API Custom Fields Task

We created a couple custom fields in the Tasks, then noticed there is not optional properties to API a custom field in TASKS.

Is it correct to assume that this not possible? Or is there a way to API a custom field in TASKS?

We unfortunately do not yet support custom field access for Tasks via the REST API.

Only way to do that right now will be with the SDK.

You can write field data to the table (actually a ‘view’ in sql parlance) using the data object.

It looks like it uses the old XML table schema. Is that still supported?

Yes, the Legacy XML-RPC is still available, but will be removed in favor of REST API versions at some point in the future.

Would you plan on removing it before having that feature available through REST API?

Has there been any update to this?

Are API Custom Field Tasks now supported with the REST API?

Yes and they’re going to continue to say it’s planned on being discontinued to keep people from using it in place of REST, however, that’s been said for many years now and no one has come up with a viable way to prevent the large scale failure of api integrations using it so it is not likely to happen very soon (if at all lol)
