How to update a event without knowing the eventid but some dataeelement value, something like choosing event by filter

I want update an existing event , by way of selecting using the DE value. how? can?

Hi @linxd,

Thanks for your question :slight_smile: You can get events knowing the data element value from API, but you also need a program stage id. You can do it by sending GET request to /events/query. Example URL that works on play database:


When you know event id, you can send PUT request to update the event. You can find out more about the API endpoint here.

Hope this helps.
