API Updates for February 2021

API Updates

Update Summary

The February update consists of new APIs related to the App's Graph settings (External link) .
The APIs allows for creating and manipulating Graphs that previously required using Kintone's graphical interface. These APIs come in handy when Apps with graph settings are created in a test environment and need to be copied over to the production environment.

Kintone REST API

New features

  • New APIs will be added to get and update the Graph settings (External link) of Apps
    • Relevant APIs

      • /k/v1/preview/app/reports.json [GET, PUT]

User API

Spec changes

  • Added support for X-HTTP-Method-Override header to all User APIs.
    • Details
      • If a GET request is sent using kintone.api() and the URI length exceeds 4KB, the X-HTTP-Method-Override header will automatically be added and the request will be sent as a POST request.
