Make the most of the new Doppler API
Using our services is each time easier and more accessible. Did you know that with our new API you can access almost all the functions that Doppler offers, integrating it with your own tools and applications?
In this post you will discover how to access it and all you can do with the new API!
Some previous observations
Before going further, you should know that using the Doppler API demands some development knowledge. So if you are not familiarized with it, you will probably need some help from a support group.
The format you will use for both INPUTS and OUTPUTS, is JSON. And the methods with which you must work are GET, PUT, POST and DELETE.
Our API is based on REST principles. This means you can use your browser to access the URLs and even use any HTTP client and programming language to interact with our Hypermedia API.
This is really good news! Don’t worry if you are not understanding some concepts. Your developers will do it for you and you will see that benefits will be fantastic!
Requirements to use the API
To take advantage of all the services our API can deliver, you will need to get your API Key, which must be included in each request. This means you need to have a paid Doppler account. If you have a free one and want to activate this option, we invite you to take a look at our Monthly, Prepaid and High Volume Plans.
Once you have hired one of our Plans, you can access your API Key and begin enjoying all the API benefits.

How to access
To use our API, you must first get into the Control Panel of your Doppler account.
Then select the Doppler API option in the Advanced Preferences section and start using it!
To operate our REST API, your application must perform an HTTP request and parse the response. All these will be self-documented, as they include various metadata that client applications can take or ignore.
The functions you can take advantage of are:
– Create, edit and delete Lists and get collections of those that already exist.
– Create, edit and delete Custom Fields.
– Build, edit, send, and delete Campaigns.
– Access the Summary Report of all your shipments.
– Import, edit and remove Subscribers.
– Get listings of removed contacts, Lists, Subscribers, Campaigns and Custom Fields.
Not bad, right?
