Using Shape APIs

API Authorization Key

To use the API, you’ll require the API Authorization Key from your CRM account. The authentication token should be passed in the request header for every API request. Make sure that you have the permission to access the API service. If you do not have permission, contact your CRM Administrator.

Generate API Keys

To generate the API Authorization Key, navigate to the “Integrations” page in your Shape Software account and request an API Authorization Key from the “Shape Open API” integration.

API Request Format

Every API call requires the API Authorization Key passed in the request header.

How to Get Field Names

Field names can be found within your CRM System’s settings pages under: Settings > Marketing Sources > Edit Any Marketing Source > Campaign Source Post URL Instructions.


After navigating to the marketing sources settings page and opening up a campaign, scroll to the bottom of the page to the “Campaign Source Post URL Instructions” section. Here, you will find a searchable table with a breakdown of all of the field names available for use. These field names can also be exported to a CSV via the “Export” dropdown.
