Manual call log saves, but does not store note / recording url

According to the docs here and here it should be possible to create a manual call log for an existing account. However, the commands shown do not work properly and the same goes for the API calls.

Taking this example:

curl -H "Authorization: Token token=<TOKEN>" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"phone_call": { "call_direction": true, "targetable_type": "contact", "targetable": { "id": "31034733456" }, "note ": { "description": "Sample note"} }}' -X POST https://<DOMAIN>

The response I receive is:

  "contacts": [
      "partial": true,
      "id": 31034733456,
      "first_name": "Jay",

No note is saved, as is shown in the UI:

Furthermore, the ‘recording’ and ‘is_external_recording_url’ don’t seem to do anything. There is no documentation about this as far as I can find. Please provide more documentation/info about this.

A response would be appreciated.

Hi Daniel.
There is a typo in the docs. In the request payload, the key should be “note” instead of "note ". Changing this should help.
Adding a sample screenshot for reference.
