Good morning,
I have a WordPress website with an formidable plugin installed. My goal is to add entries from a Symfony application using the formidable API.
I've managed to post a simple input entry successfully, but I've encountered a challenge with repeaters. Would you like to help me?"
Thank you.

Because repeater fields are in reality embedded forms, they'll have a different form id. You have to add rows directly to the repeater.

<p>What do you mean by 'directly to the repeater'? Is there no solution available via an API? Even when I bind 'item_parent_item,' the entries of the repeater do not appear in the main entry.</p>

You misunderstood me. I didn't say not to use the API. Repeaters have their own form id. Instead of using form id 2 in your code, use the form id for the repeater.
