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

For those of us who prefer JSON objects, it sure would be nice to be able to POST/PUT JSON instead of xml. I'm hoping I'm wrong, but it appears that while you can request information as JSON you can't put data back into the JSS from JSON.

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?

Not as highly requested as other things, unfortunately. Upcount not high enough to pop onto their radar.

Vote count isn't the only criteria that gets stuff on their radar. I've seen things implemented with 1 or 2 votes or even negative votes!

Would still love to see this implemented by Jamf though.

I would still love to see Jamf implement this but it looks like the new uAPI will be taking over which supports JSON and more likely than not we are not going to see something this major implemented in the classic API. Given that information and that the new API supports only JSON, the folks here may be interested in this request to get XML support:
