Adding providers across REST API

I wrote code to adding providers and it is work


$username = “admin”; $password = “Admin123”;

$lines = file(‘C:\Users\User\Desktop\providers.csv’);

foreach ($lines as $line) {

$params = explode(";", $line);

$test2 = array( array(‘givenName’=>$params[0], ‘familyName’=>$params[1])


$test = array( ‘names’=> $test2, ‘gender’ => $params[2] ‘’ ); $provider = array( ‘identifier’=>‘doctor’, ‘person’=>$test ); // echo json_encode($provider);

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://blablabla/openmrs/ws/rest/v1/provider'); 

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, “$username:$password”); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array( ‘Content-Type: application/json’ )); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($provider)); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, ‘Mozilla/5.0’);

$res = curl_exec($curl); echo $res; }


My problem is that I want to add another type of attribute (locationID) for the provider and associate them. But in the API documentation here absent LocationID for providers. As I understand, I should create a new class for location and change the database. Please tell me which modules I should change and in which places or if there are alternative solutions.

@kuanysh use the “attributes” property for that. Here is an example:

OK, thanks for help! I think that it will turn out
