Authentication Issues

Read more...

Constant Contact supports using the both the OAuth 2.0 server flow and client flow for authentication. These are much simpler flows than the equivalents from OAuth 1.0a. The server flow is best when your application is using the Constant Contact API from within your webserver code (for example, from within PHP or Java running on the server.) The client flow makes it simple to obtain an access token when calling the Constant Contact API from client langauges such as javascript. Read on to learn more about how to update your applications to use OAuth 2.0.

Authentication Overview

by Administrator on ‎03-25-2011 04:07 PM

While the Constant Contact REST API currently supports several authentication models, at this point (summer 2012) we request that developers use the OAuth 2.0 authentication model.  We will be announcing the end of support for Basic Authentication soon, and we stronly encourage developers to begin switching 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.
