Release Notes - 10/26/2012 Release

Constant Contact will be doing a release currently planned for 10/26/2012.  In this release will be several updates to the API services, most of which are bug fixes.  Here is a list of all the updates we’re doing and a description of the change.  Please post any questions you have below.

Account Locked Error Message

We fixed a defect where a 401 Unauthorized was incorrectly being returned when an account was locked.  We are now correctly returning a 403 Forbidden error with a clear error   message when an account is locked.

Inconsistent Response Format due to Accept Header

We fixed an issue where inconsistent response body formats were returned with bad XML formatting if the Accept header was not supplied for some endpoints.  We have corrected this by setting a default value to all endpoints affected by this if the Accept   header was not provided.  Endpoints affected by this change are Event Marketing, Account Provisinoing, Account Billing and Images/Folders.  No formatting is changing, only correcting an issue that could result in incorrect formatting being returned sporadically.

Image API Upload Limit Fix

We fixed an issue that would allow more than 5 images to be uploaded to accounts that do not have the MyLibrary Plus feature. This would cause images to exist in an   account that an account owner would not be able to see or use.  Now, a 400 error will be returned with the error message of “Your have exceeded your maximum image quota for My Library Basic. Upgrade to My Library Plus or delete images to add more space.”

OAuth Grant Access 500 Error

We fixed an issue where clicking “Grant Access” multiple times, which some users on slow connections would do if the page did not load immediately, would cause a 500 Internal Server Error to occur.  The OAuth flow will now correctly proceed instead of throwing an error if the user clicks the button multiple times.

Campaign Activities Bounce “next” link does not return bounces

We fixed an issue where the “next” link returned in Campaign Bounce Activities collection. When more than 50 bounce activities exist, the next page would now correctly return the next 50 bounce activities.  Previously it would return an empty XML document.  We are now correctly returning the next 50 bounces with a valid next link if there are more than 100 bounces.
