Empty field values on things created with Bubble data REST API. What am I missing?

I’m using Postman to send POST requests to create things in my project.

I’m sending to the correct URL, with content-type application/json, and JSON valid body {} with the thing’s two fields as “email_text” and “zipcode_text” as specified in the documentation.

I see the newly created records in my database, and I’m even getting back 201 status success responses. However, the fields themselves are blank.

I’m unable to successfully set a thing’s field values, even through the API is responding 201 Created. I’m just getting new rows with the meta data fields populated and my fields empty.

Just solved for me. In my case it was a problem to add a think to list field. Square brackets solved the problrm:
