What is an endpoint?

Are you asking yourself, "What is an endpoint?"?

An endpoint is configured when working with the SDA (Push API) and is the destination point where we send or 'Push' your data, for example:

There are a few items that need to be configured when setting an endpoint. Firstly you'll need to give it a name for your own records, as well as an endpoint URL which is a web address where we will send your data. Lastly, you'll determine the desired Transfer Protocol as well as the Encoding type. We'll provide you with a secret key for this specific endpoint, and you'll also configure what specific resource types you would like to be updated about when they're updated.

What are the Push API resource types?

A Push API Resource Type is a piece of information about a contact which can be monitored to send updates when changes occur. Typical Resource Types, for example, would be when a contact is created, updated, or deleted, but could also include things like list creation, modification, or deletion. For a full list of usable Push API Resource types see below.
