Variables in File Name

Hi,

I'm extracting a file and would like to include the campaign name in the filename.

<%= instance.label %> gives me the workflow name. This works perfectly.

In the script drop down I'm given the option to navigate to the Campaign level and select the following '<%= instance.operation.label %>', however on extract this supplies a blank and populates the filename with nothing.

I have the Campaign Name in the target data in the transition prior to the data extract. Can I use this? If so how?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Alistair,

Even I'm finding it strange that instance.operation.label is not fetching the correct details.I'll check more on this with product engineers.

However, I do have a workaround available for your problem.

  1. Inside the file export activity, on the advanced tab there is an Initialization Script section.
  2. I'll create a variable that will hold the campaign label.
  3. To fetch campaign label, fire a SQL query on database and get the result immediately.

Code to use in Initialization script will be 

var myQuery = "SELECT O1.sLabel "; myQuery = myQuery + "FROM XtkWorkflow W0 JOIN NmsOperation O1 "; myQuery = myQuery + "ON (O1.iOperationId = W0.iOperationId) "; myQuery = myQuery + "WHERE W0.iWorkflowId = " + instance.id; vars.fName = sqlGetString(myQuery) + ".csv";

 

Attached is the snapshot of my test setup for reference. 

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Vipul

Hi Vipul,

This issue still appears to be open as of 8931:  Could you provide the adobe Jira ticket number and any update on it?

Thanks very much !

Hi Vipul,

Just wondering if you had any luck with the product engineers regarding that fact that <%= instance.operation.label %> is returning a null or undefined value from within a campaign?

Thanks!

 

Hi Alistair,

This has been logged with Engineering but it might take some time to get an answer for it. Will keep this thread updated.

For some reason when creating using the instance.operation.label I am returning a null value which is confusing as the Campaign this workflow in running in has a populated label.

So I'm trying a new approach.

How do I replace the hardcoded text with a field held in my target data?

instance.vars.AKTEST = "Campaign Name"

I want to replace "Campaign Name" with the field @campaignLabel which I have appended in a previous enrichment.
