How do you create a folder in document library. I got this code right now but getting error code 403 FORBIDDEN

public void createFolder(String digest) throws ClientProtocolException, IOException {
    HttpPost request = new HttpPost(
    request.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json;odata=verbose");
    request.addHeader("X-RequestDigest", digest);
    request.addHeader("Accept", "application/json;odata=verbose");
    CloseableHttpResponse response = httpClient.execute(target, request, context);
    System.out.println("STATUS CODE: " + response.getStatusLine());
  • The documentation states that a site relative url will work, strange that it does not here. Have you tried a server relative url or the method here?
