Error trying to update filename through the GraphQL API

I'm trying to update an image's filename using the GraphQL API as described in the docs but I'm getting an error stating "Field 'filename' doesn't exist on type 'File'".

Did anybody have success updating (or at least reading) this field recently? I suspect the API may have been changed without notice (big woop if so).

Here's the query I tried:


mutation fileUpdate($files: [FileUpdateInput!]!) {
  fileUpdate(files: $files) {
    files {
    userErrors {

And the response:


  "errors": [
      "message": "Field 'filename' doesn't exist on type 'File'",
      "locations": [
          "line": 5,
          "column": 7
      "path": [
        "mutation fileUpdate",
      "extensions": {
        "code": "undefinedField",
        "typeName": "File",
        "fieldName": "filename"

I also tried naming the field as "fileName" but no good.

I've tried using API versions 2023-07 (the first one to support mutating the filename property as per this blog post), 2023-10 (latest), and 2024-01 (RC).

Any help is appreciated, thank you.
