The rating column holds rating information for your item(s) which can be useful for ranking or assigning a grade to your item(s). You can filter, read, update, and clear the rating column via the API.

Filtering the rating column

Using the items_page object, you can easily filter a board's items by specific columns or column values. The table below contains the rating column's supported operators and compare values.

OperatorsCompare values
any_of
  • 0 (blank values)
  • 1 (rated 1)
  • 2 (rated 2)
  • 3 (rated 3)
  • 4 (rated 4)
  • 5 (rated 5)
  • not_any_of
  • 0 (blank values)
  • 1 (rated 1)
  • 2 (rated 2)
  • 3 (rated 3)
  • 4 (rated 4)
  • 5 (rated 5)
  • Examples

    The following example returns all items on the specified board without a blank rating column.

    query {
      boards (ids:1234567890) {
        items_page (query_params: {rules: {column_id: "rating", compare_value:[0], operator:not_any_of }}) {
          items {
            id
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    Reading the rating column

    You can query the rating column using the column_values object that enables you to return column-specific subfields by sending a fragment in your query. Values for the rating column are of the RatingValue type.

    query {
      items (ids:[1234567890, 9876543210]) {
        column_values {
          ... on RatingValue {
            rating
            updated_at
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    Fields

    FieldDescription
    column Column!The column the value belongs to.
    id ID!The column's unique identifier.
    rating IntThe column's rating value.
    text StringThe column's value as text. This field will return "" if the column has an empty value.
    type ColumnType!The column's type.
    updated_at DateThe column's last updated date.
    value JSONThe column's JSON-formatted raw value.

    Updating the rating column

    You can update a rating column using the change_multiple_column_values mutation and passing a JSON string in the column_values argument. Simple string updates are not supported.

    JSON

    To update a rating column using JSON, send a number between 1 and your rating scale. If you'd like to adjust your rating scale, you can do so in the column settings!

    Check out this mutation in action in our Postman library or follow along with these code samples!

    mutation {
      change_multiple_column_values(item_id:9876543210, board_id:1234567890, column_values: "{\"rating\" : {\"rating\" : 5}}") {
        id
      }
    }
    
    fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
      method: 'post',
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
      },
      body: JSON.stringify({
        query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValues:JSON!) { change_multiple_column_values(item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_values: $myColumnValues) { id }}",
        variables : JSON.stringify({
          myBoardId: 1234567890,
          myItemId: 9876543210,
          myColumnValues: "{\"rating\" : {\"rating\" : \"5\"}}"
          })
        })
      })
    })
    

    Clearing the rating column

    You can also clear a rating column using the change_multiple_column_values mutation and passing null or an empty object in the column_values argument.

    mutation {
      change_multiple_column_values(item_id:9876543210, board_id:123456789, column_values: "{\"rating\" : null}") {
        id
      }
    }
    
    fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
      method: 'post',
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
      },
      body: JSON.stringify({
        query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValues:JSON!) { change_multiple_column_values(item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_values: $myColumnValues) { id } }",
        variables : JSON.stringify({
          myBoardId: 1234567890,
          myItemId: 9876543210,
          myColumnValues: "{\"rating\" : null}"
        })
      })
    })
