Post an Activity on a Lead (Async)

Posts an activity on a lead. Functionality is the same as the synchronous Post Activity on Lead API, with the following differences –

  1. API host is different, see Async API.
  2. The URL is slightly different (see API URL below).
  3. An additional x-api-key must be passed in the header, see Async APIContent-Type is application-json.
  4. Returns a RequestId parameter in the response. This must be passed in the Status API to get the status of the request.
