Notes

To create a component document, displayName extension and purpose are required properties.

Document purpose values are: -Design -Thumbnail -Reference -GalleryImage -TypeCatalog

Uploading Associated File

To complete the process, associated file should be uploaded to fileUrl (property in response) and a subsequent update document request should be made by setting 'available' property to true.

Associated Documents

Document with purpose Thumbnail, GalleryImage and TypeCatalog can have associated design document, this should be a valid Id of existing design document. PreviousVersionId is only valid for Design documents and requires a valid Id of an existing design document, in case a design document needs up-version. In case there are multiple versions of the design document, only one design document and it's corresponding thumbnail can be active.
