PUT multiple Custom Field Values Async

This endpoint is used to asynchronously insert and update Custom Field Values. Use this endpoint for improved performance. Maximum of 10,000 objects per request.

Update Multipicker Custom Field Values For A List Of Objects
Open Recipe

When updating custom field values, this API runs two background jobs. The API response returns the ID of the first job. Use that ID to query the Jobs API. The response from the Jobs API returns the ID of the second job.

If either job fails, you must retry the API request.

As background for why we run two jobs, Alation is transitioning from storing custom field values in one data store to another, faster data store. To keep data consistent and performant during the transition, we write asynchronously to both places. Eventually the second one will be removed.
