Destination testing API operations

IMPORTANT

API endpoint: https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/activation/authoring/testing/destinationInstance/

This page lists and describes all the API operations that you can perform using the /authoring/testing/destinationInstance/ API endpoint, to test if your destination is configured correctly and to verify the integrity of data flows to your configured destination. For a description of the functionality supported by this endpoint, read Test your destination configuration.

You make requests to the testing endpoint with or without adding profiles to the call. If you don’t send any profiles on the request, Adobe will generate those internally for you and add them to the request.

You can use the Sample profile generation API to create profiles to use in requests to the destination testing API.

How to get the destination instance ID

IMPORTANT

Getting started with destination testing API operations

Before continuing, please review the getting started guide for important information that you need to know in order to successfully make calls to the API, including how to obtain the required destination authoring permission and required headers.

Test your destination configuration without adding profiles to the call

You can test your destination configuration by making a POST request to the authoring/testing/destinationInstance/{DESTINATION_INSTANCE_ID} endpoint and providing the destination instance ID of the destination that you are testing.

API format

POST authoring/testing/destinationInstance/{DESTINATION_INSTANCE_ID}
Query Parameter Description
{DESTINATION_INSTANCE_ID} The destination instance ID of the destination that you are testing.

Request

The following request calls your destination’s REST API endpoint. The request is configured by the {DESTINATION_INSTANCE_ID} query parameter.


curl --location --request GET 'https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/activation/authoring/testing/destinationInstance/49966037-32cd-4457-a105-2cbf9c01826a' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'x-api-key: {API_KEY}' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
--header 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}' \
--header 'x-sandbox-name: {SANDBOX_NAME}' \

Response

A successful response returns HTTP status 200 along with the API response from your destination’s REST API endpoint.
