I am able to POST custom document types to the REST API. The document is created, but only the standard fields are populated. The custom fields are unceremoniously dropped. There is no error in the logs, no error is reported by the web service.
I've tried adding &classnames=MT.Exhibitor (my custom document type code name) to no avail. I've made sure that the field names (XML nodes) I am using are the same as those returned by a query.
What's the trick, why is there no error?
Resolved thanks to support. They should also be updating the docs.
It turns out you need to set NodeClassID when submitting a (custom) document type with fields that are particular to it.
