I'm attemping to load a layer into Geoserver from a PostGIS database using cURL. It works, but I also need to set the bounding box to -180,-90,180,90. Does anyone know how to add the bounding box to the below command?

curl -v -u xxx:xxx -X POST -H "Content-type: text/xml" -d "<featureType><name>Airports</name></featureType>" http://xxx.xx.com:8080/geoserver/rest/workspaces/PostGIS/datastores/PostGIS/featuretypes

Thanks for your help!
