Unable to create a tenant via API, says not a valid uuid

Hi, I am trying to add a tenant using the tenant API in Wazo_authd.
Which Tenant UUID should I pass in the request and in the Wazo-Tenant Header?
Currently I have tried passing an existing tenant uuid in Wazo-Tenant header (considering this would make the existing tenant a parent to the new tenant) and a random uuid in the request parameter. But I get an error “Not a valid uuid”.

Following is my request and response:

curl -X POST --header ‘Content-Type: application/json’ --header ‘Accept: application/json’ --header ‘Wazo-Tenant: 6118e18b-17e2-49ef-a59c-0759063b9548’ --header ‘X-Auth-Token: f915eb8d-694b-4809-81cf-acb29481fade’ -d ‘{ \

Is it your master tenant? Why do you create a tenant with the same uuid from the master tenant?

Hi @quintana ,
Sorry I was getting confused. I was confused between the UUID to be entered in the header and in the body.
I figured out that in the the header I had to enter Parent UUID and in the body I have to enter a unique UUID for the new tenant to be created.

Hello, Wazo-Tenant in the header is to permit to control children tenant from a parent tenant. So if your token is from a master tenant and you want to create a new tenant from master tenant, you don’t need to add the header. Our tenant mechanism is nested tenant. So you have the capacity to address Master Tenant → Tenant 1 and from Tenant 1 → Tenant 1 Bis and from Tenant 1 → Tenant 1 Ter. If you don’t put the uuid on the body the tenant is generated. So i think you probably don’t need it.

Hope this help you

Thanks @quintana , for the detailed explanation. It makes is clear. I was also assuming that UUID should be auto generated by Wazo, it makes much more sense.
