  "external_customer_id": "f849111b-c6c8-4774-be27-a4b4615429a3",

}

You should store the customer_id value as this will be used as primary identified for this Customer record in subsequent API requests.

Each Customer resource will always create relevant KYC resource based on its company_country value. See our page on KYC Information for details.
