LiveConnectClient.PostAsync(String, IDictionary<String ,Object>) method

  string path, 
  IDictionary<String ,Object> body
)

Error codes

NameMeaning
ArgumentNullException

A parameter that was passed in is null.

Remarks

This is a helper function that makes an HTTP POST call to the Live Connect Representational State Transfer (REST) API.

PostAsync automatically uses the access token returned from user sign-in by the constructor, making it possible for a site to omit working directly with access tokens. If the access token cookie is set, PostAsync uses that as well.

Important  Before calling this method, your code must call either the LiveAuthClient.InitializeAsync or LiveAuthClient.LoginAsync method with, at minimum, the corresponding necessary scopes for [downloading | uploading | copying | deleting | reading | moving | creating | updating] the corresponding [data | files | file]. If you don’t, the call to this method may fail.
