4. Creating Checks

Now that you have learned how to retrieve checking history, it's time to learn how to actually create a check. To understand the checking process better, we will explain the process of checking submissions with the API in this section.

Endpoint for creating a new check

First Step: Creating a new check

Creating a check is the first step in checking submissions. Before we can start uploading or starting checking, we must create a check. We will have to give the check a name and specify the programming language.

When sending the request, we will need to POST two variables:

name - Name the check (string: min 3 char, non-unique)
language - The programming language (string: java, c-cpp, python, csharp, txt)

				curl -X POST \
  https://codequiry.com/api/v1/check/create?name=Test%20Check&language=python \
  	-H 'Accept: */*' \
  	-H 'apikey:  YOUR_API_KEY_HERE '

How to think of the checking process

Now that you have learned how to create a check, it's time to learn how to upload files to the newly created check. Think of creating a check being like creating a folder. Now that you have created the folder, we can now upload submissions to them.
