Search for New Prospects with the Data.com Search API

When your Data.com Prospector or Data.com Clean contract expires, Data.com features, objects, and fields will be removed from your org. To support customers’ needs around compliance and to remain a leader in trust and privacy, Salesforce removed all contact data from the Data.com service on February 1, 2021.

For more information, see Data.com Prospector and Clean Retirement.

Search two Data.com objects that contain company and person records.

DatacloudContact

Records for people listed in the Data.com database.

Records can be added to Salesforce as contacts and leads.

DatacloudCompany

Records for companies listed in the Data.com database.

Records can be added to Salesforce as accounts.

Use a SOQL query to search either object.

This example shows a SOQL query used to find Data.com contacts. Include the ContactId in the SELECT statement because you need the ContactId to purchase the contact.

The results contain the fields you specified in the SELECT statement. Values for some fields are hidden until you purchase the record.
