Can you pass board_id and item_id as variables in Python?

Eventually from running a query, I want to update a column with a next text value by referencing a board ID and item ID. I can pass variables into my mutation as a String!. I can’t figure out how or if I can pass numbers for the board ID and item ID. If tried Int!, Number!, etc. Is the possible? If so, what is the variable type? Code below shows me trying to pass the board ID through as a variable.

vars4 = {
‘boardID’: ‘2383442606’,
‘itemID’ : ‘2632247819’,
‘columnID’ : ‘text90’,
‘updateTxt’ : ‘hello world’}

query4=‘mutation ($boardID: Int!, $updateTxt: String! ) {change_simple_column_value (board_id:$boardID, item_id:2632247819, column_id: “text90”, value:$updateTxt) {id}}’
data = {‘query’ : query4, ‘variables’: vars4}

r =, json=data, headers=headers) # make request
print(“Query 4”)

/Users/bruce/PycharmProjects/MondayCom/venv/bin/python “/Users/bruce/PycharmProjects/MondayCom/Weekly”
Query 4
{‘errors’: [{‘message’: ‘Variable boardID of type Int! was provided invalid value’, ‘locations’: [{‘line’: 1, ‘column’: 11}], ‘value’: ‘2383442606’, ‘problems’: [{‘path’: , ‘explanation’: ‘Could not coerce value “2383442606” to Int’}]}], ‘account_id’: 8981852}

Looks like your boardID is of type string while it need to be an Int

So is the itemID :slight_smile: Both need to be Int

I wasn’t using ItemID yet. I first wanted to get boardID working. I removed the quotes around the boardID. Success! So the Int! does work. Thanks for the help.
