Email Deployment Cancel


The Deployment Cancel API provides the ability to cancel a deployment. Please be warned, once cancelled, a deployment will not be sent and cannot be edited further. If you need to unschedule a deployment and continue editing, please see the Deployment Unschedule API.

An HTTP POST request is used when canceling a deployment.

Base Resource URI

For Production, use:{brandAbbreviation}/omail/deployment/cancel/*

For Testing, use:{brandAbbreviation}/omail/deployment/cancel/*
is the abbreviation for the brand to which the data is being posted.

Technical Requirements

The HTTP header must contain the following elements:

a unique id provided to you by Omeda to access your data. The request will fail without a valid id.
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 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 for details.

Supported HTTP Methods

There is one HTTP method supported:

See W3C’s POST specs for details.

POST method is used when assigning a list to a deployment split that does not have an existing list attached.

Field Definition

The following tables describe the hierarchical data elements.

List Elements

Attribute Name Required? Data Type Description
UserId required string UserId of the omail account authorized for this deployment. This is generally the ‘OwnerUserId’ specified in the Deployment Api
TrackId required string TrackId is the unique identifier for the deployment.

POST JSON Request Example: When cancelling a deployment

    "UserId" : "omailAccount1",
    "TrackId": "FOO0102003002"


Response Examples

Responses possible: a successful POST (200 OK Status) or a failed POST (400 Bad Request/403 Forbidden/404 Not Found/405 Method Not Allowed Statuses). See W3C’s Status Codes.

Successful Submission

A successful submission will cancel the specified deployment. A successful POST request will return a Url that can be used to retrieve deployment information such as link tracking, delivery statistics, deployment status, history, etc. (See Deployment Lookup Resource). A successful request will also return a unique submissionId that can be used as needed.

JSON Example

      "SubmissionId" : "C95AE90C-BEC6-41F2-91E2-2BA9168D1D1E"

Failed Submission

A failed request will return a unique submissionId that can be used as needed.

Potential errors:

The value '{stringField}' for field '{fieldName}' exceeded a max length of {maximumAllowed}.
The field '{fieldName}' is required.
Deployment '{trackId}' was sent on {sendDate}.
Deployment '{trackId}' has been previously cancelled.
User '{userName}' is not authorized to cancel this deployment.

A failed 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 or a UserId that is not authorized to edit the specified deployment.
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 a TrackId submitted is not found in our system.
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 appropriate HTTP Method (POST) for this request.

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