    1. The external_id must be formatted as a string when submitted to the API. So "1234" or "my-external-id" works, whereas just 1234 will give you an error.
    2. and 3. Looking at the API code, I think the external_id is actually updated, but the cache is not flushed if you only change the external_id, making it appear as if the external_id was not updated. If this is the case, it's a bug and we will make sure to get it fixed.

    Ok, thanks Casper! Could you give me a heads up when you know if it's a bug or not and when/if it will be solved. I consider a field for this data instead but the external id would be more suitable since it shouldn't be editable inside Podio.

    The caching problem should be fixed now.
