REST vs XML-RPC


(Andy Lipscomb) #1

I’m part of a team evaluating Infusionsoft for integration with another application. I see that the XML-RPC API is referred to as “Legacy” in the documentation. However, it appears that this API contains functionality that is not currently available in the REST API.

For example, I know that I am going to need to retrieve a detailed email activity log by contact. I found this explanation of how to do that: API - How to get email activity details?

It appears that this operation requires the Search API that is only available in XML-RPC. Is that correct? If not, how can I accomplish the same thing using the REST API?

Not everything is available in REST. So you will still have to use the XML-RPC to run the Saved Searches.

You can see what is available in REST via here: https://developer.infusionsoft.com/docs/rest/
