Testing a transactional message testing-a-transactional-message

Before publishing your transactional message, you can create a specific test profile that will allow you to properly check the message.

Defining a specific test profile defining-specific-test-profile

Define a test profile that will be linked to your event, which will allow you to preview your message and send a relevant proof.

  1. From the transactional message dashboard, click the Create test profile button.

  2. Specify the information to send in JSON format in the Event data used for personalization section. This is the content that will be used when previewing the message and when the test profile receives the proof.

    note note
    If you enriched your message, you can also enter information relating to another table, such as Profile. See Enriching the event and Personalizing a transactional message.
  3. Once created, the test profile will be pre-specified in the transactional message. Click the Test profiles block of the message to check the target of your proof.

You can also create a new test profile or use one that already exists in the Test profiles menu. To do this:

  1. Click the Adobe logo, in the top-left corner, then select Profiles & audiences > Test profiles.

  2. In the Event section, select the event that you have just created. In this example, select “Cart abandonment (EVTcartAbandonment)”.

  3. Specify the information to send in JSON format in the Event data text box.

  4. Save your changes.

  5. Access the message that you created and select the updated test profile.
