I'm trying to retrieve rows from a Synchronized DE using the SOAP API with the REST API Access Token:

I've seen this: Cannot retrieve fields from a Shared Data Extension using the SOAP API

And this: http://www.kellyjandrews.com/2014/02/20/using-fuel-oauth-with-the-soap-api.html

I am able to retrieve a Data Extension Object and Folders, but no rows from a DE.

Here's my request:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
      <fueloauth xmlns="http://exacttarget.com">{{Access Token}}</fueloauth>
      <RetrieveRequestMsg xmlns="http://exacttarget.com/wsdl/partnerAPI">

I get this error: Error: API Permission Failed.

I'm wondering if it could have something to do with the Package/API Integration that was set-up.


Weird. In the API Integration permission settings, I had to set Read and Write Permissions for Data Extensions in order to do a Retrieve on a Data Extension.

  • OMG WOW. Thank you for saving me a lot of time.
