Process to integrate with my client's Constant Contact lists

Hi:

 

I have a client that uses Constant Contact.  They want us to integrate their website with 2 lists in their Constant Contact account.  As a developer, do I need to register and obtain an API key/credentials as shown at http://developer.constantcontact.com/get-started.html .  Or do they generate keys within their Constant Contact account and create a logon for me to access heir account?  In general I’m asking what is the correct process.  Their web site is a custom ASP.NET application, not a CMS that already has a CC plug-in.

 

Thank you!

Re: Process to integrate with my client's Constant Contact lists

Hi Bob,

Yes you will want to create a developer account and obtain an API key as described in the getting started section.  The API key will be completely different than the user's login credentials and is a way of recognizing which application is talking to the Constant Contact server as well as what permissions/ rights the application has.

 

Once you register for your account, and generate the API key, you will then want to have them enter their login credentials to generate an Access Token while you are logged into your Mashery account (or if you have their credentials you can do this yourself).  The Access Token is a secure way used to identify which Constant Contact account the API should be linking to.

We also have a C#/ .net SDK that may be helpful: https://github.com/constantcontact/.net-sdk

If you have any questions or need any help just let me know!

Thanks,

Mike
