HTTP Post

I have a request from a third-party vendor to do a HTTP Post to Marketo. I've read through some of the past discussions, but I'm not clear on exactly what I need to provide to this vendor. I've put together a landing page/form for this project, but I'm not sure what we need to pull off of that for the vendor.

Thanks

Re: HTTP Post

I'm getting a 404 error when I use this method to determine the POST url.  Is there any other place we should be posting this data?

Re: HTTP Post

If you get a 404, that usually means the munchkinId is not correctly specified. Please check spelling and case

Hope that helps,

Re: HTTP Post

Thanks Jep, but the munchkinId is correct.  I'm sending it as part of the post data though, was it supposed to be appended to the URL as well?

Re: HTTP Post

You may want to open a support ticket and specify the exact URL and all the parameters you're passing. If some of the required parameters are missing or incorrect it will give a 404. So a 404 error is not necessarily a sign that the URL is incorrect.

Add a few things--a correct submission return code we see is 200 and not 302. In addition, if passing multipe-value (from a multi-select picklist), do not pass a multiple key/value pairs, instead pass them as as a single key and the values as a semi-colon delimited list.

Things we learned the hard way
  • Make sure your firewall isn't blocking your posts (took a while for us to figure out in the test environment).
  • Firefox add-on called Poster is your testing friend
  • 404 is always returned if there's anything wrong with the post
  • Fields are supposedly case sensitive

Re: HTTP Post

Came by this post - great article Jep. Btw, now the form endpoints now use your CNAME subdomain instead of POST URL
