REST API: GET destination/message impressions (Marketing Suite)

Each emailing is tracked, which allows Copernica to provide you with emailing statistics. Impressions are one of these statistics. You can retrieve all impressions for a specific destination by sending an HTTP GET call to the following URL:{$destinationID}/impressions

Note: The terms 'destination' and 'message' can be used interchangeably in this article, including the code examples.


The parameters for this method can be set to retrieve the statistics from a certain period. The following optional parameters are available:

  • begintime: The timestamp after which the impressions must have occurred (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format).
  • endtime: The timestamp before which the impressions must have occurred (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format).

Returned fields

The method returns a JSON object with several impressions. For each impression the following information is available:

  • ID: The ID of the impression.
  • mailing: The ID of the mailing.
  • timestamp: The timestamp of the impression.
  • ip: The IP where the impression occurred from.
  • useragent: User agent string of the machine the impression occurred from.
  • device: The type of device the impression came from ('desktop','tablet','mobile','unknown').
  • destination: The ID of the destination that caused an impression.
  • profile: The ID of the profile that caused an impression.
  • subprofile: The ID of the subprofile that caused an impression.
