Complete Data Elements

Avatar

Level 1

Is there a way to store Objects as Data Elements?  The reason I ask is we have a current data layer that we utilize and I would like to only define one data element call it model, then when populating extension values populate them as "%model%.attribute"  is there a way to do this?

You can store objects as data elements, but you can't access them with the

pattern because everything outside of the %% is interpreted as literal text.

And you can't use

because people actually use '.' in their data element names and we can't support both ways of doing it.  And our developers are sad about that.

If you're doing this inside of custom code, then you can do something like

to get access to those attributes.
