Context: using Draftbit, react UI builder and rest api to Airtable, Draftbit form for creating Airtable API requests
I am trying to patch update records with linked record fields. I am trying two methods:
a) creating an updated list and then patching the field with the new list
I am not using multi-select options instead I have a separate table with records I link to. I am not able to get it to work. The example would be a language field which links to different languages specified in that table and a user can support multiple languages.
I am posting screens from the form builder showing both methods. I would like to know If I was filling in the json using the form interface I show what would be the syntax using either or both methods.
I got this to work. All I need to do is compose the desired link record array for a field. Here is the patch update structure. I also used typecast in the right place. Some references show it placed incorrectly after “fields” definition, instead it should be after “record” definition in the json. But I would like to know if method (b) is supported by AIrtable
