Jamming step 94: Unexpected use of 'name' no-restricted-globals

Hey there,

I was working on POST request which would create new playlist. I have a weird to me error which I tried to google and find a solution but I think I do not understand it properly. Below is the method in which when i try to use “name” like this “body: JSON.stringify({ name: name })” react fails to compile.

I don’t get what am i supposed to replace “name” with since it is appreciated by JS in general. In the video tutorial mentor uses exactly body: JSON.stringify({ name: name })".

PLease advice. I’m stuck again.

	savePlaylist(playListName, arrayOfTrackURI) {
		if (!playListName || !arrayOfTrackURI.length) {
		const accessToken = Spotify.getAccessToken();
		const headers = { Authorization: `Bearer ${accessToken}` };
		let userId;
		return fetch("https://api.spotify.com/v1/me", { headers: headers }).then(
			(resp) =>
				resp.json().then((jsonResp) => {
					userId = jsonResp.id;
					return fetch(`https://api.spotify.com/v1/users/${userId}/playlists`, {
						headers: headers,
						method: "POST",
						body: JSON.stringify({ name: name }),
						.then((resp) => resp.json())
						.then((jsonResp) => {
							const playListId = jsonResp.id;
							return fetch();

Hi there, me again…

What is name? I cannot see that you defined it anywhere. And the parameter names don’t match with what you pass as the value ‘name’ to the object assigned to the body.

@mirja_t just by asking your counter-question you made me think and find the issue :slight_smile: indeed I was supposed to define it in the method parameter. I didn’t :slight_smile:

Thank you so much @mirja_t.

Hi @brashad,

I have the same issue with my code. Can you tell me where did you defined name in order to remove the error?

Thank you!

Hi!, you have to past your playlistName (inside your savePlaylist method) in the name.
