Upload new DSRs

How to submit a DSR from your server

Data Subject Requests (DSRs) typically come solely through the Privacy Center, but sometimes there are reasons to upload DSRs from other sources.

  • If you're just getting started, you might need upload a backlog of DSRs
  • You might plan to maintain a secondary channel for receiving DSRs (such as a button in a custom support console)
  • You may choose to use Transcend a means of erasing data across SaaS tools whenever a user deletes their account (fine by us!)

In these cases, you can choose to programmatically submit new DSRs to Transcend. Here's how:

POST https://api.transcend.io/v0/data-subject-request
Parameter
Type
Description

type

String

One of access, erasure, portability, rectification, objection, or restriction

identifiers

Object

This is an object that should match your DSR form. Typically it includes an email address.

is_verified

Boolean

Whether you have already verified the identity of the data subject (defaults to true)

const request = require('request');

const myDataUpload = getUserData();

request.post('https://api.transcend.io/v0/data-subject-request', {
  headers: {
    Authorization: ''
  },
  body: {
    type: 'erasure',
    identifiers: {
      email: 'mikebrook@gmail.com',
      first_name: 'Michael',
      last_name: 'Brook'
    }
  },
  json: true
});
import json
import urllib2

data = {
    'type': 'erasure',
    'identifiers': {
      'email': 'mikebrook@gmail.com',
      'first_name': 'Michael',
      'last_name': 'Brook'
    }
}

req = urllib2.Request('https://api.transcend.io/v0/upload')
req.add_header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
req.add_header('Authorization', '')

response = urllib2.urlopen(req, json.dumps(data))
curl -X POST "https://api.transcend.io/v0/data-subject-request" \
  -H "Authorization: " \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -d "{ type: 'erasure', identifiers: { email: 'mikebrook@gmail.com', first_name: 'Michael', last_name: 'Brook' } }"

Requires organization API key

Don't forget to include your organization API key in the Authorization header. Read more about Authentication here.
