The examples below show how to create a new object with fields name and parent_id equal to New Object and 1 accordingly:

login=<...>
password=<...>
saymon_hostname=<...>
url=https://$saymon_hostname/node/api/objects

curl -X POST $url -u $login:$password \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -d @- <<EOF 
{
    "name": "New Object",
    "parent_id": "1"
}
EOF
let login = <...>
let password = <...>
let saymonHostname = <...>
let path = "/node/api/objects";
let auth = "Basic " + btoa(login + ":" + password);

let headers = new Headers();
headers.append("Content-Type", "application/json");
headers.append("Authorization", auth);

let data = JSON.stringify({
    "name": "New Object",
    "parent_id": "1"
});

let requestOptions = {
    method: "POST",
    headers: headers,
    body: data
};

fetch(saymonHostname + path, requestOptions)
    .then(response => response.text())
    .then(result => console.log(result))
    .catch(error => console.log("error", error));
const http = require("http");

let login = <...>
let password = <...>

    "hostname": saymonHostname,
    "headers": {
        "Authorization": auth,
        "Content-Type": "application/json"
    },
    "path": path
};

let req = http.request(options, function (res) {

        console.log(body.toString());
    });

    res.on("error", function (error) {
        console.error(error);
    });
});

let data = JSON.stringify({
    name: "New Object",
