Hello All,

I have no idea how to use these two. Basically i want to duplicate a record from javascript. Do you have any idea how to use these or how to do it other than manually pass the settings from one to another?

Hi @MarcelSzimonisz ,

Here is how you do it in javascript:

I have taken an example of duplicating a delivery template.

 

var del1 = nms.delivery.create();
del1.Duplicate("nms:delivery|<<id of the delivery which you want to duplicate (integer)>>");
del1.save();

 

var del2 = nms.delivery.create();
del2.DuplicateTo("nms:delivery|<<id of the delivery which you want to duplicate (integer)>>","xtk:folder|<<id of the folder to which you want to duplicate your delivery to (integer)>>");
del2.save();

 

After the Duplicate() or DuplicateTo() methods are executed, the newly created delivery (copy of the original one) is available but not saved to the database yet.

Before the .save() you can modify as many properties of the delivery you want to via code as well.

The same way you can use it for other types of entities in Adobe Campaign, provided the schema and id (primary key) are correct.

 

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Ishan

Hi Marcel,

 

Duplicate --> let you duplicate an object in the same folder

Duplicate to --> let you duplicate an object to another folder that you will select during the process

 

Thanks
