Location Column no longer accepted?

I was working on a script that adds appointments to monday using locations. As of last Friday, Nov 29, 2019, the api would accept the location info. All of a sudden this week I am getting errors saying the column is not valid. Did something happen? Why are locations no longer available?

mutation {
create_item(
board_id: ######,
group_id: “topics”,
item_name: “Douglas, WY”,
column_values: “{“date4”:{“date”:“2019-06-03”},“hour”:{“hour”:19,“minute”:30},“month”:{“index”:6},“status4”:{“index”:5},“location”:{“address”:“300 E Walnut St, Douglas, WY 82633, USA”,“placeId”:“ChIJTRXqpLhKYYcRxCpTmn3WFCI”,“lat”:“42.7610824”,“lng”:”-105.3838591"},“status”:{“index”:3},“text6”:“Test Venue”,“text”:“Paul Smith”,“text61”:“room 24”,“numbers”:“30”,“text42”:“2392”}"
)
{
id,
name,
column_values{
value,text,title,additional_info
}
}
}

RESPONSE:

{
“error_code”: “ColumnValueException”,
“status_code”: 400,
“error_message”: “This column type is not supported yet in the api”,
“error_data”: {
“column_type”: “LocationColumn”
}
}

Hey there, thanks for joining the community! Dipro here :slight_smile:

The location column is not officially supported by our API but, due to a bug, it was possible to update the column via the create_item operation. This bug allowed users to add bad data to their boards which caused issues. Therefore, we added some data validation and now prevent users from updating unsupported columns.

We appreciate your patience here and I apologize for the change in behaviour. Do let us know if you have any questions!
