I am currently working on StandardValueSet and I would like to try to insert an entry in the said resource. I looked at the documentation and it sort of lacks the necessary information for me to be able to perform a POST request. I am looking for the information like what would be the payload form and contents.

Referred documentation from Tooling API: StandardValueSet

Am I missing something? Or is there a better documentation for this?


I was able to get a response by doing a GET call to this URL:


So I guess the payload for the POST call would be the Metadata part of the response? The problem is I can't find a field which I need from the response. I need the StatusCode field which is present in the SOQLXplorer.

What am I missing? Thanks.

    Query the resource to see the payload, then try creating a new one based on that. Update your question with details of your attempt if you're still stuck. – identigral Aug 19 at 17:15
  • I would use the metadataAPI – cropredy Aug 19 at 17:54
  • @identigral Hi. I've updated my question and I'm a little stuck right now. Maybe you could help me? Thanks! – Oneb Aug 27 at 0:32
  • @Oneb Not sure what SOQLXplorer is showing you but there's no StatusCode field in StandardValueSet – identigral Aug 27 at 1:15
  • @identigral If you are in SOQLXplorer and you went to the ContractStatus table, there is a StatusCode field. I wanted to insert a record in it using toolingAPI POST Rest call in StandardValueSet. Am I on the right track? Or I got it all mixed up? – Oneb Aug 27 at 2:11
