Is it possible to send emails created in Marketing Cloud Content Builder through the API? I don't mind whether it is SOAP or REST.

I'd like the data source to be a filter on a Data Extension.

  • is it marketing cloud? – Pranay Jaiswal May 19 '18 at 10:43
  • Yes its marketing cloud – Jon Mitchell May 19 '18 at 10:50
  • If the source is a filtered data extension you could just use journey builder or automation studio rather than an API to send the email. – Travis Naughton May 20 '18 at 22:58
  • Unfortunately the requirement is for it to be fully automated. – Jon Mitchell May 21 '18 at 8:30

When defining the ETEmail in the ETEmailSendDefinition you have to specify the 'CustomerKey' and not the ID.

It appears that if you want to send a 'Classic' email the ID works, however if you're trying to send a 'Content Builder' email you need to specify the 'CustomerKey'.
