Changing VEC Custom Code through API

Avatar

Level 1

Hello Everyone,


We use the Custom code section under VEC to execute JavaScript code for personalization. We are exploring a way to change this code through Adobe Target APIs.

For the Form-based-editor, we are able to do it using the following steps:
1. Use Get Activity Details API ([https://developers.adobetarget.com/api/#get-xt-activity-by-id] ). This returns the offer-id corresponding to the custom-code with the Form-based-editor.
2. Extract the offer-id from the step above and use Update Offer API to change the custom-code with the Form-based-editor.([https://developers.adobetarget.com/api/#update-offer-by-id] )


Unfortunately, VEC custom-code does not return any offer-id. Instead, it returns offerTemplateId (see below JSON Response) and we are not able to find how to update this offer using the offerTemplateid using any API.

Hi @Arun_kumaran 

 

In response I am able to see offer content, is that what you are trying to update using API?
