Email Deployment Remove Audience

Email Deployment Remove Audience


The Deployment Remove Audience API provides the ability to remove a list that is currently assigned to a deployment.

At the time the call is made, the system will first check that the list name submitted in the request JSON is indeed currently assigned to the deployment. If it is assigned, the service will unassign the list from the deployment.

If the list is not found assigned to the deployment, the service will return a 404 not found response.

Please keep the following in mind: If the first call to remove a list succeeds the response will be 200. If the same call is made again, the response will be a 404 error with a description that the deployment does not have an assigned list (because you removed it in your previous call).

An HTTP POST request is used when remove a list that is assigned to a deployment.

JSON is the preferred data exchange format, because it is lightweight and, in most cases, faster to process and utilizes less bandwidth. There are many available open-source JSON libraries available. See for details.

Supported HTTP Methods

There is one HTTP method supported:POSTSee W3C’s POST specs for details.

POST method is used when assigning a list to a deployment split that does not have an existing list attached.

Response Examples

Responses possible: a successful POST (200 OK Status) or a failed POST (400 Bad Request/403 Forbidden/404 Not Found/405 Method Not Allowed Statuses). See W3C’s Status Codes.

Successful Submission

A successful submission will remove the specified list assigned to the specified split. The response object will contain the TrackId of the deployment, a unique ‘SubmissionId’, and a url to call the Deployment Lookup API for this deployment.

JSON Example

      "SubmissionId" : "C95AE90C-BEC6-41F2-91E2-2BA9168D1D1E",
      "Url" : "{brandAbbreviation}/omail/deployment/lookup/FOO0200300112/*"

Failed Submission

Potential errors:

Deployment {trackId}  has no audience list assigned.
Deployment {trackId}  has no audience list assigned. An audience list with file name '{audienceList}' was removed from this deployment on {date} by {userId}.
Audience list {audienceList} is not assigned to this deployment. Currently assigned audience list is '{audienceList}' - assigned on {date} by {userId}.

A failed submission may be due to several factors:

400 Bad RequestTypically, this error occurs when the request does not follow the specifications.
403 ForbiddenTypically, this error occurs when the credentials are erroneous. Potentially, an incorrect x-omeda-appid.
404 Not FoundTypically, this error occurs with a malformed URL or the resource that is searched for is not found. This can occur if a TrackId submitted is not found in our system or if the list you are trying to remove is not found assigned to the deployment.
405 Method Not AllowedTypically, this error occurs when the resource accessed is not allowed by the HTTP Method utilized. Make sure you employ the appropriate HTTP Method (POST) for this request.

This is not an exhaustive list of errors, but common ones. If an error occurs repeatedly, please contact your Omeda representative.
