    GET - View campaign

    The get endpoint allows you to get details about a campaign using its unique token.

    Request structure


    The campaigns API exposes a GET endpoint at: https://api.batch.com/1.1/BATCH_API_KEY/campaigns/CAMPAIGN_TOKEN

    Here are examples of valid cURL, PHP or Python requests syntax:

    curl -X GET "https://api.batch.com/1.1/BATCH_API_KEY/campaigns/CAMPAIGN_TOKEN" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "X-Authorization: BATCH_REST_API_KEY"
    use GuzzleHttp\Client;
    $client = new Client();
    $response = $client->request("GET", "https://api.batch.com/1.1/BATCH_API_KEY/campaigns/CAMPAIGN_TOKEN", [
        "headers" => [
            "Content-Type" => "application/json",
            "X-Authorization" => "BATCH_REST_API_KEY"
    import requests, json
    response = requests.request("GET", "https://api.batch.com/1.1/BATCH_API_KEY/campaigns/CAMPAIGN_TOKEN", 
            'Content-Type': 'application/json'
            'X-Authorization': 'BATCH_REST_API_KEY'

    Note: Only LIVE API Keys are supported by this API


    In order to authenticate with the API, you need to provide your company REST API Key as the value of the X-Authorization header.



    If the GET to the API endpoint is successfull you will receive an HTTP 200 confirmation and details about your campaign.

    The output format is the same than the one used to create a campaign, except that the four following fields are added :

    Id Description
    campaign_token String -
    The token number of the campaign.
    from_api Boolean -
    Value that indicates whether or not the campaign were created with the API. `false` value means the campaign were created with the dashboard.
    dev_only Boolean -
    Value that indicates whether or not the campaign only targets developers.
    created_date String -
    Creation date of the campaign.

    Here is an example of output :

        "campaign_token": "a0082dc6860938a26280bd3ba927303b",
        "from_api" : false,
        "dev_only": true,
        "created_date": "2017-07-05T15:11:33",
        "name": "Test campaign",
        "live": true,
        "push_time": "2017-07-05T13:32:30",
        "gcm_collapse_key": "default",
        "targeting": {
            "segments": [
        "messages": [
                "language": "en",
                "title": "Hello!",
                "body": "How's it going?"
