API call from C# Code

Hi Team,
we are trying to create item with column values in board from C# code but item is not created please suggest where we are missing
string columnvalue = “ready 5”;

string query = @“{ ““query””: ““mutation {create_item(board_id: 3133804748,item_name: new item test10, column_values:"”{\"“text\"”:\"”” + columnvalue + @“\"”}"“) { id} }”" }";
string MondayApiKey = “Token”;
string MondayApiUrl = “”;
byte dataBytes = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(query);

    HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(MondayApiUrl);
    request.ContentType = "application/json";
    request.Method = "POST";
    request.Headers.Add("Authorization", MondayApiKey);

    using (Stream requestBody = request.GetRequestStream())
        await requestBody.WriteAsync(dataBytes, 0, dataBytes.Length);

    using (HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)await request.GetResponseAsync())
    using (Stream stream = response.GetResponseStream())
    using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(stream))
        return await reader.ReadToEndAsync();

Hello there @knpashish!

I have two questions:

  1. Which response do you get from our server when you send the HTTP request?
  2. Are you sure the ID of the second text column is text1 and not something like text_1?

Thanks i got it now its work
