Assign topics or messages when created via API

(Tobias Eigen) #1

I’d like to be able to create messages that are assigned to specific users. Is this something that is possible already and I am missing something, or that you would consider adding?

I am not seeing reference to the assign plugin in the API docs. Seems to me an e.g. assigned_to=usernname should be an option.

The background to this is that I am using discourse as a ticket system, using @angus’s Tickets Plugin 🎟. The easiest way for me to allow members to create tickets is to create a gravity form in wordpress that creates the message in discourse. I know this can work and I have the rest of it lined up, just not the ability to assign tickets to specific users upon creation.

To assign a topic you issue an API request after creating the topic. For the request format, please read How to reverse engineer the Discourse API
