This is a PowerShell v2 script that performs a simple customer creation action on the desk.com API and outputs the status text. Either "created" if the customer has been created or "Unprocessable Entity" if a customer with the same email already exists.
function createCustomer($first_name, $last_name, $title, $background, $email) {
$subdomain = "your-site-subdomain"
$username = "your@username.com"
$password = "YoUrPaSsWoRd"
$body = @"
{
"first_name": "$first_name",
"last_name": "$last_name",
"title": "$title",
"background": "$background",
"emails": [{
"type": "home",
"value": "$email"
}]
}
"@
$http_request = New-Object -ComObject Msxml2.XMLHTTP
$http_request.open("POST", "https://" + $subdomain + "/api/v2/customers", $false)
$http_request.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/json")
$http_request.setRequestHeader("Content-length", $body.length)
$http_request.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + [System.Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($username+":"+$password)))
$http_request.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close")
