Create an unsassigned lead


We are creating leads through the api and I was quite surprised the leads are assigned to the user* who created the lead. In our case, that means an external app. Is it not possible to create a lead that isn’t assigned to anyone?

  • API User is a main/tech account. Not used by any of the team actually using pipedrive.


Hey Michiel,

Leads = deals?

No, I’m afraid like People, Organizations, and Activities, Deals also need to have an Owner. You can add user_id upon creation, but if left blank it will be auto-assigned to the User connected to the API token the request was made by.
