Multiple record creation via Tulip API

Hello all,

There are many inquiries that customers would like to upload many records from a CSV or an Excel file. Tulip has a CSV import function, but we need to select each field to match before uploading. So, It’s difficult to upload a CSV file automatically.

If Tulip API can accept array of objects as POST method, we will be able to upload multiple records to a table at one transaction. Right now, we have to use Node-RED to read and send a line of a CSV file one by one.

Kind Regards,

A workaround is to build your json payload by transforming an array in string with delimiter as , « key » = we use it a lot for POST with array in the payload

Hello Youri,
Thank you for your answer, but I didn’t get it - can you please give an example of how a sample multi-record payload looks like?
And if possible, the code which generates it?

Thank you

Hello Youri,

I didn’t notice your post. Sorry. But I would like you to give us a sample of how to create msg.body for multiple records. I encountered 400 error when I put msg.body like below.

{“id”: “1”},
{“id”: “2”},
{“id”: “3”}

I am also curious about this. I thought the only way to create multiple records was multiple API requests. Certainly there is nothing in the API docs suggesting otherwise… I am using python, not node red. I think I know what you’re talking about as far as building a string with the comma delimiter, I have to do a similar construction for querying the database to find all records matching some list of ID’s.

Here is the code for anyone curious:

def list_format(id_list):
    """Creates a list of values that can be used in Tulip API requests
    with an isIn filter. Primarily intended for taking a list of IDs 
    connected to a test plan and returning all results from the 
    sample or Test Results table matching those IDs"""

    if len(id_list) != 0:
        id_list_string = ''

        for i in range(len(id_list)):

            if i == 0 and len(id_list):
                id_list_string += "[" + "\"" + id_list[i] + "\""
                id_list_string += f"\"{id_list[i]}\""

            if i != (len(id_list) -1):
                id_list_string += ","

            if i == (len(id_list) - 1):
                id_list_string += "]"

    return id_list_string

Then your parameter JSON would contain:

        parameters = {
