Is it possible to call external SOAP/REST API in ExactTarget? I want to call external SOAP/REST API in landing page and need to use SSJS. I tried to search in ExactTarget wiki but didn't get any proper documents.

I'm wondering if there is an documents/solution for the external SOAP/REST API, and if not, perhaps some suggestions on another way to solve this. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

It's really no different than any other platform used for making API calls. How would you build your API call to fetch subscriber preferences in a LAMP or IIS environment?

If the API action needs to be on a SFMC Landing Page or Microsite, then you'll have to do it within the confines of SFMC's SSJS and AMPScript functions.

If you need to do an HTTP Get on a public endpoint, then you can use the SSJS Get() or the AMPScript httpGet() functions.
