Example of using the Episerver Profile store API
using Newtonsoft.Json.Linq;
using RestSharp;
namespace InsightClient
class Program
private static string deviceId = "<deviceid>"; // retrive from _madid cookie value

static void Main(string[] args)
var insightProfile = GetProfile();
var updateResult = UpdateProfile(insightProfile, "07966 123456", "Episerver", "");
private static JToken GetProfile()
// Set up the request
var client = new RestClient(apiRootUrl);
var request = new RestRequest(resourceGetProfile, Method.GET);

// Set up the update profile request
var client = new RestClient(apiRootUrl);
var profileUpdateRequest = new RestRequest(resourceUpdateProfile, Method.PUT);
