Issues with update() using app reference field




  • Andreas Haugstrup Pedersen

    Going from memory here, but once you go down the array path you need a lot of them. Attempt this:

    "values" => array(array("value" => 19380159), array("value" => 18088765));

    I'll try that real quick too, I just got a result doing this:

    $new_student = $this->api->item->updateFieldValue(18087177,17703085,





    ** );**

    My question though is since I need to put the new ID and the current IDs, is there an easy way to get the current IDs already attached to this item_id?

    Thanks for the quick response as well I really appreciate it, trying to wrap this thing up tonight

    You'd have to either get the whole item and find the field and value or use getFieldValues. If you are doing a lot of calls use getFieldValues since it has a higher API rate limit

    I think I got it. I did this as a test and it seems to work so now I'm going to plug my variables back in and should be good to go :)

    $test = $this->api->item->getFieldValue(18087177,DONOR_STUDENTS);

    ** $instance;**

    ** foreach($test as $i => $t){**

          $instance[$i] = $t['value']['item_id'];

    ** }**

    ** try {**

          $student_id = floatval($new_student['item_id']);

          $new_student = $this->api->item->updateFieldValue(18087177,$student_id,$instance);

    ** }**

    Hey guys... related to Nick's question... I need to find a PHP code sample for how to create an item which has an app reference... 

    I am successfully creating my item which has fields "title" and "text" like this:


    $fields = array(

    array('external_id'=>'title', 'values'=>array('value'=>$this->title)),

    array('external_id'=>'text', 'values'=>array('value'=>$this->template_content)),


    $template_item = $this->api->item->create($_SERVER['HELPDESK_TEMPLATES_APP_ID'] , array('fields' => $fields));


    In this same app, if I have a field called "Release" and need to link this up to my "Releases" app item - assuming my Releases app item ID is stored in a variable called $ReleaseItemID, and and field ID of the Release variable is in var called $ReleaseFieldID...  what is the syntax to link up the app reference?

    Thanks for any help!

    All code untested because that's how I roll this morning. :)

    With the new PHP client:

    $field = new PodioAppItemField(array('field_id' => $ReleaseFieldID);


    $item = new PodioItem(array('app' => new PodioApp($app_id));

    $item->fields = array($field);


    With the ancient PHP client you'll need to build your array or arrays yourself:

     array('field_id' => $ReleaseFieldID, 'values' => array(array('value' => $ReleaseItemID));

    // You may be able to get away with, but I'm unsure

    array($ReleaseFieldID => $ReleaseItemID);
