Authorizing ActiveCampaign API in Astera Centerprise

The ActiveCampaign API is structured around REST, HTTP, and JSON. You can make requests by using URL endpoints particular to a specific resource. The resources in ActiveCampaign are represented in JSON following a conventional schema. In Astera Centerprise, you can configure an ActiveCampaign API using the Import API option present in the REST API Browser.

ActiveCampaign doesn’t provide an Open API definition so we will add a request manually by using a Custom API in Centerprise.
