How to add a picklist item through sData

Hi, does anyone know how I can add a new picklist item through sData?


I tried the following so far:



        private static void addProductFamilyToSaleslogix(string familyName, string picklistID)
                SDataService service = new SDataService(_url + "/slx/system/-/", _user, _password);

                SDataResourceCollectionRequest sdataCollection = new SDataResourceCollectionRequest(service)
                    ResourceKind = "pickLists",
                    QueryValues = {
                        {"where", "name eq 'Product Family'"},
                        {"select", "items/*"}

                AtomFeed feed = sdataCollection.Read();
                AtomEntry tempEntry = feed.Entries.First();
                SDataPayload payload = (SDataPayload)tempEntry.GetSDataPayload();
                SDataPayloadCollection picklistitems = (SDataPayloadCollection)payload.Values["items"];

                var family = new SDataPayload
                    ResourceName = "pickListItem",
                    Values = { 
                { "text", familyName }

                //picklistitems.Insert(picklistitems.Count, family);

                var entry = new AtomEntry();

                var request = new SDataSingleResourceRequest(service, entry) { ResourceKind = "pickLists" };
                request.ResourceSelector = string.Format("'{0}'", payload.Key);
                AtomEntry result = request.Update();
            catch (Exception ex)
                logger.Error(ex.Message, ex);

No idea.....and hopefully the user is ALWAYS the Admin......(you are aware of the implications if not?)


Seems to me you might need to populate the (int)  ID, ShortText fields as well.....
