Accounts API Argument Changes

    This page maps old Accounts API arguments to the new argument names.

    Individuals and companies used to share many of the same arguments. With the new Persons API and other changes, many of these arguments now have new names specific to individuals and companies. Existing Account arguments that have not changed are not listed on this page.
