPerson adminPerson = new AdministrationPerson();
adminPerson.setUserId(userEmail);
AdministrationServiceService ts = getAdministrationServiceService();
AdministrationServiceSoapBindingStub rssbs = (AdministrationServiceSoapBindingStub) ts
.getAdministrationService();
// rsr.setPerson(adminPerson);
ArrayList importOptions = new ArrayList();
ImportOption importOption = new ImportOption();
importOption.setItemIndex(0);
importOption.setOptionKey("SKIP");
importOption.setOptionValue("false");
importOptions.add(importOption);

importOption = new ImportOption();
importOption.setItemIndex(1);
importOption.setOptionKey("OPTION");
importOption.setOptionValue("ADD");
importOptions.add(importOption);

rsr.setImportOptions(importOptions.toArray(new ImportOption[0]));

rs = rssbs.remoteAdministrationCall(rsr);
log.debug(rs.getStatusCode());
log.debug(rs.getImportIssues().length);

Hi,

with the TESTIMPORTCONTENT (and IMPORTCONTENT) webservice functions you can either create a new category if the new category is included as part of the export XML file, in which case you must use the IMP prefix as described in our documentation:

or you can use a category that already exists in the repository, in which case you must use the CAT prefix:

If you are interested, the above screenshots were taken from the the link "6.1 WebServices documentation" which is found towards the bottom of this other forum post.
