Failing to Close deal with API validation.null-not-allowed.request

Guest sam4




I'm making a Node.js program and just trying to open and close a position using the API. 

I'm making a delete request to 


with the following data: 


and I'm getting back "validation.null-not-allowed.request" the weird thing is I try it with the api companion and it works.

Apparently the error means that something is malformed in the request but I've got absolutely no clue. I've tried changing size to be a string not an int, and I've tried using "_method":"delete" and making a post request as I've seen forum posts indicating that should work as an alternative to making a delete request but neither work. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Apparently the DELETE request does not work.

You have to use a POST request instead. 

In the POST request, provide a header "_method" with the value "DELETE".

With curl you would specify the header as follows.

-H "_method: DELETE"
