    How to write to Custom Objects

    Franky Ruysschaert

      Does anyone has a source where I could find input on how to write to a custom object?

      I know you should have a webhook, but since I am not that technical I would like to have a guide to build the complete flow.

       

      My case is simple, I want to have a custom object that keeps track of course subscriptions.

      I want to store the name of the course, the date, the title, and afterwards the presence of that person in that course.

          Don't assume anything is simple with COs.

           

          Have you read Understanding Marketo Custom Objects in the docs?

          A webhook isn't necessary but a REST API client app is one of the 2 ways to update COs.  And a Marketo webhook can call a service that in turn acts as a client app.  Apps can also be standalone Java, JS, PHP, Ruby, whatever apps or even compiled Windows or Mac executables!

           

          The other way to update COs is via a List Import in the Marketo IO. This seems to be a better choice for you.  A developer must be enlisted to write connected apps, this is not something to muddle through.
