AA - Product String Builder Errors

Avatar

Level 1

Anyone gotten the Launch AA Product String Builder to work without their Data Layer management tool??  I just tested it on Adobe's AEM we.retail demo site and either it won't recognize a direct object reference (like typing digitalData.cart.products instead of using a data element) or if I use a data element throws a runtime error.

 

launch-54a7599c3ecf-development.min.js:3 Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: this.settings.productCollectionPath.replace is not a function
    at n.getProductCollectionPath (launch-54a7599c3ecf-development.min.js:3)
    at n.setProductBase (launch-54a7599c3ecf-development.min.js:3)
    at n.buildProductMapping (launch-54a7599c3ecf-development.min.js:3)
    at launch-54a7599c3ecf-development.min.js:3

 

Sometimes it will recognize the data layer; when it does - the error above is thrown.

Hi @ExpCloudMember 

 

For the error you're facing, could you please share the value you're passing to AA product string extension ?

 

I believe you're using Search discovery extension to set products variable.

Ideally, the way you pass values to "AA Product String Builder" in rule action as-

 

Root Data Object = Dataelement (which return root object, for example: dataLayerRoot)

Product Collection Path = cart.products

Product Strings Core Settings:
Category = product

Product ID = productsku

Try this:

1. Use %dataLayerRoot.cart% as the Root Data Object.

2. Use "products" as the Product Collection Path.

You will need a data element named "dataLayerRoot.cart" of JavaScript variable type to return your "dataLayerRoot.cart" object for step 1.

Tried a number of variations without success; either I still get the error in the original screenshot, it fails silently or the products string is malformed.  Simple Data Layer below:

 

digitalData.cart.products[0].product
digitalData.cart.products[0].price
digitalData.cart.products[0].quantity
digitalData.cart.products[1].product
digitalData.cart.products[1].price
digitalData.cart.products[1].quantity

The documentation from the extension says it's expecting "digitalData" in the root, "cart.products" in the Product Collection path and "product" in Path to Product ID box.

Except, that doesn't work for me.  Unless I'm doing it incorrectly, the extension tracks "_0" as the product id (you can see the actual id in the original screenshot).

@ExpCloudMember  Can you share the definition within digitalData data-element, that you're using in Root ?

If you are using the data element definition as:

and using the data element as below:

atusingh_1-1631038538609.png

It should work.
If it still doesn't work, I suspect, if the data layer is being overwritten by the time code runs ?

No, the DL is still present and not over-written by the time this Rule runs (set at page bottom).  I agree with you, it "should" work - but it doesn't. My screenshot looks exactly like yours.
