TargetSmart Developer API versus Automation
Unless TargetSmart has provided a custom workflow solution for you, you can ignore the Automation information.
TargetSmart’s Developer API provides an HTTP-based interface for consuming the general web services that TargetSmart provides. The TargetSmart Automation system solely provides a solution for consuming customized file processing workflows that are provisioned for specific client needs. TargetSmart Automation is based on SFTP instead of HTTP.
