Issue/Introduction

How can we use WSAPI to create a User along with uploading his Profile Image file?

Environment

Release:
Component: ACSAAS

Let's use WSAPI to create the User and ProfileImage objects. These are two separate objects whereas the User references the ProfileImage. Therefore, we shall first create the ProfileImage object, then use its ObjectID to set it to our new User.
