Suffix added to property name


I have a collection that I’ve been modifying. The Webflow CMS seems to have added a suffix to one of my properties.

For example, when I call the API, ingredients is now ingredients-2.

I have an external API that relies on consistent property names.

How can I override this behavior and prevent it from happening again in the future?

Thank you,

If you delete collection fields and recreate them the names get generated that way.
You could create a completely new collection but that would also create new collection IDs also.

aaargh… feeling this same pain today…

creating a new collection is not feasible at this point and deleting old names, then recreating them does not seem to get them back to the non suffix version.

it seems the only way forward is to create a new unique name for all the items, but then you have to update your backend, so not ideal either.
