Hello Everyone. 

I have another weird error.    the spread sheet I am making is 35 columns across and 270 rows down.   I do batch updates exclusively.  And I also time my updates to the most updates are 160 a minute to not overload the Server(a 200 ms delay between updates).   

sometimes mid way through the updates Im getting 


  • Invoke-WebRequest : { "errorCode" : 1006, "message" : "Not Found", "refId" : "td1ey3p82fb4", "detail" : { "index" : 0, "rowId" : 7863688549951364 } }
  • At <REDACTED>\Powershell\Smartsheet\SSUpdate2.ps1:248 char:27
  • + ... esponse2  = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri https://api.smartsheet.com/2.0/she ...
  • +                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  •     + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-WebRequest], WebException
  •     + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeWebRequestCommand    


But if I wait a second or 2, it runs through no problem. ???


Am I pumping too much data through?


any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Steven M,

    From the sounds of it, there may be a row that is trying to be updated that may have been deleted. This will likely need some more troubleshooting. Please submit a ticket by emailing [email protected] and we'll be happy to troubleshoot further. If you're willing, please include your Request as well as the Response body. The refID above will help us investigate too. 

    Kind Regards,
