My “Code by Zapier” Python 3.7 steps are marked as deprecated

Is there a way to upgrade to use Python 3.8 without having to recreated the step from scratch?

Hi @dean.bk 

You may have to manually update the Code step to use the current “Run Python” event for v3.8.

  1. Duplicate the Zap Code step.
  2. In the original Zap Code step, change the action event to the updated version.
  3. From the duplicated Zap Code step, copy/paste the code into the original Zap code step.
  4. Test.
  5. Check your other dependent following Zap action steps.
  6. Delete the duplicated Zap Code step.
  7. Publish the Zap.

Thanks Troy,

I’ll duplicate and recreate the “Code by Zapier” steps.

Shame there’s not an option to switch to Python 3.8 in the original step. The Python code I’m using is pretty basic and works with both 3.7 and 3.8.

Kind regards,
