Create DataShape via EntityService - missing?

Hi,

I am looking for a service call to create a DataShape. It seems this is missing in the EntityServices. I've seen this question asked before but could not find an answer.

My use case is that I have an external application that has definitions for various device types with a different set of sampling variables each. I would like to create a ThingTemplate for each device model and a DataShape matching the defined variables programmatically via the REST API or a service call. I can do everything except for creating a DataShape it seems.

Going further this missing DataShape prevents me from defining a Stream for device instances with that DataShape. It seems Streams can only be defined with a specific DataShape selected. Manual definition of the DataShape via the Composer is not an option. We're blocked at this point.

Are there any work arounds or solutions? Much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Dwight,

In the next release, functionality has been added to programmatically create DataShapes.

Thanks Adam!
