The following htmlContent type is not impacted:
Here is an example payload from our endpoint documentation for creating an HTML email:
"name": "My Test Email",
"subject": "Test subject line",
"html": "<html><head></head><body>This is the email.</body></html>"
I've seen this confusion before and think it's important to clarify. For both emails and landing pages, there are three editors:
- Classic (aka "Design Blank Email" or "Blank Landing Page") - think of this as the ugly drag and drop with no grid-locking when designing and no responsiveness in the end result. Very little html editing options. This is going away with the next release. In the api it shows up as "type": "StructuredHtmlContent"
- Source (aka "Blank HTML Email" or "Blank HTML Landing Page") - Here your only option is to use your own HTML to build out the asset. This is not going away.
- Responsive (aka "Blank Responsive Email" or "Blank Responsive Landing Page") - the new drag and drop editor with preconfigured components, built in alignment layouts, and the ability to drop in html code snippets.
Yes, the reason is responsive emails are only supported via 2.0. You'll find a note under "New features" in the 493 Developer Release Notes and under "Platform Notices" in the 18A Developer Release Notes.
The response status also includes this detail. Here is an example response status from a test request:
404 htmlContent type of ResponsiveHtmlContent is only supported on corresponding 2.0 endpoint - <baseURL>/api/REST/2.0/assets/email/<id>"
I understand that this means that all emails and landing pages that were created with the "Blank Email" or "Blank Landing page" editor should be replaced before August, since we will not be able to edit them afterwards?
