Adding a new project with Template, the end date does not reflect.

Adding a new project with Template, the end date does not reflect.

Using the API {POST  /portal/[PORTALID]/projects/} it all works perfectly. Once howevery a template ID is introduced, suddenly the end_date is not reflective in ZOHO projects. There are no errors returned and it works perfectly besides the end date not be visible.

This problem is only for the end_date parameter and not the start date. 

Please see the attached code.

def new_project(**kwargs):
headers = {
'Authorization': 'Zoho-oauthtoken '+access_token
portal_name = "XXXXXX"
url = f'{portal_name}/projects/'
params = {
template_id = "TEST",
UDF_USER1 = "xxxx" ,
start_date = "04-01-2021",
end_date = "05-01-2021"
response =, params=params, headers=headers)
if response is not None:
if response.status_code < 400:
return response.json()
raise Exception(response)
print("we got no response")

The above code was modified for this example. But its shows that the format is the same for both dates one month apart in MM-DD-YY .

    • Announcing the Zoho Projects API

      Today we're excited to announce the API for Zoho Projects where any developer can extend the project management and collaboration capabilities through our APIs and can build their own customized applications for their business needs. We've tried to make the API follow the REST (Representational State Transfer) principles and generate a XML/ JSON object which allows you to access / read / write Zoho Projects data from third-party systems like Google/Yahoo gadgets, web sites, billing & invoicing systems,
    • Have you moved to REST API?

      Dear API Users, The Documentation of our Rest API is available here . All future development will be done to this version. We are deprecating the older API today. Its documentation will no longer be available and we will also be stopping the calls to this API soon. Thanks, Prasanna
