Can you lock objects made via API when they are created?

I want to lock some objects when having a set of objects created since they act as background objects, I know you can do this on board, but can it be done when created via miro.board.widgets.create?

Hey Saifis!

Unfortunately right now there’s no way to lock/ unlock widgets using API or SDK.

We’ll have a look at it to see if we can add it to the backlog :thumbsup:


Are there any updates on this feature? I also like to create some widgets that act as background objects and being able to lock them using API or SDK would be extremly helpful.

And I need this feature too.


Yes this feature would be nice to avoid manipulation of custom made items that are not supposed to be edited by the user.
Thanks in advance !


No, you cannot directly lock objects when creating them with `miro.board.widgets.create`. You need to create them first and then lock them using the `miro.board.widgets.update` method.
