==================
Dear community,

I'm copying a survey calling the API via C# and I'm trying to change some survey/question data. I'm able to change almost everything except two things:
  • Critical: I need to change the "equation" value under "attributes" for some questions. I can change the "question" value with no problems, but I can't change anything under "attributes". 
    • Works: sending this JSON as "aQuestionData" changes the "question" value: 
      {
         "question" : "degree: {'MY_VALUE'}"
      }
    • Doesn't work: Sending this JSON as "aQuestionData" does not change the "equation" value:
      {
         "attributes" : {
            "equation": "{'MY_VALUE'}",
            "hidden": "1"
         }
      }
  • Optional: I would like to change the survey group, but I wasn't able to find a valid option to do that using the API.
Please, could you help me?

Thanks in advance,
Fher

I think this topic can be in development

I think you can't update attribute : github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/ca...rol_handle.php#L1765

>  Optional: I would like to change the survey group, but I wasn't able to find a valid option to do that using the API.

You can't via API : github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/ca...rol_handle.php#L1793

2 solution :
- Use import_question function
- Create your own update function , make a Feature request and a pull request ( but you can use your own function before it was merged )

Hi,

I was able to create a new survey with import_survey, using an exported one as a template. I was able to do everything I needed but setting up the "survey group/section".

I can see the correct "gsid" within the CSV/TXT file, but once imported, the survey is assigned to the "Default" section.

It is possible to setup this value using the current API?

Thanks again,
Fher

I answer myself: yes, with 'set_survey_properties' and setting the "gsid" after the survey has been created.

Thanks for all your help :)
