API 2.0 - Created segments will not honor tags

Avatar

Level 1

Howdy! I'm using the API to create a new segment and when the response comes back (as a 200), tags is just an empty array. Am I doing something wrong or is this some kind of bug with the API?

 

POST to https://analytics.adobe.io/api/kroger1/segments?expansion=tags

Also, it seems that no matter what ownerID I use, I am the owner of the segment created. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Payload:

 

{
  "name": "chris-test-segment",
  "description": "A segment created using the Adobe REST API",
  "rsid": "MYRSID",
  "owner": {
    "id": OWNERID
  },
  "definition": {
    "container": {
      "context": "hits",
      "func": "container",
      "pred": {
        "str": "my-test_A",
        "val": {
          "func": "attr",
          "name": "variables/evar171"
        },
        "func": "contains",
        "description": "AB Test: Groups (v171)"
      }
    },
    "func": "segment",
     "version": [

      0,

    ]
  },

Got the answer via GitHub - tagging segments upon creation is not supported and one must use the `/componentmetadata/tags` endpoint to tag newly created segments.

@sesamechicken  Can you try the same request on swagger UI as given below ? Make sure that all the required parameters are filled in proper format.

I've tried via Postman and the swagger docs. Both yield a 200 but an empty tag array.
