As an integration developer, I would like to include Marketo data in various large-scale big data projects. However, there is no reliable way to pull a list of all lead records in Marketo. Marketo's own response to the question historically has been to determine the oldest part of an instance and run rolling 30-day exports of records. This is resource-intensive from both Marketo and the end-user side.
The more reliable option in such cases is to make a Smart LIst that contains all records, then reference that Smart List ID in the bulk export. That requires that marketers set up a Smart List ahead of time—but it makes little sense when there is already a Smart List that does this (consistently ID 1014 across instances). However, the system-generated Smart Lists cannot be referenced with this export.
Would it be possible to update behavior so either System Smart Lists are compatible with Bulk Lead Extracts or supplemental additions solve the problem of pulling all records from all time?
