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? Commented Jan 15, 2020 at 14:59
  • @BryanAnderson I've edited the question with more information

  • can you actually click on the "Code" link next to "Cookies" under the Send button and paste what is in there in your question Commented Jan 15, 2020 at 15:46
  • @BryanAnderson Thanks I didn't know that, I just post the code

  • 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.

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"
