I am trying to create a change management package using restful services. I didn't find how we can create a 'New Scenario' using restful. I see if the Scenario exists then we can use restful services to export.
I have a list of FEX/MASTER/HTML etc file names in excel and want to create a CM package for all those files through an automated process. I was looking at Restful service options to do this. But unfortunately, I did not find any info on how we can create a New Scenario for ChangeManagement, Add files to that Scenario and Save it before we export.
Anyone having any ideas please help me out.
Thanks in advance.

I built an integrated deployment system for and with one of my Customer. This was written on 8105m and is currently migrated to 8206.
Here is a high level description :
WebFOCUS Client systems have a Reporting Server installed on the same machine The application presents users with a list of domain/folders which they can transport the application creates a scenario.xml in the the export directory which is the "key driver" for change management then it uses a restfull call to export, and it uses ssh/scp to copy the package to the target system and runs a restfull call to import
The end result is that users who have access to this application can transport objects from one authorized system to another.
