Trying to create a SharePoint list item using Rest call - issue with multiline text field

I'm using the "Send HTTP request to SharePoint" action to create a new list item with a REST call, becuase I am selecting a custom list name.

 

I am able to create the list item successfully with most of the fields, but I am struggling with a multi-line text field.

I am referencing the field like this:

 

"AdditionalNotes": {
"__metadata": {
"type": "SP.FieldMultiLineText"
},
"FieldTypeKind": "3",
"RichText": "true",
"Title": "@{triggerBody()?['Notes']}"
}

 

I am getting an error "Invalid JSON. A comma character ',' was expected in scope 'Object'."

The JSON is valid to being with, but I think it's all falling apart once the Notes field is retrieved and it tries to process it.

 

Any ideas most welcome!

Hi @Ric835 ,

 

I have made a test on my side and couldn't find a way to achieve the needs, I'm afraid that the REST call couldn't create a item with a multi-line text field.

Hi Alice, I feared that might be the case that it's a limitation. Thank you for investigating for me 🙂
