    The get funds API does not return the parent fund code. This is important fund information that should be returned with this API. Why isn’t it being returned? Is this an oversight? A bug? This is SalesForce case 647535. Thanks, Margaret

    Hi,
    The GET funds API returns a list including allocated funds that are active in the current date (based on the related fiscal period).
    I is meant for getting a list of possible funds for ordering/invoicing. It is not meant for managing the funds hierarchy.
    Can you please give more details, what is the need for getting the parent fund code?

    Thanks,
    Tamar

    Hi Tamar,

    BC has been consulting with Josh W and Oren F over the past year on how to build a data warehouse here at BC. We have been using the Alma publishing profiles and the Alma APIs to pull data out of Alma for our DWH. We use the Funds API to move the active fund data out of Alma and into our DWH. But it is missing the parent fund code which is data we need to build meaningful reports that include fund information.

    Hi Margaret,
    Adding more information to the funds APIs is on our roadmap.

    Best regards,
    Tamar
