RealTimeAccountActivity via SQS v/3.2

This service provides a way to simply and easily consume account activity data in real-time as events (clicks, opens, bounces, etc.) occur. This can be extremely useful for applications using MessageGears that need to capture their activity data more frequently than once a day (i.e. for a job dashboard). The data is formatted using exactly the same XML structure as the AccountActivity API results. The only difference is that the data will come from a queue in many small XML payloads.

 
Deprecated Versions

v3.1

Implementation

Amazon provides their Simple Queue Service as a way to easily and securely transfer data using their API.
