We recently released public REST APIs and .NET SDK to interact with Mobile Engagement programmatically so that existing backend like IT/CRM/CMS systems could be easily integrated with Mobile Engagement. These APIs could be used to:
- Create & activate push campaigns and fetch the push statistics.
- Retrieve and enhance the information stored in Mobile Engagement about the devices.
Some helpful resources:
Our REST API Reference enumerates all the available REST APIs with a brief description about them as well as their request/response formats.
Swagger or the Open API specification is a standard way to describe the REST APIs. Azure Mobile Engagement REST APIs are described using this Swagger specification.
We have also published a .NET SDK to consume these APIs for service integration.
Samples - .NET SDK sample & REST API sample demonstrate some simple scenarios like programmatically create a push campaign or get the devices information for a Mobile Engagement App.
