Zoho Project Make API Call - Body format unknown!

Hi Everyone :wave:

I’m trying to make an API call to Zoho Project as not all of the functions are available in Make.com.

But I keep getting this Runtime error: [400] Input Parameter Missing

I Assume it’s because I am not using the correct JSON format of my parameters in the ‘Body’ of my call.

I have tried everything I can think of and running out of ideas.

In order to learn the format I am simply trying to create a new project via this POST url:

The Zoho API documentation os here: https://www.zoho.com/projects/help/rest-api/projects-api.html#alink2

And says this about the Create Project

Can anyone please help me understand how I learn the correct formatting in the body to set the parameters as per the documentation?

Thank you very much for any help you can give. Please let me know if you need any more info

I am not sure and the document of ZOHO is inadequate regarding whether it supports JSON as a body or simply uses form-data instead of JSON.

You can go through this Postman Collection,


From the look of it, it requires form data instead of the JSON, you can try it and see if that works.


Brilliant thank you. This looks like the help I needed to get me on the right tracks.

I will give it a go and let you know. :slight_smile:

I figured it out. The standard authentication make sets up with Zoho project doesn’t include all of the authentication scopes I needed. Now I have added ALL scopes it’s working a treat.
