I am trying to use Processing tool to automate refactoring for several tables: here is the code I am trying to use

import processing
input = 'C:\\Users\\Ehsan\\Desktop\\CIS WORK\\Sample 
output = 'C:\\Users\\Ehsan\\Desktop\\CIS WORK\\Temp\\'+'cable'+'.geojson'

                  [{'name': 'id',
                    'type': 10,
                    'length': 10,
                    'precision': 0,
                    'expression': 'Value'

When I run this program I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\PROGRA~1\QGIS3~1.2\apps\Python36\lib\code.py", line 91, in runcode
exec(code, self.locals)

context = dataobjects.createContext(feedback)

TypeError: QgsProcessingContext.setFeedback(): argument 1 has unexpected type 'str'
  • Please edit this question and add the complete trace back of this error.

    Run the tool manually and go to processing history (Ctrl+Alt+H) to see correct syntax. For example processing.run("qgis:refactorfields", {'INPUT':'/home/bera/GIS/Testdata/Polygons123.shp','FIELDS_MAPPING':[{'expression': '"id"', 'length': 10, 'name': 'id', 'precision': 0, 'type': 4}, {'expression': '"someid"', 'length': 100, 'name': 'someid', 'precision': 0, 'type': 10}],'OUTPUT':'/home/bera/GIS/Testdata/Polygons123_refactor.shp'}) Input should be inside curly brackets etc.
