Error message while creating subitem via API

Hi team,
I am getting this error message while trying to create a new subitem under an item via api.

“error_code”: “NoSubitemsColumnInThisBoard”,
“status_code”: 200,
“error_message”: “There is no subitem column on this board, please add it first”,
“error_data”: {}

Ideally, I would expect that a reference to the parent item should be sufficient to create a subitem.

Also, the create_column mutation does not specify subitem as a type.

Please guide me on how to proceed.

Thank you.

At the moment, to create a subitem, the subitem board has to first exist.
To create the board, you have to manually create a subitem under any item in the main board. You can delete the created subitem afterwards but the board will still remain (invisible).
Your query will then work afterwards

Thanks for sharing this @kolaai . That worked.

Hey @kranthi_thoughtflow and @kolaai – this issue was fixed!

You can now create a subitem on a board that doesn’t have any subitems on it – you won’t get a “please create a subitem column” error anymore.

Check it out in action here: Create first subitem
