Mutation: create_column for a 'formula' type column

I’m trying to use create_column to create a column of the ‘formula’ type, but the schema on the GraphiQL tool doesn’t appear to list this as a valid value for the column_type variable, which as far as I can see should be a ColumnType. Can anyone let me know if this is possible?

Querying for a board created through the normal user interface does seem to show ‘formula’ as the type. Is ‘formula’ maybe some special case of one of the listed types?

{
  "data": {
    "boards": [
      {
        "columns": [
          {
            "id": "name",
            "type": "name"
          },
          ...
          {
            "id": "formula3",
            "type": "formula"
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
}

Many thanks in advance!

Hey @lucy.parry,
The formula type is not supported yet by the API. The reason for that is that this column requires special settings to work and we did not yet created the ability to set column settings with the API.
Without the settings the formula column is not usable (the formula itself is saved in the column settings).
We are working on it and hope we can get this ready soon :slight_smile:

Hi @Ayelet,
Thanks for the response! Will look forward to being able to create the column settings when this feature is available in that case :slightly_smiling_face:
