Deleted persons

#1

Hello :slight_smile:

I try to get alle deleted persons from the pipedrive API but found no solution.
With filters:
v1/persons?filter_id=1412&api_token=

Or “status=deleted”
v1/persons?status=deleted&api_token=

I get no results.
May some have an good idea?

Regards

Hi. :wave:

There’s no direct way to retrieve deleted persons. Unlike deals, which are kept with a status set on deleted, persons are actually deleted.

I’m afraid the only way to retrieve deleted persons is by contacting the support.

If you need to keep contacts idle or hidden in the future, I’d suggest creating a custom field called for example “idle” and using that instead of deleting the contact. :frowning:

Hi Dani,

but it should be possible with the active_flag. When I try to export only a single person it’s possible.
v1/persons/{id}?api_token=

So I can’t understand why it should not be possible to get the all deleted ones. The problem is that we can’t update this field when the data is missing

v1/persons?active_flag=false&filter_id=xxxx&api_token=
