Bring Back The "Live" Param (v2 API)

If you’ve used the new v2 API (or Make/Zapier connection), you probably noticed that there is no longer an option to set an item as live when updating or creating.

This means you need to make a separate call (or add a separate module) every single time to publish the item.

It’s quite a pain for literally every use of the API - and, it leads to increased costs with Make/Zapier.

I know the Webflow team is doing amazing things with the API and we are all grateful :smiley: But it would be really great if we could either bring that back, or get an explanation about why it disappeared.


Seconded. Please bring this option back.

+1 :fire:

I wonder why they removed it… maybe it was an accident?
Either way, please bring it back! :pray::blush:

I was forwarded this, great news!

Thanks Webflow team!


Can you report back when they’ve implemented it? I’ll be watching this thread.

Oh this is really great news! I’ve definitely been missing the ‘live’ param! I’ll hold off updating my workflows a little longer…

Although I think it’s kind of weird we still have 3 parameters that control the publishing status (isDraft isArchived and now publishStatus). For API v2, I thought they might combine these…

Nearly 3 months, and still no “Live” param…
