Articles must be created with fs_create with essential metadata. Then you can add files with fs_upload, add categories, tags or authors with fs_add_categories or fs_add_tags fs_add_authors. Authors not registered with a FigShare id can be created with fs_create_author. You can edit the original metadata with fs_update. Finally, release the article as either private or public with fs_make_private or fs_make_public. Before creating the article, you must authenticate using fs_auth.
