If errors occur, the data source is not created.

The length of the Parent parameter cannot exceed 260 characters; otherwise, a SOAP exception is thrown with the error code rsItemLengthExceeded.

The Parent parameter cannot be null or empty or contain the following reserved characters: : ? ; @ & = + $ , \ * > < | . ". You can use the forward slash character (/) to separate items in the full path name of the folder, but you cannot use it at the end of the folder name.
