Passing multiple values to Timeline event enumeration property

timeline

#1

I have a Timeline event with an enumeration property. How can I set multiple values for this property via the Timeline Events API?

This suggests separating the values with semicolons, however this doesn't seem to apply to events, and the API rejects the request with the error "not a valid option for [field]".

I have double checked that the values I am sending correspond to the enumeration values I defined when setting up the event property.

If I send a single value, everything works fine.


#2

Figured it out. The event property was mapping to a contact property that was set up as "Dropdown" instead of "Multiple checkboxes". Once I changed that, I updated the event property to a string, and sent a semi-colon separated value list and it works.

Thanks, me.
