Eloqua's REST service supports four different verbs : Get, Post, Put and Delete. In today's post, we'll briefly describe each verb and provide examples of usage.

 

GET

Get is used to retrieve a representation or API entity from a resource. Can be used to retrieve one or more entities.

Examples :

The following request will retrieve a single entity (Email) with ID = 123

 

The following request will retrieve a list of entities (Email) containing the word : "Demand*"

 

POST

Post is used to create a new resource.

Example :

The following request will create a new entity (Email) from the body of the request

 

PUT

Put is used to update a resource.

Example :

The following request will update an existing entity (Email with identifier 123) from the body of the request

 

DELETE

Delete is used to delete a resource.

Example :

The following request will delete an entity (Email with identifier 123) from the body of the request

 

So, we've Authenticated, and learned about HTTP Verbs, next we look at Eloqua REST API - URL Parameters

 

We hope that you find this helpful.

 

Thanks,
