Jump to: navigation, search

An object type identifier uniquely identifies an object type. It is used to specify object types in APIs.

There are two kinds of type identifiers:

  • objectName: This identifier is a human-readable name for both System Objects and Custom Objects.
  • objectID: This identifier is a human-readable name for System Objects (e.g. "cases"), but for Custom Objects, it is a computer-generated string with no humanly-interpretable semantic value (e.g. 123qwe456rty).
