Custom Fields

Skyvia does not support custom Freshdesk fields having double quotation marks in their names.


When querying Freshdesk tickets via API v2, the amount of required Freshdesk API calls doubles if you query the ticket Description field. It’s better not to query it if you don’t need it.


Information about ticket attachments is stored in the TicketAttachment object.

Each record in this table corresponds to the single attachment existing in the Ticket object and contains the attachment body binary data. The TicketAttachment object supports the INSERT and DELETE DML operations.

To successfully insert data to the TicketAttachment table, you must map the TicketId, FileName, and Body fields. You can pass the Body values in base64 format.
