Updating Timesheet Duration via API

We are attempting to update Timesheet durations via the API by POSTing the following JSON to https://api.clarizentb.com/v2.0/services/data/objects/Timesheet/5un2xduvus1yygwms9j7mbpqi218 :

{
"Duration": "0.00h"
}

We then receive the following error: Clarizen Admin is not allowed to Update '05/28/21' Timesheet.

The timesheets are approved, however we are able to update this same duration field via a Workflow, is this possible to do via API? Do we have to change the state first even if its not required by the Workflow?

Hi Rebecca,

Please try using the following instead and let me know if it works:

{
  "Duration": {"value": 0, "unit": "Hours"}
}

Thank you,

Roland

Thanks Roland, I gave that a try and received the same error.  It looks like if I use the API to first change the state back to Un Submitted, then it will allow me to update the Duration.  This could be a bit tricky for us to manage because we have workflows that automatically submit and approve anything coming from the API.  I had to disable them in order to test this scenario.
