You can use the Lead Read Snap to query the Lead database. Lead database objects include the following:

  • Leads

  • Companies

  • Named Accounts

  • Named Account List
  • Static List
  • Usage
  • Opportunities

  • Opportunity Roles

  • Sales Persons

  • Custom Objects

  • Activities

  • List and Program Membership


A valid account with the required permissions. For more info, see Roles and Permissions.

Support for Ultra Pipelines

Works in Ultra Pipelines


  • Daily Quota: The subscriptions are allocated 50,000 API calls per day (which resets daily at 12:00AM CST).

  • API Rate Limit: All Marketo APIs are rate-limited. The API access per instance is limited to 100 calls per 20 seconds.

  • Concurrency Limit:  You can make a maximum of 10 concurrent API calls.

Known Issues

  • The Get Lead Activities REST API call fails while getting activities for the first page, because it expects a nextPageToken on the first page. See Connecting to Marketo with the REST Snap Pack for a workaround.
  • If the API rate limit of 100 calls per 20 seconds exceed, the API responds with a 606 error code and the Snap fails.
  • Marketo Snaps do not support some special characters (for example, (𝖖𝖗𝖘𝖬𝖭𝖮𝗕𝗖𝘧𝘨𝘩𝛀𝛁𝛂𝛃𝛄𝛅𝛆𝛇,𝖗𝖘𝖬𝛌𝛗𝛘𝛙𝛴).

Some commands require specific data in the input view. In such cases, place the Mapper Snap as an upstream Snap

Default Value: N/A
 Get Activity Types

Query Parameters

You can use this fieldset to define the name and value for query parameters on request.

Ensure that the query parameters are unique and not defined in both input documents and properties.


Specify the name of the query parameter for retrieving assets.

Default Value: N/A



Specify the value for the query parameter for retrieving assets.

Default Value: N/A


Snap Execution

Select one of the three following modes in which the Snap executes:

  • Validate & Execute. Performs limited execution of the Snap and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation, then performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only. Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled. Disables the Snap and all Snaps downstream from it.

Default Value: Validate & Execute 




Including and Retrieving a Lead

This example Pipeline demonstrates how we can include a lead to the Lead database and retrieve that lead from the Lead database. We use the Lead Write and Lead Read Snaps to accomplish this task.

Initially, we pass the following required lead values and account name in the Pipeline as key-value parameters.


Create a lead and insert them into the Leads database

We begin with mapping the lead information (defined in the Pipeline parameters) using the Mapper Snap. Upon validation, we see the lead information in the output preview of the Snap.

Mapper ConfigurationMapper Output

Next, we configure the Lead Write Snap to insert the lead information into the Lead database. Upon validation, we see a confirmation on the lead created into the Lead database.

Query and retrieve a lead from the Lead database

Here, we map the information to a Lead Read Snap, which is used to query and retrieve the lead from the Lead database.

To this end, we configure the Mapper Snap to set the target path to have the Lead ID. Upon validation, we see the output with lead ID information.

Next, we configure the Lead Read Snap, to retrieve the lead information by the Lead ID.
