ExternalCompanyID Update through ZAPIER

Hello!! 

I'm trying to update ExternalcompanyID field through ZAPIER, and I receive the error bellow.

I'm just using mapping the email and ExternalCompanyID. Could you help with this issue please? 

In case I could not update ExternalCompanyID via API, how could I update this field?

Cheers.

The error is self-explanatory: that Company ID needs to exist.

Thanks Sanford,

 

I'm pretty new in Marketo, so maybe you can help me. I cannot import ExternalCompanyID, either update it trhough API. I want to integrate opportunities into Marketo (I do not have SF or Dynamics).

 

As far as I understood, I need to enable "Opportunity Role" table, Is this correct? How can I do it? 

 

Thanks

You would use the Company API for that. That's how you get the ID to then link in the externalCompanyID field.

In Zapier I only can access lead information, including ExternalCompanyID that is already mapped in the Zap. But when I tried to update it, I get 1003Error. 

 

I understand so far that I cannot use this solution. Is this correct? Do you have any alternative solution?

Then Zapier, unsurprisingly, is not an acceptable platform for this task.
