Error trying to save update object to database - iOS/Swift

Backedless 4.0.15


I'm trying to save my updated order object to the database and get the following error:

  1. 2017-10-14 19:22:29.263144 Yeti[876:180255] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSUnknownKeyException', reason: '[<NSConcreteValue 0x174e457f0> valueForUndefinedKey:]: this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key objCType.'

I'm using the same function to both create and update the object as described in the documentation:

"Updating a data object which has been previously stored in the Backendless data store can be done using the same API as for saving the object initially. "

When I use the function to create the object it works fine, when I try to update it I get the error. This is my create/update order function:

  1. func createOrder(_ order: Order, completion: @escaping (Order?,Fault?) -> Void)


    print("Begin create order service")

    let dataStore = backendless?.data.of(Order.ofClass())



    response: { (result: Any?) -> Void in

    print("Create order response received")

    let savedOrder = result as! Order

    print("Order saved: \(savedOrder.userId)")

    let user = self.backendless?.userService.currentUser

    self.setUserOrderRelation(order: savedOrder, user: user!)


    result, error in

    if let result = result



    completion (savedOrder, nil)


    else if let error = error



    completion (nil, error)




    error: { (error: Fault?) -> Void in

    print("server reported error: \(error)")

    completion(nil, error)



The error comes up as soon as is executed.

Got this working, no need to investigate.

Tried a lot of different things so not sure exaclty what the issue was but I was updating my order data model and looks like I had some sync issues between my old and new data models.
