How do I get a ticket id once I have created a new ticket

I'd like to display a link to the lighthouse ticket in my app once the ticket has been created.

I'm using PHP and this is my code

 $curl = curl_init();
    curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url );
    curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $this->lighthouse[ 'user' ] . ':' . $this->lighthouse[ 'password' ] );
    curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array( "Content-Type: application/xml", "X-LighthouseToken: " . $this->lighthouse[ 'token' ], "Content-length: " . strlen( $xml ) ) );
    curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1 );
    curl_setopt( $curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $xml );
    $curlData = array(
        'errno' => curl_errno ( $curl ),
        'error' => curl_error ( $curl ),
        'header' => curl_getinfo ( $curl ),
        'http_code' => curl_getinfo ( $curl, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE )
    $result = curl_exec( $curl );`

It creates the tickets successfully, do I now have to GET tickets.xml and assume that the last ticket in there is my ticket?

    Hi Mike,

    If the create is successful, you do get the full ticket back in the response, which is the same as doing a GET. So you would have the ticket number, URL, etc.

    Also, you can use JSON too. You don't have to use XML.

    Thanks Julien, I was using XML and didn't see anything in the response ($curlData and $result in my code)

    I'll switch over to JSON, I prefer that anyway as I can switch to using jquery instead of curl.
