Possible errors

The following table lists possible returned errors and their associated troubleshooting steps.

Error Troubleshooting
Content Block ID cannot be blank Make sure that a Content Block is listed in your request and is encapsulated in quotes ("").
Content Block ID is invalid for this App Group This Content Block doesn’t exist or is in a different company account or app group.
Content Block has been deleted—content not available This Content Block, though it may have existed earlier, has been deleted.
Include Inclusion Data—error This parameter only accepts boolean values (true or false). Make sure the value for include_inclusion_data is not encapsulated in quotes (""), which causes the value to be sent as a string instead. See request parameters for details.
