Set originalReferrer via API

I'm trying to set the originalReferrer field via the REST API.

When I POST the following to







"firstName": "test",

"originalReferrer": ""




Marketo responds with:


"requestId": "[anonymized]",

"result": [


"id": 123456,

"status": "updated"



"success": true


Seems reasonable enough.

However, when I view the lead in Marketo, Original Referrer is not set, though First Name is set to "test".

Any thoughts?

Re: Set originalReferrer via API

It's a system field, don't think it's user-updateable. You can use a custom field and copy the system field into there using a flow, then update it only if empty (using Block Field Updates).

Can you switch your name to be your full name? (That's one of the recs of the Community guidelines.)

Can't be changed via API. Must be field update blocked in the back end
