Creating new Item via API

Hi :_),

I have a working mutation (tested on playground, does the job) to insert a new item with populated columns:

mutation { create_item( board_id: ${MondayService.issuesBoardId}, group_id: ${MondayService.clientTicketGroupId}, item_name: "fromApp12", column_values: "{\"people2\":{\"personsAndTeams\":[{\"id\":\"36904156\",\"kind\":\"person\"}]}, \"dropdown\": {\"ids\":[3]}, \"status94\": {\"index\": 2, \"post_id\":null}, \"status3\": {\"index\": 2, \"post_id\":null}, \"dup__of_severity\": {\"index\": 2, \"post_id\":null} }") { id name } }

I am attempting to use it in the following way:

    if (resFromNewItem.status === 200) {
      console.log("New Item created Succesfully!");
    } else {
      console.log("Error creating item: ",;
  } catch (err) {
    console.log("error in monday fetchAllBoardIssues: ", err);

where ‘query’ is the returned mutation given above.

I get the following response:

New Item created Succesfully!

And no item is being inserted.

Any ideas?

Edit: tried also in the following way:

 const resFromNewItem = await
      { query: query },
      { headers }

then I get:

New Item created Succesfully!

Regards :slight_smile:

I noticed you have an errors key in your response: this means something went wrong. if you try to print the response with console.log, this value is expressed as “[Object]” because the value is nested too deeply inside the response data structure. console.log only prints up to 3 layers deep, I think.


Instead, you need to explicitly access this value and print it – something like this:

let returnedData = await resFromNewItem.json() // creates an object from the response body
console.log(JSON.stringify( // prints the full response
