  • You cannot update a deleted field by calling UpdateField ; it throws a ValidationException .
  • Deleted fields are not included in the ListFields response.
  • Calling CreateCase with a deleted field throws a ValidationException denoting which field IDs in the request have been deleted.
  • Calling GetCase with a deleted field ID returns the deleted field's value if one exists.
  • Calling UpdateCase with a deleted field ID throws a ValidationException if the case does not already contain a value for the deleted field. Otherwise it succeeds, allowing you to update or remove (using emptyValue: {} ) the field's value from the case.
  • GetTemplate does not return field IDs for deleted fields.
  • GetLayout does not return field IDs for deleted fields.
  • Calling SearchCases with the deleted field ID as a filter returns any cases that have a value for the deleted field that matches the filter criteria.
  • Calling SearchCases with a searchTerm value that matches a deleted field's value on a case returns the case in the response.
  • Calling BatchPutFieldOptions with a deleted field ID throw a ValidationException .
  • Calling GetCaseEventConfiguration does not return field IDs for deleted fields.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
