Work request API
Released: Cutting Edge, 09/07/2022
Using the work request API, organizations can automate and streamline their work request flow from multiple sources into Content Marketing Platform (CMP). Coupled with the work request Webhooks, organizations can fully sync all types of work requests from internal and external software into CMP, and act upon them using our APIs directly. This also lets you create tasks and campaigns directly from a Work Request via the API.
The work request API and its corresponding Webhooks let integrators build middleware that can synchronize all types of data into Optimizely Content Marketing Platform (CMP) for further action. You can take external form data to create Work Requests directly on CMP, which you then can synchronize back to the originating system. This closes the loop completely, and provides complete visibility of work requests and updates on them. For example, you can synchronize CMP with internal ticketing systems and forms that are used to ingest work from external stakeholders - thus turning CMP into a source of truth for managing work requests.
