Retrieving Contact custom fields through C# API

Retrieving Contact custom fields through C# API



I am trying to retrieve contact information through the C# API


IList<Contact> contactList = Utility.GetContactCollection(authData, nextChunkId, out nextChunkId);


I get a list of contacts as a response, but I find that these contacts dont have the custom fields populated.


Please advice as to how to retrieve the custom fields.

Re: Retrieving Contact custom fields through C# API

Hi NabTestA,


Use Utility.GetContactDetailsById() instead to obtain Custom Fields for the contact.  If you do not know what the ID is, first search for it by emailaddress: Utility.SearchContactByEmail().


Hope this helps!

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
