Sending emails through calling API in javascript

Avatar

Level 4

Hi Folks, 

 

My task is to send emails through API methods which are available in adobe campaign classic. 

 

I am pulling records from query activity and the next i am placing a javascript node and calling the method : 

 

logInfo(NLWS.nmsDelivery.SubmitDelivery("prdDM30931",""); where prdDM30931 is the delivery template name which i created manually. 

 

this is the method declaration given in documentation. 

Number deliveryId = SubmitDelivery ( String       scenarioName, XML          content )

so i assume something has to be given in 'XML content' section but there is no clear notes what to give there. 

 

my workflow looks like this :

i have given a sample xml like the below : 

 

NLWS.nmsDelivery.SubmitDelivery("prdDM30931",<delivery>

<targets>

<deliveryTarget>

<targetPart type='query' exclusion='false' ignoreDeleteStatus='false'>

<where>

<condition expr={'@id ='+ ctx.recipient.@id}/>

</where>

</targetPart>

</deliveryTarget>

</targets>

</delivery>)

 

and it throws error saying ctx is not defined.

Hi,

 

There isn't a ctx parameter in the SubmitDelivery method.

If you're trying to recreate Message Center, use SubmitNotification, which has a target param:

 

<delivery>
  <targets>
    <deliveryTarget>
      <targetPart>
        <where>
          <condition expr="@id=123"/>
        </where>
      </targetPart>
    </deliveryTarget>
  </targets>
</delivery>

 

Thanks,

-Jon

I just want to send real emails not the notifications through the API function from javascript. 

 

the target will be coming from the query activity and in the api call i need to pass the respondents which i got from query activity. Is there a documentation on how to do that. 

 

i found documentation functions like https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/campaign-classic/technicalresources/api/sm-operation-StartDel... 

 

but i want to send delivery by passing respondent emails from query activity through api functions.

Your example :

 

<delivery>
<targets>
<deliveryTarget>
<targetPart>
<where>
<conditionexpr="@id=123"/>
</where>
</targetPart>
</deliveryTarget>
</targets>
</delivery>

 

by the way what is @ID here ( is it the primary key of recipient table? )

 

so can I write like below : 

 

pulling the primary keys from vars.tablename (which is a table generated from query activity) 

var arrayValues=[primary keys OR Email ids];

 

for ( var i=0;i<arrayValues;i++)

{

NLWS.nmsDelivery.SubmitNotification("prdDM30931",<delivery>
<targets>
<deliveryTarget>
<targetPart>
<where>
<condition expr="@id="+arrayValues[i]/>
</where>
</targetPart>
</deliveryTarget>
</targets>
</delivery>)

}

Will this work?
