Data Exporter API - Access Core Objects Over API

Prior to this enhancement, access to Data Exporter core objects was limited to organizations that used the Data Exporter.

With this release, access to Data Exporter core objects is extended to organizations that use the Reporting API.

The following benefits are included with access to Data Exporter core objects:

  • Max page size increased to 10,000
  • Replaces 80 legacy views
  • Extended metadata to simplify integrations
    • Descriptions
    • Custom Field Names
    • Relationships between fields and objects (via the Odata Navigation properties)
  • All core objects include Last_touched_dt

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

Data Exporter core objects are optimized for reliability at scale and improved performance compared to the API views. Organizations attempting to retrieve large numbers of records(>100K) may notice improved performance upon switching to the core objects.

New End Point

Implementation

This functionality is available via a new end point for organizations that use the Reporting API. Objects are not 1:1 representations of views, therefore they will require some integration work in order to begin use.

Reporting API documentation will be updated when this functionality becomes available.
