Creating Rows

Example data

To get started, we prepare a sheet named Cities as below:

| | A | B | C | D | |-|---|---|---|---| |1| name | state | country | population | |2| | | | |


Please prepare the same data as above in a new (or existing) spreadsheet. You will need to use your Spreadsheet ID as descibed in Getting Started in example codes.

Add a row

To create a new row in Cities sheet, send a POST request to that sheet API endpoint containing the contents of the row.

curl "" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY" \
-H "X-Spreadsheet-Id: YOUR_SPREADSHEET_ID" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"name": "San Francisco", "state": "CA", "country": "USA", "population": "860000"}'
const fetch = require('isomorphic-fetch');
fetch("", {
  method: "POST",
  headers: {
    "Authorization": "Bearer YOUR_API_KEY",
    "X-Spreadsheet-Id": "YOUR_SPREADSHEET_ID",
    "Content-Type": "application/json"
  body: JSON.stringify({name: 'San Francisco', state: 'CA', country: 'USA', population: 860000})
}).then(r => r.json())
.then(result => console.log(result))

When the creation is successful, the HTTP response is a 201 Created and response body is a JSON object containing the rowIndex of the newly created row:

  "rowIndex": 2,
  "name": "San Francisco", 
  "state": "CA", 
  "country": "USA",
  "population": "860000"
The sheet content should look like below:

| |A | B | C | D | |-|-------------|--|---|------| |1|name|state|country|population |2|San Francisco|CA|USA|860000
