Introducing the Status Update API

Hello all!

Our team is committed to deliver a feature-rich API, and today we’re excited to announce new API endpoints available for Status Updates! This is similar to our existing Project Status API, but

  • More parent objects supported: This route supports projects, goals and portfolios.
  • A clearer status_type field: instead of a color (e.g. blue), we’re exposing a status_type (e.g. on_hold).
  • Support for likes: Similar to other objects, these now support finding out who has liked the status update.
  • Support for current status on parents: the latest status update is now exposed on projects, goals and portfolios in the current_status_update field.

Have a look at the full functionality in our docs!

As part of this launch, we encourage all new apps to use the new Status Update API over the existing Project Status API, and current_status_update vs. current_status on projects.

As always, feel free to leave comments and questions here. Be sure to check back for more updates and announcements as we continue to add new features to the API.



Any plan regarding the deprecation of colors for example on the legacy endpoint? thanks

@Bastien_Siebman Yes, we are planning a deprecation, which we’ll post about soon.
