Accessing the Act! Web API
An Act! in the Cloud subscription includes the use of the Act! Web API as part of the service - this is also available to customers on a 14-day trial.
No additional setup is required to use the API, you can simply access the API via the endpoint for your database site.
The API endpoint address depends on how you access your Act! in the Cloud database. If you access it by going directly to its own URL (which will look similar to this: https://usp1-iis-99.hosted1.act.com/YourSiteName/), then the API endpoint takes the format of your Cloud URL suffixed with "-api/act.web.api".
- Cloud Login URL: https://usp1-iis-99.hosted1.act.com/YourSiteName/
- API Endpoint: https://usp1-iis-99.hosted1.act.com/YourSiteName-api/act.web.api
However, if you access your Act in the Cloud database by using https://my.act.com then you will need to use the regional API URL associated to your account. These are as follows:
If you use an installed version of Act! to run a Remote Database that synchronizes with your Cloud Database, this remote will automatically be configured to use the Cloud API Endpoint to connect core API features such as Act! Marketing Automation, Act! Insight and more.
