 Want to build marketing automation into your app by integrating the Eloqua API? Check out our new cheat sheet geared towards developer tips and advice, to kick start the process!


Our team has put together API integration guides for popular integrations. These cheat sheets contain tips and tricks for developers who are looking to integrate with these unique APIs. We know that builiding integrations can be hard, especially when requests, objects, and error codes are not standardized. We're excited to launch our cheat sheet to help you get familiar with the first steps of integrating the Eloqua API.


Eloqua is a marketing automation platform and is part of the Oracle Marketing Cloud. The Eloqua API gives you access to all of the native Eloqua objects and even lets you create and manage custom objects, making it a truly versatile tool. Once you integrate, you'll be able to manage custom marketing campaigns across email, display search, web, video, and mobile, all from your connected app.

Base URL

The Cloud Element Base URL for all API calls is https://api.cloud-elements.com/elements/api-v2.

HTTP requests to the REST API are protected with HTTP Custom authentication with your Organization and User secret and an Element Instance token. We use many standard HTTP features, like HTTP verbs, understood by most HTTP clients. JSON is returned in all responses from the API, including errors. The APIs have predictable, straightforward URLs and use HTTP response codes to indicate API errors.
