According to the new documentation this API is currently under development and is not really "out there".

https://developers.hubspot.com/docs/api/crm/engagements

 

According to the old documentation (that has proven to be outdated and incorrect in many cases) the associations cannot be modified through engagements. You need to use associations API for that part of your code.

Statements about associations in engagements here: https://legacydocs.hubspot.com/docs/methods/engagements/engagements-overview

 

Put your association through this api and remove it through this call

@MichaelC Thanks for the info, I actually do not need to modify the association.  Alll I am trying to do is add a call recording to the CALL engagement.  I have removed everything but this in the JSON and continue to get the parsing error.  Any other suggestions?

 

JSON

{
    "metadata": {
    }
}

@MichaelC Thanks again for the help...my issue was that I did not parse my JSON befor sending the request.  My API is now working as expected.
