Creating new Employees

You can create new Employees by sending a POST request with the corresponding request body to the /employees endpoint. The only required fields are as follows:

  • External_id in the request body: corresponds with the unique ID in your system
  • Language query parameter: language of the input data, which has an impact on the skill extraction
  • Strict query parameter: by setting this to false, you can add employees without skill information. This is necessary for this tutorial since the skill information will only follow in the subsequent steps.


Submit a POST call to /employees?strict=false&language=auto with the following body:

  "external_id": "101"
