GET - View campaign

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

Request structure


The campaigns API exposes a GET endpoint at:

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

  • Bash
  • PHP
  • Python
curl -X GET "" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "X-Authorization: BATCH_REST_API_KEY"

The BATCH_API_KEY value is your Live Batch API key from the settings page of your app within the dashboard (Settings → General). Only LIVE API Keys are supported by this API.

The CAMPAIGN_TOKEN value is the token you receive when you successfully create a push campaign using the API.

Please note Batch manages each platform separately. You will have to call the API twice with a different API key if you want to target iOS and Android.


In order to authenticate with the API, you need to provide your company REST API Key as the value of the X-Authorization header. You can find it in ⚙ Settings → General.



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 :

campaign_tokenString -
The token number of the campaign or automation.
from_apiBoolean -
Value that indicates whether or not the campaign were created with the API. `false` value means the campaign were created with the dashboard.
dev_onlyBoolean -
Value that indicates whether or not the campaign only targets developers.
created_dateString -
Creation date of the campaign.
triggerObject - Optional
On trigger automations, will be an empty object. Use this to identify automations. Getting the detailed trigger information is not supported.

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",

  "push_time": "2017-07-05T13:32:30",

  "messages": [
