email not sent/received using Email Deployment API

Hi Eloqua API team,

I am testing Eloqua Email Deployment API to send email to one contact using :

POST api/rest/2.0/assets/email/deployment endpoint.

I received success status but the current status of the deployment remains in "Draft" stage forever.

Also I never receive the email from the deployment.

When doing a GET api/rest/2.0/assets/email/deployment/{id} I got the following: (just partial output).

Can you advise if I have done anything wrong here. I don't see any following up API calls are required to complete the deployment in the doc... thanks,

Wayne Chan
