How to get the External ID using the Product ID?

Former Member

Hello experts, The customer requires that a BO can be imported using either the Product ID or the External ID. Once imported, whichever one was not supplied must be generated from the other. When imported using the external Id I can get the product ID, this is fine. However, my question is: When I have the Product ID, how can I get the External ID?

Hi Katie,

By External ID do you mean an identifier of a corresponding object in a remote system?

Thanks,

The mapping between local object's and remote object's are held in the BO ObjectIdentifierMapping.

So you need to query the BO using your local ID, you should then be able to get the Remote/External ID in the results.

Thanks,

Will

Thanks Pradeep, but this thread is actually doing the opposite.

There they have the External ID and want the Product ID but I have the Product ID and want the External ID.

Reply above from Will has solved my issue.

Thanks!
