Email deliveries: Output all available variables for debugging purpose

I find it pretty hard to know what are the variables (some examples: message.id, recipient.firstName, delivery.label, etc) available that can be used inside email deliveries. I was wondering if an exhaustive list existed, but can't find any in the online documentation.

Moreover, for debugging purpose, I think it could be really useful if we could use some javascript to send some test email deliveries which would output all the available variables (their key and value). It could look like how JSON or Javascript object are displayed in some dev tools, for instance :

Hi,

There is no official list in the documentation as it mainly depends on the context you're in and the schema you use, as well as on your rights.

You can also define your own variables in some cases.

Most variables come from the schema definition.

Run the following js code, choose the primary key of any delivery

var d = nms.delivery.load("841925965");

for (var i in d) {

  logInfo([i]);

}

also you can log which mailparameter variables are available

var d = nms.delivery.load("841925965");

for (var i in d.mailParameters) {

  logInfo([i]);

}

For instance, you can dynamically generate the delivery's subject line from within the workflow's delivery activity without modifying the template. ie.

delivery.mailParameters.subject = "Daily report for "+formatDate(new Date(), "%2D%2M%4Y");
