Highlighted rows are indexable / searchable and one is usually required in the WHERE portion of the query.

Name Type Description

recipients array The user IDs of the recipients of the thread.
updated_time int The created_time of the most recent message in the thread.
parent_message_id string The ID of the message from which this thread was branched, or 0 if this thread is not a branch. The parent_message_id is a concatenation of the thread ID and the message ID, joined by an underscore.

Examples

Get all threads in a user's Inbox.

SELECT ... FROM thread WHERE folder_id = 0 LIMIT 20

Search a user's Inbox for threads containing 'hello'.

SELECT ... FROM thread WHERE CONTAINS('hello')

Get all unread threads in a user's Inbox.

SELECT ... FROM thread WHERE folder_id = 0 AND unread != 0

Notes

  • Searching the Inbox does not currently include messages sent by an object.
  • To get started, as a developer you can access the Inbox APIs via the read_mailbox permission in order to develop and test your application. To launch your application to all users, please apply to the Inbox API whitelist.
