Info

For the most up-to-date information on the Sender Identities API, please visit the new Marketing Campaigns Single Sends API.

The Campaigns API allows you to create and manage marketing campaigns. You can create campaigns, manage campaign content, and schedule campaigns to be sent at a later time.


POST/v3/campaigns/{campaign_id}/schedules/now

Base url: https://api.sendgrid.com

This endpoint allows you to immediately send an existing campaign.

Normally a POST request would have a body, but since this endpoint is telling us to send a resource that is already created, a request body is not needed.


Authentication

Default: Bearer <<YOUR_API_KEY_HERE>>

on-behalf-ofstring

The on-behalf-of header allows you to make API calls from a parent account on behalf of the parent's Subusers or customer accounts. You will use the parent account's API key when using this header. When making a call on behalf of a customer account, the property value should be "account-id" followed by the customer account's ID (e.g., on-behalf-of: account-id <account-id>). When making a call on behalf of a Subuser, the property value should be the Subuser's username (e.g., on-behalf-of: <subuser-username>). See On Behalf Of for more information.
