Advocacy Campaigns Version 2

This document describes the OSDI advocacy campaigns collection and advocacy campaign resource as implemented by the Action Network.

Advocacy campaigns are a type of action created by the organizer or group associated with your API key that involves activists writing letters to their elected officials or other targets. They correspond to the letter campaign tool on our UI.

Advocacy campaigns have names (corresponding to our administrative titles), titles, and can have descriptions and other fields, and when activists submit them outreach resources are created representing the letter an activist sent to an official.

Advocacy campaigns are not deduplicated except on identifiers, to keep identifiers unique. Identifiers are deduplicated globally, across groups and API keys, so ensure any you set are globally unique.

Note: Advocacy campaigns created via the API are not equivalent to advocacy campaigns created with our user interface. API-created advocacy campaigns will not show up in lists of all of your actions on your dashboard of group page, they will not be given a URL on actionnetwork.org where people can take action, they will not have individual manage pages for statistics and submission downloads, they will not send autoresponses, and outreaches POSTed to them will not deliver messages to targets. Rather, once they have at least one outreach, they will show up as actions available for selection in our targeting interface, allowing you to select all people who have taken action on that advocacy campaign for reports or email targeting.

Endpoints and URL structures

Endpoints:

https://actionnetwork.org/api/v2/advocacy_campaigns

Advocacy campaign resources live exclusively at the above endpoint. The endpoint returns a collection of all the advocacy campaigns associated with your API key.

URL Structures:

https://actionnetwork.org/api/v2/advocacy_campaigns/[id]

To address a specific form, use the identifier without the action_network: prefix to construct a URL, like https://actionnetwork.org/api/v2/advocacy_campaigns/d91b4b2e-ae0e-4cd3-9ed7-d0ec501b0bc3

Scenario: Creating a new advocacy campaign (POST)

You can post a new advocacy campaign to the advocacy campaigns endpoint and an advocacy campaign resource will be created in our system.

Note: Advocacy campaigns created via the API in this way are not equivalent to advocacy campaigns created with our user interface. API-created advocacy campaigns will not show up in lists of all of your actions on your dashboard of group page, they will not be given a URL on actionnetwork.org where people can take action, they will not have individual manage pages for statistics and submission downloads, they will not send autoresponses, and outreaches POSTed to them will not deliver messages to targets. Rather, once they have at least one outreach, they will show up as actions available for selection in our targeting interface, allowing you to select all people who have taken action on that advocacy campaign for reports or email targeting.

In the targeting interface, they will show up in the format [1, (origin system) Letter Campaign], (title). For example, an advocacy campaign with the origin system "FreeAdvocacy.com" and the title "My Free Advocacy Campaign" will show up in the targeting interface as [1, FreeAdvocacy.com Letter Campaign], My Free Advocacy Campaign so you can easily identify what it is and where it came from when doing your targeting.

In the above example, you can see how the foreign identifier being posted is merged into the identifiers array. We will intelligently search and deduplicate based on foreign and native identifiers. So if you post an advocacy campaign with an identifier that matches one already assigned to an advocacy campaign resource, your POST request will update that resource with new information instead of creating a duplicate. Identifiers are deduplicated globally, across groups and API keys, so ensure any you set are globally unique.

You can post an advocacy campaign with a creator link as well, if you want to assign the advocacy campaign to a specific Action Network user, like so:

						
POST https://actionnetwork.org/api/v2/advocacy_campaigns

Header:
Content-Type: application/json
OSDI-API-Token: your_api_key_here
						

{	
  "identifiers": [
    "free_advocacy:1"
  ],
  "title": "My Free Advocacy Campaign",
  "origin_system": "FreeAdvocacy.com",
  "_links" : {
    "osdi:creator" : { 
      "href" : "https://actionnetwork.org/api/v2/people/c945d6fe-929e-11e3-a2e9-12313d316c29" 
    }
  }
}
					

The link must be a valid person resource and must be associated with your API key for it to be accepted. If your API key is for an individual account, then the link must be to your account's person resource. If your API key is for a group, then the link must be to a member of administrator of your group. If no link or an invalid link is provided, the advocacy campaign will be assigned to your API key's account person record or to the original creator of the group, whichever is appropriate. Who the creator is has no effect on what email list people who take action on the advocacy campaign are subscribed to.

And of course you can post an advocacy campaign with more fields (such as description) if you'd like, but they are not required.

The above example added a new identifier to the advocacy campaign, changed the title, and added a description. Identifiers are deduplicated globally, across groups and API keys, so ensure any you set are globally unique.

Editing of certain fields via PUT is not allowed, and is noted in the field names table above. For example, you can't change the total_outreaches count -- that is a system generated number reflecting a count of the underlying outreaches. And you can't change the creator of an advocacy campaign. Invalid entries will be ignored.

Scenario: Deleting an advocacy campaign (DELETE)

Deleting advocacy campaigns is not allowed via the API. DELETE requests will return an error.
