adobe.target.getOffers() - at.js 2.x

This function lets you retrieve multiple offers by passing in multiple mboxes. Additionally, multiple offers can be retrieved for all views in active activities.

NOTE

This function was introduced with at.js 2.x. This function is not available for at.js version 1.x.

Key Type Required? Description
consumerId String No Default value is client’s global mbox if not provided. This key is used to generate the supplemental data ID (SDID) used for A4T integration.
When using getOffers(), each call generates a new SDID. If you have multiple mbox requests on the same page, and want to preserve the SDID (so that it matches the SDID from the target-global-mbox and the Adobe Analytics SDID), use the consumerId parameter.
If getOffers() includes three mboxes (named “mbox1”, “mbox2”, and “mbox3”), include: consumerId: "mbox1, mbox2, mbox3" in the getOffers() call.
decisioningMethod String No “server-side”, “on-device”, “hybrid”
request Object Yes See Requests table below.
timeout Number No Request timeout. If not specified the default at.js timeout is used.

Call getOffers() to retrieve the analytics payload from the client side

adobe.target.getOffers({
      request: {
        experienceCloud: {
          analytics: {
            logging: "client_side"
          }
        },
        prefetch: {
          mboxes: [{
            index: 0,
            name: "a1-serverside-xt"
          }]
        }
      }
    })
    .then(console.log)

Response:

{
  "prefetch": {
    "mboxes": [{
      "index": 0,
      "name": "a1-serverside-xt",
      "options": [{
        "content": "<img src=\"http://s7d2.scene7.com/is/image/TargetAdobeTargetMobile/L4242-xt-usa?tm=1490025518668&fit=constrain&hei=491&wid=980&fmt=png-alpha\"/>",
        "type": "html",

        "responseTokens": {
          "profile.memberlevel": "0",
          "geo.city": "bucharest",
          "activity.id": "167169",
          "experience.name": "USA Experience",
          "geo.country": "romania"
        }
      }],
      "analytics": {
        "payload": {
          "pe": "tnt",
          "tnta": "167169:0:0|0|100,167169:0:0|2|100,167169:0:0|1|100"
        }
      }
    }]
  }
}

The payload can then be forwarded to Adobe Analytics via the Data Insertion API.

Fetch and render data from multiple mboxes via getOffers() and applyOffers()

at.js 2.x lets you fetch multiple mboxes via the getOffers() API. You can also fetch data for multiple mboxes and then use applyOffers() to render the data in different locations identified by a CSS selector.

The following example shows a simple HTML page with at.js 2.x implemented:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>at.js 2.x, multiple selectors and multiple mboxes</title>
  <script src="at.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="container1">Default content 1</div>
  
  <div id="container2">Default content 2</div>

  <div id="container3">Default content 3</div>
</body>
</html>

Assume that you have three containers that you want to modify via content received from Target. You can construct a single request for three mboxes in which each mbox has some content to render into the respective container.

The request and rendering code might look like the following example:

adobe.target.getOffers({
  request: {
    prefetch: {
      mboxes: [
        {
          index: 0,
          name: "mbox1"
        },
        {
          index: 1,
          name: "mbox2"
        },
        {
          index: 2,
          name: "mbox3"
        }
      ]
    }
  }
})
.then(response => {
  // get all mboxes from response
  const mboxes = response.prefetch.mboxes;
  let count = 1;

  mboxes.forEach(el => {
    adobe.target.applyOffers({
      selector: "#container" + count,
      response: {
        prefetch: {
          mboxes: [el]
        }
      }
    });

    count += 1;
  });
});

In the request > prefetch > mboxes section, there are three different mboxes. If the request completed successfully, you receive the response for each mbox from response > prefetch > mboxes. After you have the responses and the locations you want to use for rendering, you can invoke applyOffers() to render the content retrieved from Target. In this example we have the following mapping:

  • mbox1 > CSS selector #container1
  • mbox2 > CSS selector #container2
  • mbox3 > CSS selector #container3

This example uses the count variable to construct the CSS selectors. In a real-life scenario you could use a different mapping between the CSS selector and mbox.

Note that this example uses prefetch > mboxes, but you could also use execute > mboxes. Ensure that if you use prefetch in getOffers(), you should also use prefetch in the applyOffers() invocation.

Call getOffers() to perform a pageLoad

The following example shows you how to perform a pageLoad using getOffers() with at.js 2.x

adobe.target.getOffers({
    request: {
        execute: {
            pageLoad: {
                parameters: {}
            }
        }
    }
});
