Person Retrieve API

Directly look up Person Profiles by their PDL ID

Overview

The Person Retrieve API allows you to use a PDL Person ID (like qEnOZ5Oh0poWnQ1luFBfVw_0000) to get back the data associated with that ID. A PDL ID is a unique and permanent identifier for each record in our dataset, and so this endpoint allows you to directly retrieve the data for the exact record you are interested in (see Persistent IDs).

The most common use case for this endpoint is to update or retrieve records for an ID you already have (typically from another endpoint or your data license file).
