Specifying Event Type in Event Targeting Criteria


#1

Hi

We are seeing some issues when trying to specify which event types we want to receive when retrieving the list of event targeting criteria.

One of the parameters the API allows to filter the results on are the event type, which is one of the following:

SPORTS, MUSIC_AND_ENTERTAINMENT, HOLIDAY, CONFERENCE, MOVIE_RELEASE, POLITICS, OTHER

These all get returned correctly when retrieving all the values. However, when asking for only one of these categories, the API throws an error when request either MOVIE_RELEASE, or POLITICS with the following error:

404:The URI requested is invalid or the resource requested, such as a user, does not exists. Also returned when the requested format is not supported by the requested method.\n{\"errors\":[{\"code\":\"NOT_FOUND\",\"message\":\"The event_type MOVIE_RELEASE was not found\",\"parameter\":\"event_types\"}],\"request\":{\"params\":{}}}

Hi,

Let me clarify - the other event types work as filters and the MOVIE_RELEASE and POLITICS are the only two you see a problem with? I just checked our code base and didn’t see any obvious different between the filter types from a quick glance, so it would help if you could send the exact request you are making (Twurl being preferred)

Thanks!
