Reporting on AutoResponders via API

Is any AutoResopnder data available through the API? For example, when I request the Email Campaign Collection (/v2/emailmarketing/campaigns) for a client, it does not return any AutoResponders, but only standard campaigns. Without AutoResponders showing up in that list, I don't see how to get the CampaignId for an AutoResopnder, and the CampaignId seems to be the key for all other AutoResopnder data.

 

I saw in another thread that some more AutoResponder data will be available in v3 of the API. Will that be out soon?

I'm still just not seeing how I could add the contacts added in the first step to the campaign before sending it?

You don't add a contact to a campaign, you add it to a list. Then you send the campaign to the list.

That's the part that I'm missing. How can I send a campaign to a list?

Ah -- that is a step I overlooked. Using PUT to the campaign after it is created, you can add a list to it:

https://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/email-campaigns/email-campaign-resource.html?method=PUT

 

In the JSON body, you set the list ID

"sent_to_contact_lists": [{"id": "1"}]
