Bulk provides an option to upload a large number of resources, such as contacts, to a service provider all at once. You can use bulk to download a csv or json file from a large number of records or upload a csv or json file to add multiple records. See Using Bulk for more information on managing bulk.
Cloud Elements leverages the native provider bulk endpoints whenever available. When there is no bulk available from the provider, Cloud Elements provides a bulk service for uploading and downloading data from the endpoint. See Bulk Details
for the type of bulk used.
|Bulk Type||Cloud Elements bulk service and not native bulk endpoints. Rate limits come into play when using the Cloud Elements bulk service, so review the limitations in the API provider's documentation.|
|Field Selection Support|
|Yes. You can specify fields within a resource. For example, |
select attributes.accountid from accounts.
|Order By Support|
order by fieldName is not supported for this element.
If you configured the Callback Notification Signature Key (
event.notification.signature.key) when you authenticated an element instance, the bulk APIs will use the signature key to provide hash verification in the header of bulk jobs. For more information, see Hash Verification.
