Form Field Requirements for Writing to a Form via API

When a form is written to via API rather than by a human, does it matter which fields are actually on the form? Forgive my lack of technical precision here but part of this process is mysterious to me. I'm talking about a situation in which I provide the Form embed code to someone so that they can fish out the Form ID, Munchkin ID, etc. and then they "write to" the form so that a "Fill Out Form" event shows up in the activity log - but the person hasn't actually filled out that form - the information has been collected via some other means outside of Marketo and then provided to the form via API.


It's my impression that in this scenario, it doesn't matter what fields are on the form or whether they are required or not. Is that true?


Sanford Whiteman - I'm sure you know the answer to this.


Thanks in advance!
