Get Contact by ID

The Sendblue API allows you to retrieve contact information by their unique contact ID. This endpoint can be used to fetch detailed information about a specific contact.

Get Contact by ID

To retrieve a contact, make a GET request to the following endpoint:


Replace :contactId in the endpoint URL with the unique contact ID you want to retrieve.

Sample Request

curl --location --request GET '' \
--header 'sb-api-key-id: YOUR_SB_API_KEY_ID' \
--header 'sb-api-secret-key: YOUR_SB_API_SECRET_KEY'

And here's the same in Node.js with Axios

const axios = require("axios");
const url = "";

.get(url, {
headers: {
.then((response) => {
.catch((error) => {
