  • Timeout values are 120 seconds for non-tracking operations and 300 seconds for tracking and data retrieve operations.

SOAP APIs provide a means for applications on different operating systems, technologies, and languages to communicate using only XML. You can use the Marketing Cloud SOAP API for managing things such as tracking data, subscribers and lists, automation, content, and most other email activities.

Salesforce Marketing offers support for six platform SDKs: C#, Java, Node, PHP, Python, and Ruby. Salesforce Marketing Cloud SDKs, excluding the Mobile Push and Content Builder SDKs, are community-supported projects.



Marketing Cloud offers custom scripting languages to personalize landing pages, create applications, construct cross-channel templates or layouts, and work with messaging functions on the Marketing Cloud platform.

AMPscript- AMPscript is a scripting language that you can embed within HTML emails, text emails, landing pages, SMS messages, and push notifications from Mobile Push. It uses JavaScript code processed by Marketing Cloud servers. Instead of using the browser to render the JavaScript on the client-side computer, Marketing Cloud executes the JavaScript on the server when rendering. While you can duplicate the functionality of AMPscript using SSJS, SSJS doesn’t work with the Document Object Model (DOM) and doesn’t function with exterior libraries.

Features provided by the AMPscript.

  • AMPscript is the preferred language for personalizing message content. It simply and efficiently handles inline personalization.
  • AMPscript works better than SSJS for use cases where each subscriber needs to see unique content.
  • AMPscript has a shorter learning curve than SSJS for users new to scripting languages in general.
  • A great number of people already know JavaScript and can immediately apply that knowledge to Marketing Cloud.
Most users can handle the tasks they need to perform using AMPscript


A package is a container made up of components that create and manage custom functionality. In other words, the components determine what the package can do.

Security is an important part of that trust. Marketing Cloud gives you the power to go out of simple username and password. As part of your account configuration, you can set up extra security measures at login by using combination of complex key word.

  • Verify the browser with an email verification code via Identity Verification feature.
  • Adhere to strict password requirements for length and characters.
  • Provide a range of IP address from the Login IP White list.

Marketing Cloud security revolves around keys. Keys are values used to securely allow different functions in Marketing Cloud such as encrypting and decrypting data, managing single sign-on, or generating JSON Web Token values for custom Journey Builder activities.

SSL Certificates- handles web pages that allow subscribers to submit information, subscribe to communications, or view messages outside of their email client. To ensure the safest experience Salesforce recommends using SSL certificates to secure web-based communications.

The best practices are avoiding common security risks like cross-site scripting, sensitive data exposure, HTML injection, and others.
