Perform a Data Extract

This page contains information about performing a data extract using the SOAP API.

You can use a data extract to pull information from your Marketing Cloud account and place it in a file on an FTP site for use in a different system (such as a web analytics tool).

Use the code below as a model to construct your own API call. Note that the ExtractRequest ID can be obtained by performing a Retrieve call on the ExtractDescription object. This call returns all possible IDs for the extracts available to your account.

Use the sample code below to construct a data extract to extract data from a data extension.
