Marketo API read data from FTP server?

Does the Marketo API have capability to read data hosted on an FTP server?  Currently we use a separate application to digest the file and transfer it to Marketo, but it'd be great if we could just ingest it directly from Marketo.

Re: Marketo API read data from FTP server?

Nope.

The Marketo (REST) APIs are inbound APIs.

A service that you call as a webhook can read data from an FTP box, but it would still need to make a separate inbound REST connection to Marketo to upload the file contents. Triggering via webhook helps you avoid an external scheduler, but it's still custom code doing the download-reupload and not a huge leg up.
