Removing duplicates using SOAP API

Post by bourneagain » Tue Aug 11, 2015 1:11 am

Hello everyone,
We have been using Bullhorn CRM for the management of our leads and contacts. Last time when some of our data was inserted into Bullhorn database, it resulted into duplication of thousands of our records.
So I was wondering whether other than the manual method, is there any possibility this task of de-duplication can be accomplished through any of the APIs(REST/SOAP)?
I understand that direct deletion of records is not supported via APIs but is the 'merge' operation supported in any way which might let us merge the duplicate records with possibly a few different components?

Resources available to us: Copy of our entire Bullhorn database installed in our local MS-SQL server, REST and SOAP API handlers
