Look up profiles in three easy steps

Our Person Retrieve API is built for developers, by developers.


Find PDL IDs

PDL IDs are provided anywhere we provide our Person Dataset, regardless of how that profile was accessed. For example: person profiles from the Person Enrichment API, Person Search API, Company Insights Field Bundles and Data License flat files all contain PDL IDs.


Query Person Retrieve API

Provide the PDL ID for the record you would like to access to the Person Retrieve API.


Get your results

Get up the best matching result containing a standardized entity record with a unique identifier. Use the unique identifier to build precise queries for the Person or Company Search APIs.
