Issue creating Customer BO instance

I had the Customer.Create() method released to one of my client's test tenants.

I'm almost done with a full-blown integration to their platform, but I can't get the Customer.Create() method to work.

query_customer = Customer.QueryByIdentification; query_customer_selparam = query_customer.CreateSelectionParams(); query_customer_selparam.Add(query_customer.InternalID , "I", "EQ", this.UserID); query_customer_result = query_customer.Execute(query_customer_selparam);

if (query_customer_result.Count() == 0) { CustomerBO = Customer.Create(); CustomerBO.InternalID = this.UserID; CustomerBO.CurrentCommon.Organisation.Name.FirstLineName = this.UserName.content; }

What am I missing to create the customer? Is it the CategoryCode?

    Hi Judson,

    as of FP3.5 we have a PSM docu that includes example ABSL scripts for all BO that are write enabled. Please check out the PSM docu in the business center:

    In your Customer the type code is missing, it is mandantory:

    import AP.FO.BusinessPartner.Global;

    import AP.FO.Address.Global;

    // define root node

    var elCustomerRoot: elementsof Customer;

    var newCustomer;

    // define common node - person

    var elCustomerPerson: elementsof Customer.Common.Person;

    //create root instance and set parameter CategoryCode.

    // CategoryCode = "1" = Person,

    // CategoryCode = "2" = Organization.

    elCustomerRoot.CategoryCode = "1";

    newCustomer = Customer.Create(elCustomerRoot);

    Please find the complete script in the PSM docu.

    A comment on Billys comment above: There are BOs in the PSM that are write-enabled, other BOs are read-enabled only.

      This thread is a perfect Example of a BO that is "Write Enabled" however Create is not allowed... and the PSM documentation does not inform you of such... and Why I suggest adopting more of a CRUD schema for telling Developers what is and is not allowed.

      If something is not "completely write-enabled" then shouldn't the documentation reflect such limitations. It really makes it hard to scope a customization or add-on without proper knowledge of the Actual Status of a BO in the PSM
