I'm trying to structure a Rule where:

Event = Direct Call to load Adobe Launch script along with accessing all the sProp variables (such as pageURL)

IF I  want another rule to fire only on certain pages, what would be the differnece between setting up either of these two conditions:

Variable %pageURL% matches Regex /required-page

VS

Value Comparison %pageURL% matches Regex /required-page

Thanks.

Hi Adilk,

The Variable condition type is designed to pull the JS variable and compare its value with the one you set in the Regex expression. You can't check a Data Element value with this type of condition.

The Value Comparison condition does support Data Element.

Thanks, Andrey.

So, if my Variable condition is digitalData.pageInfo.pageURL and my Value Comparison has data element %pageURL% in the condition, both should yield the same result? (Either TRUE or FALSE)
