There is a restful approach of doing it. Yes, we are talking about the REST APIs. So what is REST APIs, and how are they used in creating Campaign objects is a question which has multiple aspects and areas. The HCL Campaign REST API to manipulate campaigns, offers, offer lists, attributes, and target cell objects. What are REST APIs? You are trying to search and book your flights on the internet, and in a few seconds, you have the results. That is the function an API performs, helping two systems talk to each other.

Imagine an existing or prospective customer visited your website, added a few items to their basket, then left the website. Are there any follow-up actions that you can trigger with Interact, such as dropping an email after the session? The answer is YES!
