Hi all,

 

We are using Javascript code for sms delivery. The URL used in the script is different for development and production. So I am planning to save the URL in option and this will be called in JS code using getOption(). When triggering sms delivery using the Javascript Iam getting below error

 

" getOption is not defined"

 

Same code I tried in Workflow using javascript activity, I can able see the option value in logInfo().

 

Could you please tell me what will be the issue.

 

Thanks,

Ram

Hi @ramprakasht3196

include these libraries on the script beginning and try again.

loadLibrary("xtk:shared/nl.js");
loadLibrary("xtk:shared/xtk.js");
loadLibrary("xtk:shared/json2.js");
loadLibrary("xtk:common.js");

Regards,

Milan

Hi @ramprakasht3196,

 

You cannot use option variables inside your SMS delivery as the MTA does not get the options from your marketing instance, and also does not support the GetOption() method.

You will need to read the option variable in a js activitiy prior to the SMS delivery, or in the initialisation script of your SMS delivery activity as something like this:

var.thisOption = getOption("readMyValue"); //readMyValue is an example option variable name

 

Then use it in your SMS delivery activity as you want it: <%= vars.thisOption %>

 

Thanks,
