Create new project using sonar qube api

Want to know how to create new project using apis programmatically for a given repo.

Hello Sharad, welcome to the SonarSource Community!

The web API is documented within your SonarQube instance; in particular for your question have a look at <your SonarQube URL>/web_api/api/projects and you’ll see api/projects/create documented on that page.

Thanks, it really worked.
