* For Person Registrations (5) report, the lastupdatedatetime considers not only the changes on the specific Registration, but also changes on the Person. E.g. if the Lastname of a Person is updated, the lastupdatedatetime will be updated on all registrations of that person.

Below is an example of the resulting JSON (example from report Person Registrations):

Parameter changedAfter

Also, for those reports, we have created new optional query param for API called ”changedAfter”. This parameter accepts datetime (in UTC) in format YYYYMMDDHHmmSS and extracts only the records that are changed after specified changedAfter datetime parameter.

In the example below only records changed after 31 May 2022 09:00 AM UTC will be returned.

The changedAfter parameter is very useful if you want to sync data from large COMET reports with your local database on a regular basis. It allows you to only fetch those records that have been changed since the last sync, instead of always fetching all data.

Parameter uids

API calls for reports that have a defined Unique ID (from the table above) can also be filtered using that field. Filtering is done using an optional query parameter called “uids” which is a comma separated list of appropriate IDs (ex. &uids=8075816,8075824).

If the report does not have a defined Unique ID and the uids param is used an error will be returned.
