Base Resource URI

For Production, use: https://ows.omeda.com/webservices/rest/brand/{brandAbbreviation}/omail/deployment/audience/status/{listId}/*

For Testing, use: https://ows.omedastaging.com/webservices/rest/brand/{brandAbbreviation}/omail/deployment/audience/status/{listId}/*

is the abbreviation for the brand to which the data is being posted.
listId
is the numeric list id returned from Deployment Add Audience.

Technical Requirements

The HTTP header must contain the following elements:

x-omeda-appid
a unique id provided to you by Omeda to access your data. The request will fail without a valid id.
content-type
a content type supported by this resource. See Supported Content Types for more details. If omitted, the default content type is application/json.

Supported Content Types

If omitted, the default content type is application/json.

JSON
application/json

JSON is the preferred data exchange format, because it is lightweight and, in most cases, faster to process and utilizes less bandwidth. There are many available open-source JSON libraries available. See json.org for details.

Supported HTTP Methods

There is one HTTP method supported:

GET
See W3C’s GET specs for details.

Successful Submission

{
  "SubmissionId" : "C95AE90C-BEC6-41F2-91E2-2BA9168D1D1F",
  "ListId":100345,
  "TrackId":"FOO020030012",
  "AssignmentStatus":"IN_PROCESS",
  "SplitNumber": 1,
  "RecipientList": "subscribers.csv"
}

Failed Submission

Potential errors:

File not found for audience list id '{listId}'
No deployment found for  '{listId}'
Deployment '{trackId}' associated with this file was created within the Omail portal and is not eligible for API access.
Deployment '{trackId}' assocated with this file has been edited from the Omail portal and is not eligible for API access. Last edited by {userName} on {changedDate}.
List removed: Audience list '{fileName}' was removed by {userId} on {removalDate}.

A failed POST submission may be due to several factors:

Status Description
400 Bad Request Typically, this error occurs when the request does not follow the specifications.
403 Forbidden Typically, this error occurs when the credentials are erroneous. Potentially, an incorrect x-omeda-appid.
404 Not Found Typically, this error occurs with a malformed URL or the resource that is searched for is not found. This can occur if the ListId submitted in the url is not found in Omail.
405 Method Not Allowed Typically, this error occurs when the resource accessed is not allowed by the HTTP Method utilized. Make sure you employ the correct HTTP Method (GET) for this request.
409 Conflict Typically, this error occurs when their was a problem during the list assignment process associated with the content of the list. Example: File contained no valid recipient records.

This is not an exhaustive list of errors, but common ones. If an error occurs repeatedly, please contact your Omeda representative.
