Campaigns

Campaigns have the following structure:

{
id : int64
name : string
created_date : string(datetime)
launch_date : string(datetime)
send_by_date : string(datetime)
completed_date : string(datetime)
template : Template
page : Page
status : string
results : []Result
groups : []Group
timeline : []Event
smtp : SMTP
url : string
}

The template, page, groups, and smtp objects are all Gophish objects. Their format can be found at their various API endpoints.

Campaign Events

Gophish keeps track of every event for a campaign in it's timeline. Each event has the following format:

{
email : string
time : string(datetime)
message : string
details : string(JSON)
}

The details field is a string containing JSON which contains the raw data about an event (such as credentials that were submitted, user-agent information, and more). The details field has the following format:

{
payload : object
browser : object
}

Campaign Results

In addition to this, campaign results are maintained in the results attribute. This has a format similar to the members of a Group, in that they have the following structure:

{
id : int64
first_name : string
last_name : string
position : string
status : string
ip : string
latitude : float
longitude : float
send_date : string(datetime)
reported : boolean
}

"modified_date": "2018-09-04T01:24:21.691924069Z"
},
"url": "http://localhost"
}

This method expects the campaign to be provided in JSON format. For the various objects in a campaign, such as the template, landing page, or sending profile, you need to provide the name attribute. Here's an example of a JSON payload to create a new campaign:

{
"name":"CC Example Campaign",
"template":{"name":"Example Template"},
"url":"http://localhost",
"page":{"name":"Example Landing Page"},
"smtp":{"name":"Example Sending Profile"},
"launch_date":"2018-10-08T16:20:00+00:00",
"send_by_date":null,
"groups":[{"name":"Example Group"}]
}

Scheduling a Campaign

You can schedule a campaign to launch at a later time. To do this, simply put the desired time you want the campaign to launch in the launch_date attribute. Gophish expects the date to be provided in ISO8601 format.

Without setting a launch date, Gophish launches the campaign immediately.

Spreading out Emails

By default, Gophish sends all the emails in a campaign as quickly as possible. Instead, you may wish to spread emails out over a period of minutes, hours, days, or weeks. This is possible by setting the send_by_date to an ISO8601 formatted datetime. It's important to note that this must be after the launch_date.
