Bulk Select Records

Use this API call to select or request record information in bulk using the Shape lead ID

POST /bulk/lead/select

To select records in bulk, send an authorized POST request to https://secure-api.setshape.com/api/bulk/lead/select


This API endpoint accepts an object having two keys, “ids” which are the lead IDs and “fields” which is the fields needed to fetch the lead IDs. Please read “How to get field names for update lead” section:

  • ids

    This is required in order to get lead information from Shape. Please list all lead IDs you'd like to select. This is accepted as an array.

  • fields

    The field mappings that you're trying to gather are accepted as an array. Find the available field mappings within the "Marketing Sources" settings page. Use the "Field Name" exactly as it appears in the field name column. If you'd like to send in custom field values, first create custom fields within your system and the custom mappings will automatically appear in your system's available field mappings.

Request Header

The authentication token must be passed in the request header for every API request. You can find and generate your authentication token in your system settings page under “API Integrations.”

*fields_not_found: This response key is an array indicating items passed through the API endpoint, but do not exists within Shape. If this is empty, then all items were successfully found.

How to Get Field Names

Field names can be found within your CRM System’s settings pages under: Settings > Marketing Sources > Edit Any Marketing Source > Campaign Source Post URL Instructions.

After navigating to the marketing sources settings page and opening up a campaign, scroll to the bottom of the page to the “Campaign Source Post URL Instructions” section. Here, you will find a searchable table with a breakdown of all of the field names available for use. These field names can also be exported to a CSV via the “Export” dropdown.
