Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • ObjectTypeName (string) –

      The name of the profile object type.

    • Description (string) –

      The description of the profile object type.

    • TemplateId (string) –

      A unique identifier for the object template.

    • ExpirationDays (integer) –

      The number of days until the data in the object expires.

    • EncryptionKey (string) –

      The customer-provided key to encrypt the profile object that will be created in this profile object type.

    • AllowProfileCreation (boolean) –

      Indicates whether a profile should be created when data is received if one doesn’t exist for an object of this type. The default is FALSE. If the AllowProfileCreation flag is set to FALSE, then the service tries to fetch a standard profile and associate this object with the profile. If it is set to TRUE, and if no match is found, then the service creates a new standard profile.

    • SourceLastUpdatedTimestampFormat (string) –

      The format of your sourceLastUpdatedTimestamp that was previously set up.

    • Fields (dict) –

      A map of the name and ObjectType field.

      • (string) –

        • (dict) –

          Represents a field in a ProfileObjectType.

          • Source (string) –

            A field of a ProfileObject. For example: _source.FirstName, where “_source” is a ProfileObjectType of a Zendesk user and “FirstName” is a field in that ObjectType.

          • Target (string) –

            The location of the data in the standard ProfileObject model. For example: _profile.Address.PostalCode.

          • ContentType (string) –

            The content type of the field. Used for determining equality when searching.

    • Keys (dict) –

      A list of unique keys that can be used to map data to the profile.

      • (string) –

        • (list) –

          • (dict) –

            An object that defines the Key element of a ProfileObject. A Key is a special element that can be used to search for a customer profile.

            • StandardIdentifiers (list) –

              The types of keys that a ProfileObject can have. Each ProfileObject can have only 1 UNIQUE key but multiple PROFILE keys. PROFILE, ASSET, CASE, or ORDER means that this key can be used to tie an object to a PROFILE, ASSET, CASE, or ORDER respectively. UNIQUE means that it can be used to uniquely identify an object. If a key a is marked as SECONDARY, it will be used to search for profiles after all other PROFILE keys have been searched. A LOOKUP_ONLY key is only used to match a profile but is not persisted to be used for searching of the profile. A NEW_ONLY key is only used if the profile does not already exist before the object is ingested, otherwise it is only used for matching objects to profiles.
