Getting error response 404 when deleting lists.

Getting error response 404 when deleting lists.


I am trying to delete a contact list. The response object I am getting back is 404 and the text says '[{"error_key":"http.status.not_found","error_message":"No matching resource was found for the supplied URL."}]'

Why is this error being caused? 

Code (python):

headers_deletelist = {

'Authorization': 'Bearer x',
'X-Originating-Ip': 'x',

rsp = requests.delete('', headers = headers_deletelist)


Thank you in advance. 




Thank you for reaching out to the API Support team here at Constant Contact.


That error typically means that there is no list with that ID in the account you are calling. If you were to make a GET call to that endpoint (, do you get a list in response?
