Change to Marketo API - no more "Activity ID"

This question is answered

Hey all,

Looks like Marketo is going to be deprecating the "Activity ID" field starting in mid-May:

http://developers.marketo.com/blog/important-change-activity-records-marketo-apis/

What does this mean for Progress' Marketo connection, which currently provides this field? Will it be replaced with the new GUID field? If so, when will this change be put into place?

  • Hi Matt,

    We are looking at May 13th to update the Marketo data store with this change.

    As oppose to my earlier update, the plan to have this as single step update. This update will expose marketoGUID and id field will be removed from the schema.

    Thanks and Regards,

  • Hi Matt,
     
    We are tracking this update from Marketo.
    Marketo was expected to go live with their first phase of changes to expose marketoGUID field with same values as ID field but as string type early April. But, that release seems to be temporarily delayed.
     
    Once Marketo goes live with that change,  we have plans to update the Marketo data store to include the marketoGUID field and make the "id" field as non-mandatory field. This will make sure that the data store will be able to handle response from the Marketo correctly after they remove the "id" fields and introduce marketoGUID field with GUID values.
     
    As there is no clarity from Marketo side on when they will go live with first change; we also do not have a firm ETA for the Marketo data store update.

  • There is a change in the plan. As Marketo has shifted the date of their changes being effective to September 2017. We have cancelled our 'Marketo' update planned on May 13th.

    We are now looking at providing another Marketo driver update which will support both 'ActivityID' and 'MarketoGUID'. This will give enough time to migrate queries to use 'marketoGUID'.

    We do not have an ETA for this change yet.
