Create a resource

put

/rest/ofscCore/v1/resources/{resourceId}

This operation creates a new resource. If the specified resource already exists, then the operation erases the existing resource properties and replaces them with the properties specified in the request.

The specified resource must be assigned to one or more users in Oracle Field Service Cloud.

All custom properties (except file properties) can be sent in the request in the same way as the built-in properties. The maximum character length for custom properties of type 'string' is 65535 characters. If the character length exceeds the limit, then only the first 65535 characters are saved and the rest are ignored.
