I am able to do PATCH to developername by /services/data/v30.0/tooling/sobjects/CustomField/{FieldID}

with body: { "developername":"abc" }

however, it's failed when I tried to update any metadata like

{ "Metadata" : { "trackHistory" : true } }

message: An unexpected error occurred. Please include this ErrorId if you contact support:

This bug has been fixed by salesforce in summer release but can you post the Gack or the stack trace id, which is the error id.

I am sure you are using the json format perfectly fine.Please ensure that you are using the full name too in the body.

{ "DeveloperName": "Address", "FullName": "House__c.Address__c", "Metadata": { "label": "Address", "type": "Text", "length": 120 } }

  • David, Are you doing this in a summer release sandbox or your production, which is on Spring release. – varun guruvugari Jun 29 '14 at 19:25
  • I am doing it in the Partner Developer Edition created from partnerforce. Thanks! – David Jun 30 '14 at 17:50
