The introduction of the new Dotdigital with unified contacts means that there has been a major evolution in the way you can work with and analyse your data. In line with this, we’re developing a new V3 API service which allows you to make the most of the powerful features of the new Dotdigital.
Our currently available endpoints are in two categories:
Reference contacts in the V3 API
Unified contacts bring your data together so that a single contact can have multiple communication channel identifiers stored against it. A unified contact can be created with either an email address, a mobile number, or both.
In our new unified contacts compatible service we offer a flexible method of referencing a contact. You can refer to a contact using any one of its identifiers:
You must specify which identifier you are using in the API call.
We have two API call rate limiting schemes in use with Dotdigital APIs:
Flat rate limiting - This is our original rate limiting and is based on a given number of API calls per hour.
Tiered rate limiting - This is our preferred rate limiting and is based on API calls being in a tier with its own rate limit per minute.
The call rate limiting scheme you use is determined by the API user making the requests. Each API user is assigned a call rate limiting scheme when it is created.
