We're happy to help. We're currently reviewing your query and we'll get back to you soon.
Thanks for your response @DianaTran! Do you have any updates on the issue? We are planning to go to production soon and this issue affects our implementation significantly. At least we should understand whether it's a bug or a designed behavior that we cannot clear some field.
Thanks for following up on the query. We're happy to answer your question. Sending a blank field such as “contactPhoneNumber ": "" is the right way to clear a field.
But as you've observed, that is not the current behavior. We will get this updated in our upcoming releases. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have other questions, we're happy to help.
@DianaTran, thanks for the clarifications Diana!
It would be great if you have some rough estimation when the new release with the changed behaviour could be available in the sandbox for testing.
Or maybe you have some roadmap or public web-page that we could subscribe on to be informed when the issue is fixed.
