I am trying to set the IsAnchor attribute for individual categories via the api however, I keep running into this error.

{"message":"Property \"IsAnchor\" does not have corresponding setter in class \"Magento\\Catalog\\Api\\Data\\CategoryInterface\".","trace":"#0...

I am using the catalogCategoryRepositoryV1 /V1/categories/{id} operation.

When I do a get, I can see that the property does exist. enter image description here

Has anyone run into this issue before?

I have not found a solution via google.

Thank you.
