Coupa Read

On this page


Use this Snap to read Coupa resource records such as suppliers, by using the relevant resource APIs. You can choose the detail-level of the output and additionally use query parameters to filter the result. Moreover, you can also query a specific record by using the record's ID.

Error handling is a generic way to handle errors without losing data or failing the Snap execution. You can handle the errors that the Snap might encounter while running the Pipeline by choosing one of the following options from the When errors occur list under the Views tab. The available options are:

  • Stop Pipeline Execution: Stops the current pipeline execution when the Snap encounters an error.

  • Discard Error Data and Continue: Ignores the error, discards that record, and continues with the rest of the records.

  • Route Error Data to Error View: Routes the error data to an error view without stopping the Snap execution.

Learn more about Error handling in Pipelines.

Field NameField TypeDescription


Default ValueCoupa Read
Coupa Read

StringThe name for the Snap. We recommend you update the Snap name, if there is more than one of the same Snap in your Pipeline.

Response Type

Default Valueall


Specifies the level of detail required in the Snap's output. You can configure this keeping in mind the available memory and likely processing time that it would take to execute this Snap. Available options are:

  • all: Output contains all details of the selected resource.
  • limited: Output contains only the records' ID.
  • shallow: Output contains ID as well as the direct child attributes of each record.

API Path*

Default Value: N/A


The API name associated with the target resource. Select the target resource from the suggestions in the field. Suggestions vary based on the SnapLogic Coupa account.

When fetching resource elements such as id, (for example, suppliers/:id), you must provide the query value as an upstream parameter.

Query Parameters

Use this fieldset to define query parameters and values to filter the results of the query. See Querying Options for details.

Query Parameter

Default ValueN/A

  • limit
  • email
  • email[not_eq]
StringThe parameter to be used to filter the results of the query. You can also include operators along with the arguments based upon your requirements. See API Operators for details.

Query Parameter Value

Default Value: N/A

String/IntegerThe value corresponding to the specified parameter.

Snap Execution

Default ValueValidate & Execute
: Execute only

Dropdown list

Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, 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 that are downstream from it.


Reading and Updating Inactive Records

This example demonstrates how to read one inactive Coupa supplier record and update one of its custom fields.

Download the example Pipeline.

The Coupa Read Snaps is configured as shown below:

Use Query Parameters field-set to filter the records. The Snap fetches all the supplier records, if this filter is not applied.

Based on this configuration, the Snap fetches the topmost inactive record for the supplier named Dell (USA). 

In this example, we want to update one of the custom fields in the fetched record. To update a resource record, pass the record ID to the Coupa Update Snap. To do so, use the Mapper Snap connected to both Coupa Read and Coupa Update Snap. Additionally, provide the values to be updated. For example, custom-field-5 and John Doe in this case.

This Mapper Snap is configured as shown below:

Output from the Mapper Snap:

This data is passed into the Coupa Update Snap which is configured as shown below: 

The response type is limited; therefore, only the updated data is shown in the output: 


Important steps to successfully reuse Pipelines

  1. Download and import the Pipeline into SnapLogic.
  2. Configure Snap accounts as applicable.
  3. Provide Pipeline parameters as applicable.
