Valid request body elements

The following table lists all valid request body elements (arrays, objects, or fields), which are available to this endpoint.

Element Type Description

cursor_id

string containing a UUID value
(e.g. 00609c898a4490c5800a5453)

The cursor_id element is the UUID for the start of the first organization record in the next page of organizations (defined by the limit member value). This value is retrieved from the previous /v1/organizations/get endpoint request.

sort_by_field_id

string

The sort_by_field_id element whose organization field ID value specifies the organization fields used to sort the people returned from your Ortto account’s CDP.

sort_order

string with value asc or desc
(default value is desc)

The sort_order element determines the order in which the people returned are sorted, based on the sort_by_field_id member value. Specifying this sort_order member is only relevant when the sort_by_field_id member is also specified.

fields

array of string values

The fields array contains organization field ID values that define the organization fields of the organization records returned by Ortto from the request.

inclusion_ids

array of string values

A list of organization_ids to include in the search.

exclusion_ids

array of string values

A list of organization_ids to exclude from the search.

limit

integer between 1 to 500
(default value is 50)

The limit element value determines the number of people to be returned by Ortto from the request.
This value also represents the "page" length of people (for pagination purposes), since potentially many thousands of people records could be retrieved from a single request. This element can be used in conjunction with offset to retrieve subsequent pages of people records.
If this limit element is not specified in the request, or an integer value beyond the permitted maximum is specified, then this value is assumed to be 50.

offset

integer with a default value of 0

The offset element represents the count of people records in your Ortto account’s CDP for pagination purposes, and is the point from which the next page of people (defined by the limit member value) is retrieved.

q

string

The q element is a search parameter used only to find organizations by name.

If you wish to search for organizations by ID, for example, you would need to use the filter` element.

organization_id

string

The unique identifier for an organization in Ortto’s CDP. This value is retrieved from the previous /v1/organizations/get endpoint request.

filter

Object containing a organizations’s field ID (representing an organization field) used for filtering

The filter element contains a field member that determines whether records are filtered with ($has_any_value) or without ($has_no_value) a person field’s value.

Response payload

The response payload consists of a JSON object with the elements listed in the table below.

The following JSON object is an example of the tag data that Ortto retrieves from your Ortto account’s CDP after a request to this endpoint.
