XML Notifications are generated by eC-Messenger on various events. They consist of a well-defined XML and are sent to configured addresses. If you are not familiar with eC-messenger, you should read EcmessengerIn5Minutes first.
Most these xml elements extend a standard schema type userType which is illustrated here. For group-level notifications, a grouptype is usually used to tell about the recipient group (the list) which the user and the notification belongs to.
These system level notifications may be configured by ecircle personnel only. There are the following notifications:
This type of notification contains the information before and after the change:
There is a fallback mechanism in place, in case the configured target addres does not respond. In this case, the System-Administrator of the customer system is contacted, usually somebody from eCircle.This notification may be send from within a group or a system context. Only in group context, it will carry a group-id attribute and it will reveal the member attributes in the profile node. The context is usually determined by the configuration of the respective trigger
Very similiar to the Profile Change Notifications mentioned above, only that the XML element is named blacklist and the new-branch is not existing. This notification is issued if a user has been blacklisted.This notification is issued upon successful blacklisting only; due to the thourough cleanup from the system, that might be much later than when the blacklisting was started.
This notification is enabled/disabled together with the profile change setting.
These group-level notifications can be configured by a user of eC-messenger, that has the right permissions assigned. These notifications may be configured to send a minimal or maximal data set. Graphically, such a notification looks as follows:
A Import report can sent once a recipient import finished. There is a human readable confirmation email too, which is not discussed here. That this notification is issued, must to be specified in the Configuration of the Import-Task.
Here is a sample report.
This notification is sent after a group sendout (not a single message or a re-send group message) finished. It can be set up using group settings or the async API's control message.
When specifying the target address of a notification, all supported eC-messenger address types are available. In all cases, the XML described above is the payload of the message send to these addresses.You get a good impression about the XML Notification, if you let the system mail the notification to you, using a mailto:-Address first.
