Hi there,

I am trying to create a new zone using the REST API, and I am getting a
very generic error message saying *{ "error": "Creating domain
'testdomain.com <http://testdomain.com>.' failed" }*

Can someone please advise if the following JSON is valid or not?

POST to http://<pdns server ip>/api/v1/servers/localhost/zones

  "id": "testdomain.com.",
  "name": "testdomain.com.",
  "type": "Zone",
  "url": "/servers/localhost/zones/testdomain.com",
  "kind": "Native",
  "rrsets": [
      "name": "www.testdomain.com.",
      "type": "A",
      "ttl": 0,
      "changetype": "REPLACE",
      "records": [
          "content": "",
          "disabled": false,
          "set-ptr": false
  "serial": 1,
  "notified_serial": 0,
  "masters": [],
  "nameservers": [

System details:

   - CentOS 7 with pdns-4.1.3-1pdns.el7.x86_64
   - Bind backend

Appreciate any help.
