Hi  All,
 
In Business central we are trying to create customer through API. In customer card of BC we are seeing nearly 50 fields
 
 
But in the API documentation I am seeing only the below fields 
 
 
How can I pass the remaining fields

    As I mentioned below, the page you open in BC and the page used by the API are not the same.
    For example, the Customer Card and Customer List pages are different, and the fields are also different.
    As of now, we cannot extend the API page. You need to customize a new API page.
    These contents have been mentioned in my blog, I suggest you read them again.

    Hi Yun SHU,gdrenteria 
     
    I feel the below code is to add the new field to standard table but if we see my above screen shot those fields are already added in business central. So I just want to access those fields both through get / post.
     
    I can extend the standard API but if I follow below approach then duplicate fields will be created in customer table right?
     
    For example Privacy blocked is already a field in customer table but if i follow below approach then Provacy blocked will add again  right ?
     
    Please excuse me with these questions. I am basically a salesforce developer and trying to do Integration between salesforce to BC
     
    Thanks

    Hi, the reason is very simple, because they are not the same page.
    page 30009 "APIV2 - Customers"

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks.
