Emit Behaviour

Options are: Emit Individually emits each object in separate message, Fetch All emits all objects in one message

Expected input metadata

Input json Schema ```json { "type": "object", "properties": { "searchTerm0": { "title": "Search term", "type": "object", "properties": { "filterType": { "title": "Field Name", "type": "string", "required": true }, "filterValues": { "title": "List of values", "description": "List of values to filter on in the specified fields.", "type": "array", "required": true, "items": { "value": { "type": "string" } } } } }, "maxResultSize": { "description": "Positive integer that defaults to 1000", "required": false, "title": "Max result size", "type": "number" } } } ```

Expected output metadata

Output metadata will be calculated dynamically according to Marketo documentation

Example of input message

{
  "searchTerm0": {
    "filterType": "id",
    "filterValues": ["210","211","339","344","214","215","216"]
  }
}

Lookup Activities

Lookup Activities by criteria.

Lookup Activities

List of Expected Config fields

Emit Behaviour

Options are: Emit Individually emits each object in separate message, Fetch All emits all objects in one message

Example of input message

{
  "activityTypeIds": [1],
  "sinceDatetime": "2015-04-21T20:51:56.790Z"
}

NOTES: If you want to generate the sample for Fetch All behavior, use a small period time in your filter criteria. In other cases, you will receive a retrieve sample timeout error.

Bulk Import

Action for insertion of large sets of person and person related data.

Bulk Import

List of Expected Config fields

Object Type

List contains default object types and custom object types.

Supported default object types
Leads
Program Members

Wait for job execution

Checkbox, if unchecked - action returns the result of bulk import job creation if checked - the action starts to poll bulk import job status with the specified timeout (by default 10000 ms, or it is possible to configure environment variable BULK_IMPORT_POLLING_TIMEOUT): the action is executed successfully when job status becomes Complete and failed when job status becomes Failed.

Expected input metadata

Input metadata depend on object type:

Metadata for object type Leads ```json { "type": "object", "properties": { "format": { "required": true, "type": "string", "enum": [ "csv", "tsv", "ssv" ] }, "lookupField": { "type": "string" }, "partitionName": { "type": "string" }, "listId": { "type": "number" } } } ```
Metadata for object type Program Members ```json { "type": "object", "properties": { "format": { "required": true, "type": "string", "enum": [ "csv", "tsv", "ssv" ] }, "programId": { "required": true, "type": "string" }, "programMemberStatus": { "type": "string", "required": true } } } ```
Metadata for custom objects type ```json { "type": "object", "properties": { "format": { "required": true, "type": "string", "enum": [ "csv", "tsv", "ssv" ] } } } ```

Limitation

The action uses the attachment mechanism, so due to platform limitation doesn’t work with Local Agent Installation.

Upsert Objects

Action upsert objects by unique criteria.

Upsert Objects

List Config fields

Object Type

  • Supported standard objects: Companies, Leads, Named Accounts, Opportunities, Opportunity Roles, Sales Persons
  • Also supports custom object types

Criteria

Field used for object upsertion. Note: if field is missed in input body error would be thrown

Example of Usage

  1. Upsert of one object:
  • Object Type Companies
  • Criteria externalCompanyId
  • Input messsage:
{ "values" : {
 "externalCompanyId": "19UYA31581L000000",
 "company": "Example"
  }
}
  1. Upsert of multiple objects:
  • Object Type Companies
  • Criteria externalCompanyId
  • Input messsage:
{ "values" : [
{
 "externalCompanyId": "19UYA31581L000001",
 "company": "Example 1"
},
{
 "externalCompanyId": "19UYA31581L000002",
 "company": "Example 2"
},
{
 "externalCompanyId": "19UYA31581L000003",
 "company": "Example 3"
}
]}

Limitations

  1. Maximum number of upserted object in one message is 300

Bulk Extract

Marketo provides interfaces for retrieval of large sets of person and person related data, called Bulk Extract. Bulk extract is performed by creating a job, defining the set of data to retrieve, enqueuing the job, waiting for the job to complete writing a file, and then retrieving the file over HTTP. These jobs are executed asynchronously, and can be polled to retrieve the status of the export. Action Bulk Extract creates a job with a defined set of data to retrieve. For polling status of the export and retrieving file you should use trigger Poll Bulk Extract Results.

Bulk Extract

Please Note action Bulk Extract and trigger Poll Bulk Extract Results should be used in different flows, both flows: with action Bulk Extract and with trigger Poll Bulk Extract Results, should be created in the same workspace.

List Config fields

Object Type

List contains object types that can be used for Bulk extract interface.

Supported object types
Activities
Leads
Program Members

Expected input/output metadata

Input/output metadata depend on object type and generated from Marketo swagger document for the corresponding object type, or you can specify another URL in environment variable SWAGGER_URL

Example of Usage

  1. Create first flow with 2 steps:
    • Simple Trigger
    • Bulk Extract action
  2. Create second flow in the same workspace with 2 steps:
    • Poll Bulk Extract Results trigger
    • E-Mail action
  3. Run first flow - Bulk Extract Job should be created
  4. Run second flow - trigger waits for job completion
  5. When the job is completed and trigger processing is finished, check mailbox - file with job result should be received.

Limitations

  1. Mandatory fields are not marked in the input metadata for Activities and Program Members entities. You can find this information in the API documentation
  2. The action uses the attachment mechanism, so due to platform limitation doesn’t work with Local Agent Installation.
