    Hi Rohit,

    Great question, and as very often; it will depend on your use case. The import APIs are primarily designed for data migrations from a legacy identity provider or one off / regular imports of data from offline sources. The registration APIs are better suited if you are actually implementing a registration flow as they will allow you to securely interrupt and resume all the potential steps of a registration such as 2nd step registration, email verification, etc...

    The ScreenSets are a best practice implementation of those registration APIs (and more), and the IdentitySync component datasource.write.gigya.importAccount is an implementation of the importFullAccounts API to be used in ETL flows.

    Use your best judgment and leverage the best APIs for the relevant use-case. Don't hesitate to engage our professional services for support on projects as well.
