Hi community.

 

I want to develop an application that use card metadata.

Unfortunately, I can add metadata to the card with JavaScript SDK, but I can’t get it with REST API.

Do you know why?

 

Reproduction procedure

(0) Create Application

https://developers.miro.com/docs/getting-started

(1) Create a card with SDK

await miro.board.widgets.create({
type: "card",
text: "test card",
metadata: {
[appId]: {
hoge: true,
},
}
})

(2) Get the card with REST API

curl --request GET \  --url https://api.miro.com/v1/boards/${board_id}/widgets/${widget_id}\  --header 'authorization: Bearer ${token}'

→ No metadata

 

Thank you.

Hello,

I just tested this and it works if you make the call in the code for your web-plugin, like this:
 

miro.board.widgets.create({
type: "sticker",
text: "TEST",
metadata: {
"1234567890471107053": {
data: "test data",
},
}
})

However, if you are calling the SDK from your browser Javascript console, you have to make sure that you set the right Javascript context. You should choose your web-plugin as the context, otherwise it won’t work. Like this:

I hope this helps.

Kind regards.
