Update Extension - hidden field does not update

I'm trying to modify the 'hidden' field with Update Extension API and I cannot get the value to change. I see the behavior when using the API in my app as well as via the 'try it out' button on the web page. Is there some other requirement to get this field to update? An example use case is the user shows up in the company directory but we want to change hidden to 'true' from 'false'. The API response returns a 200 but the field value does not change.

Does your app have the "EditExtensions" permission? Can you also print out the response to see if it get changed

Hi - yes the app has 'Edit Extensions' - I am able to update other fields just fine. rc-image002.png

Thanks for sharing the details. I can confirm that the hidden param is not working and I will report the problem to the platform team. Will give you update when it's fixed.
