    Hi Anusha,

    We release major updates quarterly, so the earlier release would be March and the next June. We'll review the changes for the get API and udpate the ETA.

    1. Get API - we are happy to get the same functionality similar to getExportDataList for the YFS_IMPORT table

    2. Update API - we will use the existing API, no further changes required.

    When can the GET API be provided on SaaS, this is required for our testing - which begins on the 15th of Feb - can you pls earliest ETA for this API to be made available.

    Hi Anusha,

    Following up on pt 2 - ability to update call to set the status to "read".

    As Aaron mentioned, the changeImportDataStatus API was created for the very purpose of marking the records from 00 (not yet processed) to 10 (processed). This API updates the yfs_import.status column.

    Do let us know if there's a different use case you are encountering.

    Thank you for submitting your idea.

    For (1) - we will look into adding a get API for the YFS_IMPORT table similar to the getExportDataList API in a future release.

    For (2) - does the changeExportDataStatus and changeImportDataStatus API meet your requirement, or is there something further required?
