API Provider Setup
On this page
To authenticate a iContact element instance you must use information associated with the application that you registered with iContact. When you authenticate, use your iContact username and the API version, API-AppID, and API password from the application registered with iContact. You will use these when you authenticate as the API-Username, API-Version, AppId, and API-Password.
See the latest setup instructions in the iContact documentation.
