The SOAP API suggests that articles can be associated with categories using Article Type__DataCategorySelection. I can't find information about using the REST API to do this and I've had no luck using sobjects/MongoDB_Article__DataCategorySelection. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I've been able to attach categories to article via REST API using the following endoint :


version of the API as well as TYPE must be specified depend on your needs.

HTTP POST method
Body properties :

  • dataCategoryName
  • DataCategoryGroupName
  • parentId (this is the article ID)

Don't know why there is still nothing explicit in Salesforce API doc
hope this will be helpfull
