Connector Specifics

Object Peculiarities


When you import data to the Tickets object, you must map either CustomerId or CustomerEmail. Otherwise, Teamwork Desk API returns an error: “detail”: “must be set”, “source”: “customer”.

Teamwork Desk supports creating scheduled tickets (ticket message is sent at a specified time in the future, not immediately). For that, map the nested fields of the ScheduledEmail object (ScheduledEmail_TimeZoneId, ScheduledEmail_SendAt and ScheduledEmail_StatusId) together with the required ticket fields. A newly created record appears in the Tickets object after the scheduled email is sent.


To successfully insert records to the Customers object, map the Contacts array field that must contain at least one contact with email. An example of the valid Contacts field value is the following:

    "isMain": true,
    "type": "email",
    "value": "[email protected]"
    "isMain": false,
    "type": "email",
    "value": "[email protected]"


The TicketId, UserId, and TimelogsId are the foreign keys.

Teamwork Desk API allows inserting any values to these fields.

Inserting incorrect values to the TicketId, UserId and TimelogsId may cause invalid object relations.

CreatedById, UpdatedById, DeletedById Fields

The fields CreatedById, UpdatedById, and DeletedById are not used as foreign keys for object relations. In some objects, these fields store system information and display values which don’t exist in the Users object, which may lead to errors in the Replication.

Custom Fields

Skyvia supports custom fields for the Tickets object. Custom fields following types:

Teamwork Desk Data Type Skyvia Type
Single-Line Text String
Multi-Line Text String
Dropdown String
Checkbox String
Date Date
Numbers Double

Teamwork Desk allows users to have multiple Inboxes for a single account. The set of custom fields may vary for tickets from different Inboxes.

When querying data from the Tickets object, you get all the existing ticket records from all Inboxes and all the existing custom fields. Each Tickets record in the query result belongs to some Inbox and displays the custom field values corresponding to this Inbox. All other custom fields which don’t belong to this Inbox return empty results.

Custom field values support Insert and Update operations.

Incremental Replication and Synchronization

Skyvia supports Replication with Incremental Updates for all the objects EXCEPT TicketTags, TicketTasks.

Skyvia supports Synchronization for the Companies, Customers, CustomFields, HelpdocArticles, HelpdocArticlesKeywords, HelpdocsCategories, HelpdocsSites, Inboxes, Tags, TicketPriorities, Tickets, TicketSources, TicketStatues, TicketTypes, and Timelogs objects.
