Why are id and id_string different?
In the ZoHo Projects API, the returns often contain two fields, id and id_string
Often they are the same, but on some records they are different, and experience has taught us that the id_string value is the one that will work in further API calls.
I'd like to know what is the difference between the two fields, and what are their intended uses?
This can be quite annoying -- for example, calling /portal/[PORTALID]/mytasks/ will return a list of tasks, including the task's project id. Unfortunately, it is the id field, not the id_string field, meaning that it is of limited use when making API calls to the Project (it may match the id_string value, it may not)
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
