When you have completed the "Getting Started" steps listed above you can start building your application. There are some things to know about MailUp REST API:

  • MailUp REST API use Oauth2 and requires a token refresh. You can use the available samples as an example of the expected way to refresh the authorization token
  • By properly setting request header you can set response format as JSON or XML
  • Application keys of MailUp Demo Clients shall not be used in a production environment. Get your keys for free by activating an account
  • An application is strongly related to a couple of application keys but it can be used for the integration with any MailUp console account

 

Geting stuck while developing your application?

We assume that you are a developer and you have carefully read the "Getting Started" section. Before contacting us please consider that most of the questions that we receive are about

  • Authentication (token has to be refreshed, please use available samples as guidelines) 
  • Wrong credentials (e.g. trying to access to your production console account with the credentials of your developer console account, or viceversa)
  • Unexpected behavior of an API call that is due to unchecked error codes that were returned by previous API calls.
  • Developers that unfamiliar with MailUp terminology (Resource Access section and related links should be helpful)
