Changing a status column with the API

I am looking to change a status column using the API and found the below in the forum but it doesn’t appear to work and get an error 500, what is the correct command to change a status column?

mutation {
change_simple_column_value (board_id: xxxxxx, item_id: xxxxx, column_id: “status”, value: “Done”) {

“error_message”: “Internal server error”,
“status_code”: 500

Hi @issmith,

Apologies for the delayed response! I seem to have missed this one.

At this time, I would verify that your board ID, item ID, and column IDs are accurate. The column ID can be a bit tricky to find (you need to check the dropdown menu for your column).

Do you mind also letting me know where you’re sending this query? Is it in your Developer’s Playground area? Postman? Or somewhere else?


Since we haven’t heard from you in a while, I’m going to go ahead and close this topic. Feel free to create a new topic if you’re still having trouble!
