Jobs API

Overview

The Jobs resource contains all background job activity and status.

  • API set name: jobs

Additional information

  • Jobs are generated by the application to manage and track contact imports and exports using the contactimports and contactexports APIs.
  • The job information includes job status, job ID, job name, total items, completed items and start and end times.
  • For import jobs specifically, jobs also include total records, number updated, number inserted, number rejected, duplicate records, invalid records and new records.
  • Job names and IDs are given to the job automatically based on the API initiating the job type. For example, contactimports will assign the value of ImportContacts to the jobName.
  • Jobs can have a status of Scheduled, Pending, Processing, Failed, and Done.
  • Jobs records are retained for 60 days.
  • Job rejections and import rejections are downloadable in the UI.
  • Job rejections are retained for 7 days.
