A list created with the API does not show up in the UI


#1

When i create a new List (POST https://:account.api-us1.com/api/3/lists), I get a 201 status code and the list shows up when i retrieve it with a GET.

However it does not show up in the UI when looking at (https://smitma.activehosted.com/admin/main.php?action=list). It does show up in the dropdown list when looking at the contacts (https://xxx.activehosted.com/app/contacts/).

I compared the Json results i got when listing all lists, with a list i created manually and apart from the name and stringid, all properties are identical.

Seems like something else is happening when you add a list manually using the UI, but so far i can’t figure out what.

:frowning: Sounds like something is off here. If you haven’t already, please email our support team (support@activecampaign.com) so they can take a look. Thanks!

This is still a problem. Is there something one must do after creating a list in the API to have it show under “Lists”. (As the OP reports, the lists do show on various pulldowns.)

Seemingly API-3 does not set group permissions for that list.
providing user-id with the post reqeust is not enough.
In the ui, go to settings -> users -> tab groups; there you can assign the newly created lists to a group.
You cannot assign a list to a single user.

=> How can i achive the same in api-3?

Thank you!
