FindAccounts Service Operation - Customer Management

Gets a list of accounts owned by the specified customer that match the specified filter criteria.

Request Elements

The FindAccountsRequest object defines the body and header elements of the service operation request. The elements must be in the same order as shown in the Request SOAP.

Note

Unless otherwise noted below, all request elements are required.

Request Body Elements

Element Description Data Type
AccountFilter The criteria to use to filter the list of accounts. You can specify either an account name or an account number. If your filter value is of the form, Xnnnnn, where nnnnn is a series of digits, the operation filters by account number.

The filter value can contain a partial or full account name or number of the accounts that you want to get. The operation includes the account in the result if the name or number of the account begins with the specified filter value.

The operation performs a case-insensitive comparison when it compares your filter value to the account name or number. For example, if you specify "t" as the filter value, the list will include accounts whose names begin with "t" or "T".

Setting this element to an empty string is the same as calling the GetAccountsInfo.
string
CustomerId The identifier of the customer whose accounts you want to get.

If null, the operation searches for a match among all of the accounts of the customers that the user manages and owns.
long
TopN A nonzero positive integer that specifies the number of accounts to return in the result. You must specify a value from 1 through 5,000. int
