AEP Dataview API - getting state hexString error message?


Level 3

Hi there.  I am hoping someone can help me.

I've been using Postman API software to create API scripts to create CJA Dataviews.  I was able to create a script that creates a new data view and now I'm working on an API script that will set and configure the dimensions within the newly created dataview. 


I was able to use my chrome browser's console network tab to see how the GUI formats it's "body" scripts so I don't believe the issue is with my body statement (but I could be wrong)


This is the error message I'm getting:

{"errorCode":"invalid_json_input","errorDescription":"Invalid JSON. At least one field format is not recognized or cannot be parsed. - Error caused by exceptionMessage=state should be: hexString has 24 characters","errorId":"74617b17-676d-4b71-9d17-8664a448b6aa"}


it references "exceptionMessage=state should be: hexString" - which i interrupt as there is an issue with the variable called "state" and it's improperly formatted.  


The issue, is my API script doesn't include a variable called 'state'.  


The body of my request looks like this:

{ "name": "Identifier", "description": "A unique identifier for the time-series event.", "labels": [], "isDeleted": false, "hideFromReporting": false, "id": "variables/_id", "sourceFieldId": "_id", "includeExcludeSetting": { "enabled": false }, "noValueOptionsSetting": { "noneSettingType": "show-no-value", "customNoneValue": "No value" }, "substringSetting": { "enabled": false } }


again, I pulled this directly from the GUI - it's the same JSON format with the exact same variables.


Can anyone help me resolve this?  The Dataview API documentation -https://developer.adobe.com/cja-apis/docs/endpoints/dataviews/ - also doesn't reference a variable called "state" at all, so there is no  reason to believe that 'state' would be a required variable in the body or header or query parameter.


Thanks so much for anyone that has any experience with APIs and or the Dataview API.
