API internal error when trying to update item link column

Hi all,

I’m getting an “internal error” when trying to create an item and inserting a linked item column value through the API while doing so. You can see the details of my column values string below:

“{“date4”:{“date”:“1981-04-02”},“location”:“29.9772962 31.1324955 Giza Pyramid Complex”,“connect_boards”:[1112525338],“timeline”:{“from”:“2021-03-01”,“to”:“2021-03-31”}}”

Does someone see what’s happening? Perhaps there’s a problem with the API?
When I remove the “connect_boards” part of the string, the item creation works flawlessly.

Hi @freek-gcompany!

When you want to utilize the connect boards column, you have the make sure of a few things:

  1. The boards on which these connected items sit are manually linked in the UI side to the connect boards column
  2. The structure of your query is as follows: "{\"connect_boards62\" : {\"item_ids\" : [your_item_ids]}}"

Try this out and let me know if you still run into an issue!
