The ContentArea object represents a defined section of reusable content. An email can contain one or more content areas. A content area is always acted upon in the context of an Email object.

Marketing Cloud Engagement has a new model for storing, finding, managing, creating, sharing, and distributing all content-related objects. Access the objects created with the new Content Builder tools using the REST API. Your existing SOAP API integrations only function with the Classic tools.
