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

Class {
  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 @Bill.French ,

Not currently – the solution above is only for the public API. There isn’t a way to add new select field options in scripting right now, but I will definitely add your vote for this functionality!

Please change my vote to suggest what we really need - increased consistency between the API and SDKs. If it’s possible in the API, users assume it must certainly be possible in the SDK. No one imagines that external apps can do this but internal apps cannot.

I have already used public api with “typecast”: true properties but still facing issue you can follow given message.
"“message”: “Invalid request: parameter validation failed. Check your request data.”

Pls let me know what I am missing

Thanks In Advance!!

Hi @Shivam_Tripathi,

There are a few reasons why this error can occur - can you please write an email to with more details of the API request you are making (e.g. the full request, excluding your API key) so that our team can take a closer look? We’ll be happy to help out. Thank you!

Can someone show me how to do this step-by-step?

I have no coding experience, but need to figure out a way to allow Make/Integromat to make a new select option when creating a record. How can I bypass the “Insufficient permissions to select new option” error code I keep getting?

I don’t know how to properly use the code solution Erin provided.

@Erin_OHern I'm seeing the same permissions error as the OP when using the proposed solution.
