Hello,

We are using the Recipient table to store the customer attributes and also created a custom table to store several customer extension attributes. This is a 1:1 relationship.

I'm trying to insert records into the Recipient and the Custom table in a single workflow. Is this possible or do i need separate workflows for each Target dimension?

Any other suggestions on how to insert records into Recipients and the Custom table??

Thanks for your help

Hi,

Have the 'Update data' activity for nms:recipient output a transition, then connect it to a 2nd update activity for your custom table.

The outgoing transition will have the pk's of the upserted nms:recipient rows to use for your custom table's recipient-id fk.

If the relationship is the other way (recipient table has fk's to custom table), reverse the above order.

Thanks,

Thanks Jon.

I tried the approach and running into this error message. Do we need to perform any transformation before the 2nd Update activity?
