Watchlist different between old and new UI?

Why are the old and new UX watch lists different from each other so if I add a stock in the old interface, and then I’ll go to the new interface, I don’t see it in that watchlist, and the APIs are not connected for some reason? Any and all help is appreciated

@MadTrader The old UI is being deprecated and, in the transition, some features may not carry over. In this case, use the new UI for watchlists.

@dan_whitnable Got it, but the watchlist API is tagged to the old UI? Is there an endpoint I’m not aware of for the new UI watchlists?

The API supports multiple watchlists (see the docs here) Unfortunately, the current UI doesn’t have a method for adding watchlists. Moreover, it defaults to displaying the most recent watchlist. That may or may not be the one created/displayed in the old UI. Therefore, if not, then the watchlists displayed in the old and new UIs will be different. Sort of a bug.

Thanks for the explanation @Dan_Whitnable_Alpaca! A Couple of questions:

  1. When do you think this bug will be fixed? Seems like its there for a long time now.
  2. I can confirm the bug is in paper trading but does it also exist on live trading?

@Dan_Whitnable_Alpaca - So I cannot use the new UI because when I try to show all watchlists I only see the one in the old UI?

Another way to put this:
The API endpoint: is only showing old UI watchlists even if I manually add an asset to the NEW UI watchlist.

Please advice what I can do to be able to use the new UI watchlists.

@MadTrader The UI has is undergoing some changes and unfortunately the multiple watchlist feature got missed. Not sure of an ETA when it may be fixed but it’s on the list.

Hi @Dan_Whitnable_Alpaca - Any idea where we are on this issue? Thanks again for the assistance.
