Hello,

 

We have table which links to the recipients table with a 1 to many relationship (1 recipient may have many records in the 2nd table). We are trying to list data from all linked records in the 2nd table for each recipient. For example, in an email to John Doe we would like a bulleted list of ID1, ID2, ID3, etc. where ID1, ID2, ID3 are the linked records from the 2nd table.

We are wondering:

a) if personalization blocks are capable of handling queries & making API calls or if this is only possible within activities in the workflow via Javascript.

b) If there are any other ideas or solutions anybody has come across which can accomplish this scenario.

 

Here is the code we have tried writing into a personalization block. We see something similar being used from this site, which led us to attempting to use the personalization block approach: https://blog.floriancourgey.com/2018/08/use-querydef-the-database-toolkit-in-adobe-campaign 

var query = NLWS.xtkQueryDef.create(
{queryDef: {schema: "cus:Consumer_Ids", operation: "select",
select: {
node: [{expr: "@company"}, {expr: "@Id"}]
},
where: {
condition: [{expr: "@contactId= '" + recipient.contactId +"'"}]
}
}})

var res = query.ExecuteQuery()

 When attempting to loop through a personalization block, we are receiving this error.: "Error while compiling script. NLWS is not defined." Any insights or ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Austin,

See and example of code below. I used broadLogRcp as it has a 1-N relationship with recipient schema. So for every recipient I want to show all the emails sent

In your case, replace broadLog by the name of your 2nd table.

 

<TABLE>
    <TBODY>
        <TR>
            <TD>Campaign name</TD>
            <TD>Delivery Name</TD>
            <TD>Event Date</TD>
        </TR>
        <%
                for(var i = 0 ; i<recipient.broadLog.length; i++)
                {
                    document.write("<tr>");
                    document.write("<td>" + recipient.broadLog[i].delivery.operation.label + "</td>");
                    document.write("<td>" + recipient.broadLog[i].delivery.label + "</td>");
                    document.write("<td>" + recipient.broadLog[i].eventDate + "</td>");
                    document.write("</tr>");
                }
            %>
        </TR>
    </TBODY>
</TABLE>

 

 

Here is the result
