I am just retrieve the tracking history of a message to a mobile number and I'm constructing a GET method by url, http://www.exacttargetapis.com/sms/messageContact/MTM6NjI1OjA/history/LWt3YUtiLVA4RTJnSG1ISHlNMmhrZzo3OTow/mobileNumber/13175551212 and I'v added accessToken as OAuth2Bearer token in GET request's header.

accessToken : wq68aqwk772su44zyqhkapk8.

I'm getting the following response :

  "documentation" : "https://code.docs.exacttarget.com/rest/errors/403",
  "errorcode" : 0,
  "message" : "Service Requires SSL"

How to resolve this error?


You are using http in your request. You should be https instead. Look at the official API documentation here.

I changed your URL to https and the error goes away (it gives not authorised because the accessToken has probably expired)

  • Hi Gaurav, the hyperlink you mentioned is working but I'm tring to using API document given in url, code.exacttarget.com/apis-sdks/rest-api/v1/sms/…. The example request mentioned here is using http and I'm getting error message, "Service Requires SSL" as mentioned earlier. I tried to use https instead as you suggested and I got the following response , { "documentation" : "code.docs.exacttarget.com/rest/errors/404", "errorcode" : 404, "message" : "Not Found" }
