Update Task Details - checklist item

I am modifying a flow and adding an update task details action. All works fine until I try and add a checklist item as part of updating the task detail, where anything I try makes the action fail (it works fine without attempting to add checklist items). I figure its likely the id thats the issue, but neither just a numeric nor generating a guid works.

 

Any ideas how / if this part of the action actually works?

Hi @PJW 

 

Could you please try to delete the step 'Update task details' and recreate it?

Maybe there is a problem with the action you used.

 

I've found similar problem from another user and the problem was solved:

Hi @PJW 

 

You can simply type in integer for cheklist Id, such as 1/2/3/4/…

Strongly recommend you type integer in incremental sequence with the beginning of 1. Because the checklist Id serves as an unique identifier for the checklist. Even two checklist items have the same Title, they do not have the same Id.

Unfortunately that doesn't work - fails with BadRequest error "Property checklist in payload has a value that does not match schema." I cannot work out why based on the input code.

 

    "body": {
        "description": "test2\nbigpharma\n\n\n\n\n------\nTask created on Microsoft Forms submission. \nResponder:  Peter.Woods@themrn.co.uk\nSubmitted On: 2/9/2021 10:09:25 PM\n",
        "checklist": [
            {
                "id": "1",
                "title": "a checklist item",
                "isChecked": false
            }
        ]
    }

Hi @PJW 

 

Could you show me screenshots of your detailed flow?

Because my flow didn't occur the same problem as yours. Maybe it's an another step causing this problem.

See shots here - it all works fine until I try to add checklist items (other parts of update task details are completed succesfully)
