Eloqua Update

On this Page

Snap type:

Write


Description:

This Snap invokes an Eloqua REST API Update endpoint to modify an Eloqua object of a specified type.

  • Expected input: The Snap invokes the Eloqua endpoint for the given object type once for each input document, using the document as the content sent to the endpoint. This document must include a field called "id" which identifies an Eloqua object of the specified object type. Any fields not specified in the document will not be modified in the object. Check the Eloqua API documentation to understand the other required and supported fields specific to the object type. Note that the Eloqua documentation is not very complete/accurate in this respect. 
  • Expected output: The Snap outputs exactly one document for each object successfully updated. This document is produced by the Eloqua endpoint. It describes the updated object in its entirety, including both modified and unmodified fields.


Prerequisites:

OutputThis Snap has exactly one document output view and produces one document in the view for each successful call to the Eloqua endpoint.
