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

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!
