(I did look here: https://api.inflectra.com/Spira/Services/v4_0/RestService.aspx)

* identify the project ID (done; list all projects)

* find the folder ID by name (not done. This might be one of...

* list all folders in the project, and search by name to find the ID (not implemented?)

* search folder by name and get the ID (not implemented?)

* add the test case: projects/{project_id}/test-cases?parent_test_folder_id={parent_test_folder_id}

How the hot fudge do we find out that test folder ID?

Thanks, your product is really great, we love it

You can get all the folders (names, IDs, etc.) with:
