Hi Where in API v2 do I find the field Identifier ? We use this field from api v1 to drive some behave in our system. Thanks

We do not currently expose the Identifier field in API v2. Please give us your use case for this as we may be able to add this to our roadmap for a future release.

If you were filtering your forms by the Identifier, it may also work for you to filter by form name if the Identifier is also used to name the form. For example, if your template was named "Invoice", and you used the Customer Name as the Identifier, you might be able to pull the invoices for that customer like this:

https://api.goformz.com:443/v2/formz?name=Invoice - John Doe

This search is a "starts with" search, so you will have to include "Invoice - " at the start, and then put the name you wanted to query.

Thanks for your reply
Identifier field contains numeric ranges and for each range the form and all its data gets saved on different database. Something like from 0 to 1000 the data is stored in db1, from 1001 to 2000 is stored in db2.
Let me know if there is any chance of this field gets exposed on V2 otherwise we won't be able to migrate all our clients to v2.

Will this be added to your backlog ? it's a show stopper for us to migrate to V2 without the Identifier getting exposed.

We have added this to our feature request list and hopefully get it added to the roadmap. However, we don't have a date for release as it is not on the roadmap at this time.
