    I am using a third party API workflow software called parabola.io and they won't support form-data, so will Jotform API support raw JSON as the body for API edit instead

    Hello Anto,

    You can edit the submission only using two possible methods:

    1. Within Jotform using your submission page: https://www.jotform.com/help/325-how-to-edit-submissions-made-on-your-forms/.
    2. Using API: https://api.jotform.com/docs/#post-submission-id

    It is not possible to add external JSON data to the form builder.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi, my question was specif to editing the submission via API, while editing the submission using API, is the only way to use ApplicationType - Formdata or can we use ApplicationType JSON. If we can use application type JSON, what would the body format be for editing the Submissions field?
