    Setting authors and creation dates for imported discussion threads

    mahiro

      I'm trying to import external data into Jive as discussion threads using the REST API (/contents and /messages). The problem is that the author names and creation dates are automatically assigned at the time of import, and there seem no ways to overwrite usernames/timestamps based on the original data.

       

      Are there any recommended ways to import data with intended usernames/timestamps - either by adding contents first with REST and then overwrite the values, or by adding contents through a plugin-implemented webservice, or any other ways?
