Retrieve the Email Folder Hierarchy

Marketing Cloud 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 in Marketing Cloud.

This page contains information about retrieving the email folder hierarchy.

Why Retrieve the Email Folder Hierarchy

  1. ID - The ID of the folder
  2. ParentID - The ID of the folder this folder is nested within (0 if this is a parent folder)
