Update message userfield content

Last modified on September 11, 2023 at 2:04 pm


To update the message property of a userfield, you can send an HTTP PUT request to the userfield URL with a JSON object containing a message property with the updated value. This property controls the text displayed to the end-user by a message-type userfield.

Note that you are not limited to updating one property at a time; all fields that are valid for a particular userfield type may be updated in a single request. All fields not specified will retain their value. See the Userfield Object Reference for a list of all the object’s fields.


This example shows the request-response sequence when updating its size property.
