Campaign deletion through the API


First, working with the API has so far has been rather hassle-free. Well done!

The only major snag I'm running up against is campaign management with the API itself. There is no way to update or delete a campaign. For now I'm going to have to go in weekly and remove the extra campaigns manually. If there were a way to update the campaign URL (will be necessary occasionally) with an update method or to simply delete the campaign and re-create it I'd be able to automate the whole process.

Are there any workarounds for this? Why aren't these methods included in the API?

So far, campaign deletion just hasn't been high priority compared to the other things we have to implement, improve and update, but thanks for the feedback.

Can you explain a little why you have these extra campaigns?

Um how about the client made a typo? As it is now there is no way to change that (via API) ... so they create a new one... And the old one is "orphaned" until some one goes in to CM directly and cleans up.
