Create a Prescription object

Here, we'll create a Prescription object. We'll set the object label to "Prescription" and the name to "prescription." Note that all custom objects and property names are automatically prefixed with c_ to help prevent collisions with standard objects and properties. So although we provide the name prescription, it will become c_prescription after saving.

The object's plural name

Now the Prescription object has been created. All of the details were provided while creating the object except for one detail: Plural Name. The plural name is generated automatically. Use the plural name when referencing your object via the API (for example, GET /c_prescriptions).
Now you're ready to add properties to the custom object.
