Update based on field
If each record in your API response has an id field or some other unique field you can use this as the basis for updating the records in your output table. This makes the update far more robust as Data Fetcher will match each entity to the relevant record rather than naiively using the order of the records.

Update based on field

  • You will need to have run the request at least once to have created the possible fields.
  • Click
    to open the advanced options.
  • Select either the Update or Overwrite request write mode.
  • Under Update Based on Field, select the field you want in the dropdown.
If you are running on multiple records, you usually want Update based on Field set to 'None'. Data Fetcher will then use each record's position in the table/view to update it.
