Help with Create Character

I am having some troubles with the Create character method, it keeps telling me that the author must be specified/it is not a player on the campaign.

The API section of the documentation doesn't state that the author must be specified in the request, anyway I have tried including the author node too without look.

The author I am specifying its my user, which is the owner of the campign and DM.

This is how my request body looks like and the error I am getting:

{"character":
{"name":"Test",
"author":
{
"id":"7d92dfb8f24211dfba8140403656340d",
"profile_url":"http:\/\/www.obsidianportal.com\/profile\/Ragnarol",
"username":"Ragnarol"
},
"bio":"Bioo",
"description":"Test",
"game_master_info":"Test",
"tagline":"Test TagLine"}
}

{"errors":[{"code":4010,"message":"Author is not a member of that campaign"},{"code":4010,"message":"Author can't be blank"}],"http_status":400}

Maybe the Author must be placed in the envelope, along the character node?

I am not having troubles with the create Wiki method, so I am sure the authentication and request URL its fine.

Thanks in advance!

    Thanks to Steve (shammond42) I finally got this working. I was missing the "author_id" parameter on the request.

    I would add this to te Character API documentation ;)
