Codeless: "Get Object By Id" does not work with Properties

When using the Codeless Block, you cannot use the Properties tab of the “Get Object by Id”
See this example:

Has the results:
“___class”: “Table”,
“ColumnName”: “XXXX”

The ObjectId is missing

Hi, @Tobi_Vaudrey

Welcome to the community!

I was unable to reproduce your issue. Similar logic works well for me.

As I can see from your screen, you have several issues:

  1. Remove the extra single quotes from the object Id field;
  2. Replace the comma with a period in the properties field.



Sorry, the single quotes shouldn’t be there - that was a mistake.
I don’t want a . I want a comma, i.e. I want two fields returned.
If I use FieldName,objectId on other “Get” widgets, it works correctly

@Tobi_Vaudrey, use the “create list with” block for this case:


Thank you!
This is inconsistent with other blocks.
I would expect it to work the same as other blocks.
See here, one top doesn’t work but top does.

Is there documentation somewhere that shows the differences here?


We will discuss this case with our developers, an internal ticket BKNDLSS-31272 was created for this case, I absolutely agree with you that the behavior should be the same.
The codeless documentation can be found here in the REST section, we have already started to add some blocks Backendless REST API Documentation.

We also have many video tutorials on our you-tube channel for you to check out

Have you been through our missions? We have a pack of missions which are designed to introduce you to Codeless I would suggest you start with them Mission Packs For Codeless Learning | Backendless


Thank you!

My 10c worth - both behaviours should work for Properties, i.e. using a Comma Separated list or an Object.
No matter which type of block you using.
