Hello Team,
i read api documentation to create portfolios through api. good to know that we can create multiple portfolios in hierarchical form. i have 2 query

1- Do you have any sample xml file which i can take as reference. if yes, please share.

2- what will happen i try to create a portfolio (using xml) which already exit ? api will return error or it will simply ignore and create rest of portfolios?


I believe when you upload an XML file it overlays the existing structure. So there’s no problem with re-defining a portfolio.

As to an example file, just set up a small hierarchy & export it -> sample file.
