Update choice field using HTTP Request action

Hello,

 

Sorry for asking this question. I'm trying to find an answer but i don't seem to find the right answer.

 

I'm trying to use an HTTP Request action to update a choice field on an item.

Field is called "Status". Values of the field are "Level 0", "Level 1", "Level 2".

 

I'm trying to update the Status of a specific item to "Level 2"

 

I tried several thing and finally ended up with this but still have an error

Thanks a lot for your help

OK !! i think i did it....well from my test it works.

 

In fact, it's the same as updating a simple text field. I decided to get back to the action's configuration for a simple text field and readapted from that point. I could do this for a text field earlier today but thought it would be different for choice fields...first because of the things i found on the net and second because in Powerapps when using functions, choice fields need a complex block. (complex for me cause i never remember how to write it). So i've been a bit stupid, i didn't test that before and i'm sorry i disturbed you all.

 

For those who might be interested, this is the solution

Hello @mahoneypat ,

 

Thanks a lot for your reply.

 

I found these sites earlier and tried to arrange something with what but they use Create/ Update item actions (using these actions i know how to do it).

 

The thing is i'm trying to do the same with an HTTP request. I couldn't manage to apply what i read on the sites to an HTTP Request action. (if you look at my screenshot, you will see i use an odata.type ...that i tried to use from the second site you gave me (after trying other ways) because my last error message was saying that the type is not defined.

 

so i'm still a bit stuck.

 

Thanks and regards
