Response

A successful response returns HTTP status 200 with details of your newly created destination server configuration.

List destination server configurations

You can retrieve a list of all destination server configurations for your IMS Organization by making a GET request to the /authoring/destination-servers endpoint.

API format

GET /authoring/destination-servers

Request

The following request will retrieve the list of destination server configurations that you have access to, based on IMS Organization and sandbox configuration.

curl -X GET https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/activation/authoring/destination-servers \
 -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
 -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {ORG_ID}' \
