Ready to build? Request access to define Custom Objects via your public OAuth App

Who should request access?

If you are building an app that could benefit by creating custom objects in multiple user accounts, please submit a request and be among the first developers to gain access to this powerful functionality.

Custom objects can only be defined via your public OAuth app for customers with at least one of the following: Marketing Hub Enterprise, Sales Hub Enterprise, Service Hub Enterprise, CMS Hub Enterprise, and Operations Hub Enterprise

Why do I need to request access to create custom objects using OAuth for my public app?

Custom objects can have a big impact on customer accounts and their data. At this time, an account with at least one Enterprise subscription plan can have a maximum of 10 custom objects defined. With this in mind, HubSpot is closely monitoring the implementation of new multi-account objects.

*Custom Object limit increases available for purchase to define more objects and store more records across all of your custom objects in HubSpot in the HubSpot's Products and Services Catalog.

What are the benefits of defining custom objects via OAuth?

Any integration designed for multi-customer use or to list an app on the HubSpot’s App Marketplace and to earn the “HubSpot Certified App” must be built as an app using HubSpot’s OAuth protocol. See listing requirements and steps to list your app integration on the App Marketplace.
