No API access

Good morning,

 

We had a little problem with our API login if we use https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/northernrockieslodge/ and type in our Username and PW so we get a error back.

But the same Username and PW works for the admin page with no problems.

 

Kind regards

Simon

Re: No API access

Hello Simon,

 

When accessing our API using Basic Authentication (which visiting that URL through a browser would be using), the 'username' we are looking for is actually in the format of {apiKey}%{username}. You can request and retrieve your API Key by logging in at API Keys.

 

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this. Thanks!
