Could I get some suggestions and help getting pointed in the right direction? I'd really like to get a clear idea what to do, where to start. This is on the edge of my abilities - I'm hoping I can get a certain amount done, before having to involve our already-busy developers.
We want to set up a form that submits/retrieves/interacts with Marketo, and the ability to submit info to a 3rd-party database. We want to do this using the REST API. I see several links to general resources, that list objects and endpoints and, and, and... boom. My head exploded.
For a beginner in REST API, that's like throwing every word in the dictionary at me. I look at words that don't look like they have anything to do with what I want. They may, but I don't know where to start. I just want to know how to compose my one sentence, and then grow from there. Are there any start-to-finish examples of what I want to do. That's how I learn best.
Hopefully that analogy made sense.
Why do you want to use the REST API as opposed to the Form Editor, if you don't speak REST?
My REST abilities would be irrelevant, if it was the correct solution, though.
It's a good idea to ignore anything that suggests using the rate-limited SOAP or REST API to submit Marketo forms.
Couple inaccuracies in that blog post:
