Trailhead - Create an Account Using REST API and Workbench TWICE

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Could not find an account named 'Blackbeards Grog Emporium' created from Workbench with the Description 'The finest grog in the seven seas.'

I have created it twice: (I have to use localhost/workbench MAMP due to my company security policy)

Yes this really strange. I also tested same. After executing same request twice its working fine.
 
{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}
Look like . is missing in your request body

 Let us know if this will help you

Thanks Amit for swift reply I actually thought about this dot on the way. On 3rd attempt with "." Challenge is passed.
If I may ask you one more thing I get this error when I try to login through https://workbench.developerforce.com/login.php I get this error messeage (even from my private laptop)

I got this gut feeling that this has to do with one of security trails, becasue I don't recall blocking Connected App
Workbench. I got some transaction security settings from that trail but that's all.

Thanks once again and good night.

@Gbolahan Jolapamo
It's because may be you have created two items. Suggest you to delete those records and make a fresh account and description as I have mentioned above.
Thanks,
Nilotpal Roy.

Each time when create a Account you are generating a duplicate, usig:
{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

You are not filling the description field, you can verify manually in Ligthin looking for the Account, to pass you have to fill the description manually!!

Hai,
I have done this challange. First How do we this? Go to the workbench via this link  https://workbench.developerforce.com . Next Login to your salesforce org with username and password. After choose the REST Explorer from utilities dropdown. Then select a radio button as POST of HTTP method. Below enter the format /services/data/vxx.0/sobjects/account. Put the codes
{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "Description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

in the Request Body.
To execute the services click on Execute button and Successfully created a account with description.

Note: go to your account created page in your org. Click on EDIT button at the right hand side to account name "Blackbeards Grog Emporium". 
verify the description, that is shown wrong description like "New Description". Please change to "The finest grog in the seven seas."  and save the account.

Showing wrong text (description)


Finally, go on dive to your trailhead. click your "check challenge to earn 500 points" again. Got it 500 points. you are in appy mood now.

Hi,

    I had the same problem, the issue with you is that you missed the '.' in the end of the description line after the word 'seas'

Thank you
