Problem updating the dependency column using API

From the API playground:

mutation{change_multiple_column_values(board_id:654, item_id:456,
  column_values: "{
  \"notes\" : \"y\",
  \"dependent_on\":{\"item_ids\": [123,345]}

returns error: SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0
same syntax, changing “dependent_on” column to a “connect_boards” column with appropriate change in item id, works correctly

Any ideas?

Can anyone confirm that the API to update a dependency column even works?

Hey Jim,

You should be able to update the Dependency column in a similar way to the item link column; so your syntax is correct.

In fact, I was able to reproduce this issue. I’ve gone ahead and reported this to our developers and will update here when this is fixed!

Dipro :crystal_ball:


Thank you for the update.

I am having exactly the same problem. Any help on a working syntax to get us by @dipro ? I am short on time :slight_smile:


This is now working. The syntax I gave at the top is correct.

Thanks @JCorrell - this is fixed for me too :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
