xml rpc creates partner but not lead

on 11/15/13, 12:45 PM 1,043 views

I have a script that works when creating a partner for xml-rpc using php, but I cant seem to create a lead using xml-rpc for php. Does anyone know how to create a lead using xml-rpc? Thank you

Dont use PHP, use Python instead

import xmlrpclib


sock = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy(url)

uid = sock.login("dbName", "userName", "userPassword")

url = "http://localhost:8069/xmlrpc/object"

sock = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy(url)

args = {'contact_name':"Python Lead2", 'email_from': "python@email.com", 'addMoreFields': "more data", }

lead_id = sock.execute('dbName', uid, 'userPassword', 'crm.lead','create', args)
