Release Notes

Today we’ve released a handful of infrastructural changes along with a nice, little fix to our API…which, have you heard of our API? It’s pretty neat.

Basically, it allows developers outside of YNAB to create tools that interact with other public-facing API’s. Here’s what we fixed with the YNAB API in today’s release:

When using the PATCH on the /budgets/{budget_id}/transactions endpoint to update multiple transactions, we allow you to specify either the import_id or the id of the transaction to update. But, if you specified an import_id and null for the id (rather than omitting id from the object) we would not save the transaction. Fixed!
