Release 8.1.14

What’s new?

New workflow activity: Change Data Source

The new Change Data Source workflow activity allows you to change the data source of a workflow's working table. This provides enhanced flexibility in managing data across different data sources (FDA, FFDA & local database).

In Adobe Campaign workflows, data is managed using working (or temporary) tables. As the workflow executes, working tables share data across workflow activities. By default, working tables are created on the same database as the source of the data we query on.

With Campaign v8, the main profiles table is stored on the cloud database directly. So querying on the Profiles table will create a working table on the cloud database as well. In certain cases, it can make sense to move the working table to another data source in order to perform specific operations.

For more information, refer to the detailed documentation.

LINE channel availability

The LINE channel is now available with Campaign v8, including the following enhancements when combined with the transactional messaging module:

  • Fixed an issue which could prevent visitors from being targeted in a LINE delivery.

  • Fixed an issue which could cause errors when retrieving visitors from the execution instance to the marketing instance.

  • Fixed issues during the processing of real-time events.

Other improvements

  • Fixed an issue which could prevent the Hot clicks report from displaying for specific deliveries.
  • Fixed an issue with the Deduplication workflow activity which could result in an inaccurate duplicate counting.
  • Fixed an issue when using a workflow query with the “ID is not empty” filter which could result in an empty item being displayed in the transition population.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented additional fields from being created in a new target mapping.
