Bulk Create items possible?

We have built an application which builds a folder structure hierarchy in ShareFile.

It is looping through the folders, and children folders.

Each time it's calling the ShareFile SDK CreateFolder method.

Since it's a long task, we occasionally get timeouts. I am also suspecting ShareFile also have API calls limitation? (DDOS prevention?)

We are on SDK 3.3.1597, there doesn't appear to be a Bulk Create endpoint.

It will save time, if we can build the tree object on our end, and send the object in one call.

Is this even possible?

If not, is there a work around for this?

Calvin,

Is the folder structure consistent?  I use templates to create from and then unassociate from the template after successful creation.

Thanks Keith, that's what I ended up doing.

Do you happen to know a quick way of retrieving the folder structures including its children without recursively iterate?

It is taking a hit on our performance.
