Update an existing object in your Procore account. This includes updating the object's field values as well as attaching new files to the object.
This action can be used to execute most Procore API calls that use an HTTP PATCH request and take a single object (rather than an array of objects) as input. Please refer to the Procore API Reference to find such APIs; most of them begin with the word "Update". Here are just a handful of Procore APIs that you can invoke with this action:

Suppose you want to update an existing Injury record in Procore based on new data collected from a form in GoFormz. To do this, you might start with a Form Completed trigger, then configure an Update Object step as follows:
In this example, we first construct the
apiPath as described in Procore's Update Injury API documentation, using the "ProjectId" and "InjuryId" fields from the completed form to fill in the required project ID and injury ID path parameters. Then we fill the
affliction_type_id parameters of the Incident with corresponding values from the completed form. Note that all of these parameters can be found in the Body Parameters of the Update Injury API documentation.
