Create a category and add it to a categorization project

To create a category in a specified categorization project, you supply the path from the parent to the category, including the category you want to add. You can include an optional name field, although Tamr Core does not save it and instead uses the last value for the path key as the name of the category.

  "name": "Tier Two Category",
  "path": [
    "Tier One Category",
    "Tier Two Category"

Note: Each of the parent categories, at every level of your hierarchy, must already exist in the project for this action to succeed.

On success, the response is the complete JSON object of category information. See Get the categories of a categorization project.
