The documentation had an error in


The API /TDMModelService/api/ca/v1/objects for registering objects accepts multipart/form-data as the request body. Each request part (body, files) are of different content-type.

Swagger UI does not support providing this kind of request body, nor does Chrome Postman. There is another tool, SoapUI, which can be used to accomplish this.
