An object type identifier uniquely identifies an object type. It is used to specify object types in APIs.

There are two kinds of type identifiers:

  • objectName: This identifier is a human-readable name for both Built-in or CRM objects and Custom Objects.
  • objectID: This identifier is a human-readable name for Built-in or CRM objects (e.g. CASE), but for Custom Objects, it is a computer-generated string with no humanly-interpretable semantic value (e.g. 123qwe456rty).

Note: The Object Name is typically used as the identifier, because it is human-readable for both Built-in or CRM objects and Custom Objects. Object ID can be used, as well, but it is only human-readable for Built-in or CRM objects.
