Deleted Contacts

Is there a table which lists the IDs or deleted contacts?  Otherwise is there another way to know which contacts have been deleted recently?  I would prefer not to search each ID to see if it still exists in the contact table.

Thank you for any help provided


Hi SweetBox,

In the current API implementation there is no way to query for items that have been deleted.  I will ask our development team if we plan on exposing the recycle bin in our next release.


Hi Dave,

I am working on an integration project for Macromedia where the deleted object's information needs to be retrieved.
Is the recycle bin exposed currently? If not do you plan to do so?


The recycle bin is not exposed, but there is a getDeleted call which will return you a list of Ids of items deleted in a given timeframe.

But given the IDs the API is not able to retrieve the details for a given deleted object. How can it be done?



Hi Kartik,

Without access to the recycle bin, you can't get the details on a deleted object.


Wondering if the 5.0 allows us to pull deleted data from recycle bin through API call?
