REST API - Multi record insert in one call

FileMaker 16 Data API Guide

 

REST API can support all the way to playing with filemaker table records which is good. at the same time, there is no possibility to insert multiple record in one API query.

 

For example if I want to add 5 students (5records ) to CLASS A(Table) then I need to use API query for 5 times(which is 5 calls to database). which is leading to slow performance and its not right way to communicate database.

 

I believe FileMaker should allow multi-record insert(create) option in one API call. As I checked above API guide, its not possible now..   Someone from this community can help me to insert multiple records in one call. OR any alternate ways ? 

 

Thanks in advance for your time
