400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Hello,

 

I'm getting two different errors. The application that we run every day is returning a 400: Bad Request error with an empty response body.  Strangely, I'm getting a different error when I run the same JSON through Mashery. It returns 415: Unsupported Media Type. The response body of that request is:

 

[{
   
"error_key":"http.header.content_type.invalid",
   
"error_message":"Invalid content type. API only supports application/json."
}]

 Running my JSON through the validator, it gives me an unhelpful error - stating that the beginning quote of the email_content data is to blame:

 

Parse error on line 9:
...   "email_content": "<html xmlns=\"http:
-----------------------^
Expecting 'STRING', 'NUMBER', 'NULL', 'TRUE', 'FALSE', '{', '['

I'm pretty sure the problem is due to one certain news entry, but I can't seem to understand why. The application checks for ISO 8859-1 non-compliant characters and weeds them out. After reviewing the JSON I am not finding anything wrong with it.

 

JSON:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

The first error you are receiving is returned if you have an invalid accept header.  If the accept header is provided, it must be application/json.  If you provide a different value for Accept, you'd receive a 415 unsupported content type error.

 

The second error from the validator doesn't look like it's related.  I put your JSON posted through a validator and it ran fine.  Also, it passes our Schema.  Are you sure you are setting the correct Accept header in your calls?

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Not sure, I don't think I set an accept header. I have added a request header though. My HTTP POST call looks like this:

 

string responseFromServer = string.Empty;
WebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(requestCall);
request.Method = "POST";
byte[] byteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(postData);
string authHeader = string.Format("Bearer {0}", ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["APIv2AccessToken"].ToString());
request.Headers.Add("Authorization", authHeader);
request.Headers.Add(HttpRequestHeader.ContentType.ToString(), "application/json");
request.ContentLength = byteArray.Length;
Stream dataStream = request.GetRequestStream();
dataStream.Write(byteArray, 0, byteArray.Length);
dataStream.Close();
using (WebResponse response = request.GetResponse())
{
Console.WriteLine(((HttpWebResponse)response).StatusDescription);
dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();
using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream))
{
responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();
}
}
dataStream.Close();
return responseFromServer;

 I haven't had a problem with my request headers before. Did something in the API change?

 

Thanks,

Paul

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Here is another JSON output of the email we tried to send today. This time running it through the JSON Lint validator returns that error message I posted above, at "email_content".

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Looks like there is some sort of confusion here.  When I copy/paste your JSON into the same validator, it passes for me.  Looks like something must be changing when you post your JSON in the forums editor.  Can you save the bad JSON into a file and either link it here or send it to us directly at webservices@constantcontact.com.

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Dave,

 

There is definitely some confusion going on here, because I just ran the JSON from my previous post through the JSONLint validator and got the same error. See below. At any rate, I have attached a text document containing today's raw JSON (for our newsletter). When I run it through the validator, it says Valid JSON. However, I just ran my code again (POST), and I received an error:

 

[{"error_key":"http.status.bad_request","error_message":"Invalid Content."}]

 

 Result of running 4/29 code into the validator:

Re: 400 (or 415?) Error posting campaigns.

Hi,

 

Sorry to hear about the issue. The error I got back when trying to post that campaign to my account was:

 

[{"error_key":"http.status.bad_request","error_message":"Your html code contains a url link to&nbsp                             \"http://www.law360.com/classaction/articles/525052/6-tips-for-addressing-cy-pres-awards-in-class-acti...<br />Hint: is there whitespace (space or carriage return) before or after the \"=\" in \"href=\" ? <br />For more information, please see our <a href=\"#\" onClick=\"WindowControl.openHelpWin('http://support2.constantcontact.com/CTCTSupportSiteFAQs'); return false;\">FAQs</a>"}]

 

Indeed, when I found and deleted the white space indicated, I had no problem creating the campaign to my account (changing the list id, and from/reply-to email address). Let me know if you still have issues.

Hi Shannon,

 

Sorry for the delayed response, but your fix worked. I accidently entered some line breaks as I tried to organize the messy HTML. Thanks!
