I’m taking data from Zomentum and bringing it to Motion to create projects.  I’m getting “Bad Request” when creating projects and don’t know why.

Hi @ryang 

Good question.

Make sure you review the help article for the requirements of using Motion in Zaps: https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/16060960284685-How-to-get-started-with-Motion-on-Zapier#additional-authentication-instructions

Check your Motion Zap app connection here: https://zapier.com/app/connections

thanks for replying. The connection tests fine and I’ve generated the API key properly. I can read the fields from Motion just fine, I simply get that error when trying to test the zap out.

Have you tried reaching out to Zapier Support or Motion Support?

Make sure there are no line break and no unsupported characters, or if there is a max character limit.

That’s a good idea, I’ll start with Zapier’s support at this time since they’re generating the error code that is vague.

FYI: Most apps on Zapier are built and maintained by the app developers themselves on the Zapier Developer Platform.

Did you ever find a solution? I’m having a similar issue.

Zapier merely displays the encountered error code from the app’s API used in a Zap step.
