Node API: Multiselect new option

#1

I have a need to insert new select option into field but when i try to do it with node api i get.

Class {
  error: 'INVALID_MULTIPLE_CHOICE_OPTIONS',
  message: 'Insufficient permissions to create new select options',
  statusCode: 422 }

I have admin permissions. Is there a way to insert array of new options into Multi select field ?

Hi Uros, I see this is your first post so welcome.
The API does not currently support creation of tables and fields.
These will have to be set up via the UI interface and the API is for retrieving and updating the information that is already there.

Also as a side note any questions related to API you can put in the API category of the forum.

Chinara,

How is it possible that, when creating a new record with Zapier, the creation of a new option in a single select is done?

We have this need as well. We have an automated process to sync records to Airtable from our database via the API. We have to track down the new value when an error occurs during a sync then have to manually add it to the multi-select field. It would be super nice if it could be done via the API automatically instead.

Edit: It’s also made worse by the fact that the error message is generic, thus we don’t know the offending column either.
