API for Forum Post - Adjust userID & Creation Date
I'm looking at switching to freshdesk. One thing I'd like to do is transition an existing phpbb forum onto the discussion board format. Assuming I had the following:
1) Users migrated over (may use external SSO provider anyway).
2) Custom script for doing the migration.
The main problem I can't seem to solve is figuring out how one can create posts/comments via the API while controlling: (1) who the creator is, and (2) the creation date.
I need to specify arbitrary users I think when creating the topics, and also be able to set creation dates in the past. The current API doesn't seem to allow this? Is there some workaround?
