Examples

The following examples demonstrate how to create a new custom object export definition using an HTTP request and cURL. For more information on requests, see API requests. See the tutorial for details on how to export data.

HTTP Request Example

Create a new "Hot Air Balloon" custom object (id #9) export:


POST /customObjects/9/exports
Content-Type: application/json 
			

Request body:


{
   "name": "Hot Air Balloon Export",
   "fields": {
	"inflated": "{{CustomObject[9].Field[99]}}",
        "ID": "{{CustomObject[9].ExternalId}}"
   }
}
			

Note:

Custom objects are unique to each Eloqua installation. Examples here will not map directly to your custom objects and their fields. You can obtain a list of all custom objects using the GET /api/bulk/2.0/customObjects endpoint. Once you have a custom object's id #, you can retrieve its field list by using the GET /api/bulk/2.0/customObjects/{id}/fields endpoint: this will allow you to create accurate import/export definitions.

Response:


{
    "name":"Hot Air Balloon Export",
    "fields":{
        "inflated":"{{CustomObject[9].Field[99]}}",
        "ID":"{{CustomObject[9].ExternalId}}"
    },
    "dataRetentionDuration":"PT12H",
    "uri":"/customObjects/9/exports/32091",
    "createdBy":"API.User",
    "createdAt":"2015-09-14T19:45:46.2078245Z",
    "updatedBy":"API.User",
    "updatedAt":"2015-09-14T19:45:46.2078245Z"
}
			

cURL Example

Here is the same example in cURL given an instance with the name APITest, username API.User, and POD of 3.


curl --user "APITest\API.User" --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{"name":"Hot Air Balloon Export","fields":{"inflated":"{{CustomObject[9].Field[99]}}","ID":"{{CustomObject[9].ExternalId}}"}}' https://secure.p03.eloqua.com/api/bulk/2.0/customObjects/9/exports
			

HTTP Request Example

Create a new custom object export that includes mapped contact and account fields:


POST /customObjects/9/exports
Content-Type: application/json 
			

Request body:

Note:

Custom object exports can include any Contact or Account field, which will be returned if the exported Custom Object record is mapped to a Contact or Account. Contact or Account fields must be added with the Custom Object root.

{
  "name": "Hot Air Balloon Export with Contact and Account Fields",
  "fields": {
    "inflated": "{{CustomObject[9].Field[99]}}",
    "ExternalId": "{{CustomObject[9].ExternalId}}",
    "ContactId": "{{CustomObject[9].Contact.Id}}",
    "ContactFirstName": "{{CustomObject[9].Contact.Field(C_FirstName)}}",
    "AccountId": "{{CustomObject[9].Account.Id}}",
    "AccountCompanyName": "{{CustomObject[9].Account.Field(M_CompanyName)}}"
  }
}
			

Response:


{
  "name": "Custom Object Export with Mapped fields",
  "fields": {
    "inflated": "{{CustomObject[9].Field[99]}}",
    "ExternalId": "{{CustomObject[9].ExternalId}}",
