Saving a new doctype entry without running validate

Hello so, I’m trying to add a bulk number of documents using a server api call, however whenever i run it for a certain doctype i get a 504 gateway timeout. I have reason to believe that its because the validate method on the document is taking time to execute. it there anyway to jump the validation step when i create a new doc. Thanks


depending on your exact needs, some combination of:

new_doc.flags.ignore_mandatory = True
new_doc.flags.ignore_validate = True

…should work.
