The REST API and SOAP API use different naming conventions for lead fields.

Retrieve the List of Field Names

You can retrieve the list of all supported field names available on your lead records by using the REST Describe Lead endpoint.

Alternatively, you can use the Marketo UI as follows:

1. Navigate to Admin > Field Management menu.


2. Click on the Export Field Names menu item, and you’ll be prompted to save a file named Fields.xls.

3. The columns named “REST API Name” and “SOAP API Name” in this spreadsheet lists all field names.
