 Project Readme

Install¶ ↑

Add the following to your Gemfile

gem "ruby-pardot"

Usage¶ ↑

Authentication¶ ↑

In order to use this client, an access token retrieved from Salesforce OAuth must be specified. See the [authetication documentation on developer.pardot.com](developer.pardot.com/kb/authentication/) for more information.

require "ruby-pardot"

version = 3 # or 4
access_token = '<access_token>' # Retrieve an access token from Salesforce using OAuth
business_unit_id = '<business_unit_id>' # Specify the Business Unit ID of the account to access
client = Pardot::Client.new nil, nil, nil, version, access_token, business_unit_id

Usage of the username, password, and API key authentication is deprecated and will be removed in an upcoming release.

Object Types¶ ↑

The available objects are:

  • custom_fields

  • emails

  • lists

  • opportunities

  • prospects

  • users

  • visitor_activities

  • visitors

  • visits

Querying Objects¶ ↑

developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/querying-prospects

Most objects accept limit, offset, sort_by, and sord_order parameters

prospects = client.prospects.query(:assigned => false, :sort_by => "last_activity_at", :limit => 20)

prospects["total_results"] # number of prospects found

prospects["prospect"].each do |prospect|
  puts prospect["first_name"]
end

Creating, editing, and reading objects¶ ↑

See each individual object's API reference page for available methods

developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/using-prospects

prospect = client.prospects.create("user@test.com", :first_name => "John", :last_name => "Doe")

prospect.each do |key, value|
  puts "#{key} is #{value}"
end

Emails¶ ↑

See each individual call's [API reference page](developer.pardot.com/kb/api-version-3/introduction-table-of-contents).

# Sample usage
@pardot.emails.read_by_id(email_id)
@pardot.emails.send_to_list(:email_template_id => template_id, 'list_ids[]' => list_id, :campaign_id => campaign_id)
@pardot.emails.send_to_prospect(prospect_id, :campaign_id => campaign_id, :email_template_id => template_id)

Output formats¶ ↑

client.format = "simple" # default
client.format = "mobile"
client.format = "full"

Error handling¶ ↑

Pardot will respond with an error message when you provide invalid parameters

begin
  prospect = client.prospects.create("user@test.com")
rescue Pardot::ResponseError => e
  # the request went through, but Pardot responded with an error, possibly because this email is already in use
end

Performing API calls across the internet is inherently unsafe, so be sure to catch the exceptions

begin
  visitor = client.visitors.query(:id_greater_than => 200)
rescue Pardot::NetError => e
  # the API request failed
  #   - socket broke before the request was completed
  #   - pi.pardot.com is under heavy load
  #   - many number of other reasons
end
