Create Developer

Creates a profile for a developer in an organization. Once created, the developer can register an app and receive an API key.


The developer is always created with a status of active. To set the status explicitly, use Set Developer Status.


When creating a developer, you can define one or more monetization attributes as custom attributes. For example:

   "email" : "developer_email",
   "firstName" : "first_name",
   "lastName" : "last_name",
   "userName" : "user_name",
   "attributes" : [{    
      "name": "MINT_BILLING_TYPE",
      "value": "one of PREPAID | POSTPAID"

For more information about the monetization attributes, see Defining monetization attributes.
