Creating a Record using the API requires specific syntax depending on whether you are using REST or SOAP. Use this table to find the syntax for your command.

NOTE: Total number of records in a single Response Pool may not be more than 255.

WARNING: Dyn recommends setting an explicit fallback record entry in all Traffic Director services to ensure a query is always answered with a record. See TD Best Practices – Fallback Entry for more information on setting up a fall back entry.
