HTTPPost2

Overview

This function posts content to the specified URL. This function only works with HTTP on port 80 and HTTPS on port 443. Non-standard port assignments cause this function to fail. The Marketing Cloud honors any character set returned in the HTTP headers via Content-Type. For example, you can use a UTF-8 encoded HTML file with Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 included in the header. If the header does not specify the encoding type, the application assumes all returned data uses the character set WindowsCodePage 1252. Change this default by contacting your Marketing Cloud account representative. Include as many name and value pairs as necessary.
