Authentication Overview

Administrator

The Constant Contact REST API currently supports the OAuth 2.0 authentication model.  Basic Authentication is no longer supported, and we strongly encourage developers to switch to OAuth 2.0 as soon as possible. Both the Server and Client flows from the OAuth 2.0 spec are now supported, so developers can choose the best approach for their application.
