Changes To The Constituent API

The Constituent API was updated on 9/14/2016. See our Changelog entries for more information.

Breaking Change Planned

The Constituent (List) endpoint will no longer return deceased constituents by default. Instead, they will be included by setting a new include_deceased option to true.
We will also change the following query string parameters to snake case:
  • includeInactive will be include_inactive on Email address (Get list)Online presence (Get list)Phone (Get list)Rating (Get list)Rating categories (Get), and Rating sources (Get)
  • categoryName will be category_name on Custom field category values (Get list)
  • searchText will be search_text on Constituent search (Get).


We added the following endpoints: 
  • Rating sources (Get)
  • Rating categories (Get)
  • Action attachment (Patch)
  • Action attachment (Delete)
  • Constituent attachment (Patch)
  • Constituent attachment (Delete)


New tags included in the request will be automatically added to the Document Tags table when adding or updating attachments.
