Required parameters in API service getting reset

Backendless Version (3.x / 6.x, Online / Managed / Pro )


Client SDK (REST / Android / Objective-C / Swift / JS )


Application ID


Expected Behavior

Please describe the expected behavior of the issue, starting from the first action.

  1. parameters marked as not required in an API service are not required

Actual Behavior

Please provide a description of what actually happens, working from the same starting point.

Be descriptive: “it doesn’t work” does not describe what the behavior actually is – instead, say “the request returns a 400 error with message XXX”. Copy and paste your logs, and include any URLs.

  1. whenever I change some parameters to not required, they are marked as required again when I open the method up to edit.

Reproducible Test Case


I am trying to set some parameters of an API service method to not-required. I keep adjusting the setting in the UI, but every time I reopen the method settings again the parameters are marked as required once again. Is there some reason why Backendless would be automatically marking these as required?
