Custom Fields

A custom field defines the name and type for an extra field of an API resource such as a contact, conversation, or account. Only listing all fields and updating the name and/or the description of a custom field is allowed. If you need a custom field to change its type, you need to create a new one with the correct type, as we validate the value of a custom field based on its type.

Each custom field has a specified data type. Ensure the data you submit when updating a custom field's value is formatted correctly:
