Tabs API: Update tab call does not work

Hi All,

I've been trying to use the update tab course as follows:


I get a 422 error when I made the call. I am able to pull all the tabs for course 1861 but to update the course GRADES tab is not working!!!

BTW, I am posting with curl and passing hidden=true.

Any ideas?

 @yaach ​ I have just tested this API call, and it worked just fine for me.

I was able to hide Grades, unhide Grades, and reposition Grades without issue.

Just to confirm, this is the API definition I am following

PUT /api/v1/courses/:course_id/tabs/:tab_id

One thing to note, if you "hide" grades it will still appear to the instructor in light grey text, it is not completely removed from the options.  Is this what you are seeing?  Have you viewed your result from the student perspective?
