Updating deal through API not working - Postman


Hi guys,

Trying to update a deal using Postman in preparation of some automation what I’m creating, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’m probably doing something wrong, but I can’t find what.

So, details.

url: https://api.pipedrive.com/v1/deals/<DEAL_ID>?api_token=<TOKEN>
method: "PUT"
body: {
    title: "API test"

Executing this doesn’t do anything though. Not getting an error, but also not seeing the new name in the interface.

The raw output from Postman:

PUT /v1/deals/123?api_token=<TOKEN>

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Hi Tiana,
what response are you getting?

Also, make sure you’re sending the body parameters as x-www-form-urlencoded.

Omg I’m an idiot. Thank you Dani!
There was no response though, the response was empty, which was why I was confused on what was happening.
