Send data to the DCS API using GET or POST methods.

You can send data to the DCS using either one of the GET or POST methods. Take a look at the sample calls below, using curl. In all three sample calls, we are adding the signals c_likes = famous popstar and c_loves = famous actress to the device profile 12345678901234567890123456789012345678.

Send Data via GET

Note that the maximum allowed size for GET calls is 8K.

curl -i "yourcompany.demdex.net/event?d_uuid=12345678901234567890123456789012345678&d_rtbd=json&c_likes=famous%20popstar&c_loves=famous%20actress"

Send Data via POST

Note the requirements for sending data using the POST method:

  • The maximum allowed size is 32K.
  • Set the content type to application/x-www-form-urlencoded.

Sample call

curl -X POST \
  https://yourcompany.demdex.net/event \
  -H 'content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
  -d 'c_likes=famous%20popstar&c_loves=famous%20actress&d_uuid=12345678901234567890123456789012345678'
