We don’t have an API for getting views, so you’ll only be able to see that in the UI.
If you have the marketing tools, contact lists can work with most of the criteria that views use, and we do have a Contact Lists API.
This article will go over how to create both types of lists and why you may want to make a static list instead of a smart list, and vice versa.
Yes, I was all ready to use the Contact Lists API until I discovered that the Marketing UI (which includes Lists) is not included in the free package. I can create and update Lists via the API, but we can’t get at them in the Sales UI. Can you please confirm that this is correct? Thank you.
