Is there a configuration to allow patching in SalesForce ?

I tried to patch the Account on Postman, no success. I also tried on Workbench, no success.

My Url (on workbench):


The Patch


The Raw Response (form Workbench):

Raw Response
HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error
Date: Tue, 14 Jan 2020 09:21:20 GMT

Why I can't Patch it ? The Error say sit is an internal error from lightning. I need to do such patch.

From Postman, PATCH + Identification with an access token :


The headers Content-Type application/json

Body raw JSON:


I get the Error :

500 Server Error 

Code error :

curl --location --request PATCH 'https://orga-- 
/0011F00000YVnnwQAD' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer 00D1F000000YNnMcdT' \
--data-raw '{ "AdCloud_PartnerID__c":"5406" }'

Always an internal error from SalesForce...

  • Can you copy the "Code" from POSTMAN and show us all the headers and the HTTP method being called? – Bryan Anderson Jan 15 at 14:59
  • @BryanAnderson I've edited the question with more information – Benoît Jan 15 at 15:35
  • can you actually click on the "Code" link next to "Cookies" under the Send button and paste what is in there in your question – Bryan Anderson Jan 15 at 15:46
  • @BryanAnderson Thanks I didn't know that, I just post the code – Benoît Jan 15 at 15:53
  • If it's not working from Workbench the problem may lie within Salesforce and not anything to do with the REST API. Are you using a privileged user that can see the AdCloud_PartnerID__c field to make this update? Try changing the field on the Account record page and see if there are any errors that aren't surfacing through the REST API. – nbrown Jan 15 at 18:13

PATCH seems no longer supported. A work around is a POST method with a parameter :


So It becomes :


In the Body :


Please, upvote is it works for you.

Here is a sample of a record update:

PATCH /services/data/v47.0/sobjects/Account/001XXXXXXXXXXXX HTTP/1.1
Host: myorg-dev-ed.my.salesforce.com
Authorization: Bearer 00DXXXXXXXX
Content-Type: application/json

    "BillingCity" : "San Francisco"
