Updating status from Task via API

Updating status from Task via API


I have been integrating my Zoho Desk with Zoho Projects. More specifically, i’m able to create a Task on my Desk and it creates on Zoho Projects too.

Now i’m trying to make the Status of the tasks reflect on the other platform as well, so if i close my task on Zoho Desk, it should close on Projects too.

The problem i’m encountering is on the stage where i’m trying to update the Zoho Projects task status. No matter the values or format i’m inputting it simply doesn’t update.

Using the Get Tasks API, i’m getting the following format for the status field in the response:

I’m using the Projects Update Task API, all the scopes from the documentation are listed in the connection and i tried different methods from Maps to arrays to try and update the correct values, but had no success so far.

Here are some examples of methods that i tried using to update the value, note that i tried using both the zoho.projects.update function and the API via invokeurl:
  1. sList = list();
  2. sMap = map();
  3. sMap.put("name","Open");
  4. sMap.put("id","----------");
  5. sMap.put("type","open");
  6. sMap.put("color_code","#74cb80");
  7. sList.add(sMap);
  8. status = {"name":"Open","id":"----------","type":"open","color_code":"#74cb80"};
  9. params = Map();
  10. params.put("status",sList);
  11. updateTask = invokeurl
  12. [
  13. url :"https://projectsapi.zoho.com/restapi/portal/" + portal + "/projects/" + projectId + "/tasks/" + taskId + "/"
  14. type :POST
  15. parameters:params (tried using the status variable too)
  16.                 connection:"-----"
  17. ];
  18. info updateTask;

  19. update_pro = zoho.projects.update(portal, projectId, "Tasks", taskId, status,"fullprojects");
  20. info update_pro;
Is there a correct format that i need to input? Or is this field locked? 

Thank you in advance!

                                            Hi All, Today, we have made an enhancement in task inline editing. In 4.0, task edit is moved in a single screen in a pop-up. We designed this in-order to make the task edit across the product to be the same. Let it be in Feeds, Tasks & My Tasks tab, Calendar & My Calendar tab, a click on the task title will open the popup and user can edit the values. Customers pointed us the inline editing was very useful to them & how much they miss that in 4.0. Based on the feedback, we have rolled out this enhancement.

                                            Often, we stumble upon tasks having the same status workflow. Repetitive task processes are tedious to handle, right? That’s why we have introduced Blueprint for task automation. Blueprint is a tool to organize tasks and automate them based on the workflow you design and the criteria you define.    How do I associate tasks with a blueprint? You can set the criteria while creating the blueprint such that when you publish a blueprint, the tasks that satisfy the criteria will be associated with the
