Is there an API where I can get all sales stages from an organization?

Is a sales stage equivalent to a layout? I found this: Get all page-layouts for an object via API and maybe it's the same question, but I'm not sure.

In the REST API, if you hit the Opportunity/describe endpoint, current url seems to be:


The sales stages are in the response, in fields->n->picklistValues, where n is the index of the field whose label is Stage.

  • Except that editing the sales stages using the Customize feature and then re-running this API request did not get me my custom sales stage. Back to looking for more info.

    Turns out SF has slow caching and the edits were available the next day.

  • Hey, @freyley, it looks like your URL is using API 20.0. YOu may want to just update that to API 30.0, which is the current version with Spring '14.

You need to be using the Schema and describe results in order to find all of the Stages. That field is a 'picklist' field. Layouts and Stages are completely different things.
