"External ID" Concept


How does one integrate Customer Accounts/Companies from an ERP which would be the system of record for Customers, using some kind of an “external id” to match back for updates to the Company record that originally got inserted. I haven’t found anything in the Company API documentation in this regards. I’m sure this type of integration has been done by others , but how, it’s unusual for an application not to be able to store an alternative or external id for integration purposes.


I guess I'm is the exact same spot as you where - We have imported companies and added the external id as a custom property - but it does not look like there is a method to search for companies by other properties then the HubSpot record id. Did you find a good solution?
