Creating a New List


A new Contact list is created by making an HTTP POST to the collection URI.{username}/lists


The POST body must contain an Atom entry element that includes the content for the new list. The Content-Type of the request must be set to application/atom+xml. Here is a representative entry:


<entry xmlns="">
<author />
<content type="application/vnd.ctct+xml">
<ContactList xmlns="">
<Name>A New List</Name>
