Add Ability to POST/PUT using JSON via the JSS API

You are correct in this assumption. It's simply partially implemented. I went around in loops for a couple days trying to commit JSON coded data back to the database.

JSON is the lingua franca of RESTful API's, this is overdue.

Why type the same tag twice? That's what I say. :)

This is still highly requested. Any ETA or mention on JAMF side as to if this will happen at all?
