I raised an issue on Github too: Annotate transaction not working for custom key · Issue #129 · monzo/docs · GitHub
I am trying to annotate transactions as documented here: Monzo API Reference
Assigning values to the
notes key seems to work as expected. However, trying to assign a value to my own custom key does not work.
I send this request
http --form PATCH "https://api.monzo.com/transactions/$transaction_id" \ "Authorization: Bearer $access_token" \ "metadata[foo]=bar"
But there is no
foo key in the metadata of the returned response. The docs example says that the
foo key should be present in the response.
When I retrieve the transaction with:
http "https://api.monzo.com/transactions/$transaction_id" \ "Authorization: Bearer $access_token" \ "expand==merchant"
I don’t see the
foo key either. I have tested this with several different transactions.
Could you please explain why this isn’t working or where I’ve gone wrong if I’ve made a mistake? Thank you!
