Hello,

I am working on a requirement where i need to add an additional field 'field1' (not part of recipient or campaign). I need to  use field1 field in target mapping and store this in broadlog (created an custom field to store).

I need to create this field and set its value dynamically because different campaigns/workflow can have different values.

 

I can't do this query activity because the end-user won't be able to do this everytime they select a new query activity and enrich it.

 

What we can do is to set a delivery in initialization script tab of delivery template and then use it in delivery whenever user is configuring delivery using a delivery template.

 

I tried adding below code:

 

sqlExec("Alter table "+ vars.tableName + " ADD COLUMN icampaignFlag INT");

sqlExec("Update " + vars.tableName + " set icampaignFlag =" + 1);

 

But this field is not showing in target data. May be because there is no adobe name for this field.

How can we see this field in targetdata?

 

Can someone help?

Hi,

 

Target schema can be altered with js but it's not for the faint of heart. Easier to prepopulate workflow template with query that has mapped field.

If the data doesn't vary by recipient, does it need to be in broadLog?

 

Thanks,
