(Wordpress / Ajax) ReferenceError: Can't find variable: ajaxobject

I'm working with Wordpress + Ajax and even using the proper hooks I get the error "ReferenceError: Can't find variable: ajaxobject". Of course there is some problem with my ajaxurl but I don't understand where since it seems well done to me. Can you help me?

In my functions.php

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_frontend_ajax_javascript_file', 11, 2 );
function add_frontend_ajax_javascript_file()
{
wp_localize_script( 'ajax-script', 'ajaxobject', array( 'ajaxurl' => admin_url( 'admin-ajax.php' ) ) );
}


my jQuery/AJAX file

var itemtitle = $('#itemtitle').val();
var itemdescription = $('#itemdescription').val();
jQuery.ajax({
method: 'post',
url : ajaxobject.ajaxurl, //Why???
dataType: "json",
data: {
'action':'update_portfolio_function',
'pid' : id,
'itemtitle' : itemtitle,
'itemdescription' : itemdescription,
},
success:function(data) {
// This outputs the result of the ajax request
alert("Coooool");
},
error: function(errorThrown){
console.log(errorThrown);
}

});


of course the
update_portfolio_function
looks like

add_action('wp_ajax_update_portfolio', 'update_portfolio_function' );
function update_portfolio_function(){
$id = $_REQUEST['pid'];
$title = $_REQUEST['itemtitle'];
$description = $_REQUEST['itemdescription'];
$attachment = array(
'ID' => $id,
'post_title' => $title,
'post_content' => $description
);
// now update main post body
wp_update_post( $attachment );
die();
}


Should I use
init
or
no_priv
?

Answer

You just need to use ajaxurl instead of ajaxobject.ajaxurl

like below

jQuery.ajax({
        method: 'post',
        url : ajaxurl,
        dataType: "json",
