Apifying Responsys for Sending Communications (email, SMS, push) to your Customers


Intro

The idea is apify Responsys REST services and create a couple of high level rest endpoints that can be consumed from anywhere after exposing them in a container. In our use case we are utilising Application Container Cloud Service and Node.js for coding and exposing the rest endpoints respectively.

NOTE: Create an ACCS container with at least Basic Authentication. See this entry blog for more info.

Ingredients

  • A Responsys instance in with you create email and other type of templates, a couple of campaigns and things like that.
  • An ACCS container

The source code

In bold you should put your environment data.

// jmu, july 2018

var express = require('express');

var app = express();

var querystring = require('querystring');

const user = "yourresponsysuser"

const password = "yourpassword"

"user_name": user,

"password": password}

// destinatario=xxx, campania=yyyy

console.log(destinatario)

var restpath ='/rest/api/v1.3/campaigns/'+ campania +'/push'

console.log(restpath);

var email_campaign = {

host: responsys_endpoint,

port: 443,

path: restpath,

method: 'POST',

var data1=''

var y = https.request(email_campaign,function(res){

res.on('end',function(){

console.log(data1)

});

});

y.write(JSON.stringify(elcuerpo));

y.end();

});

});

x.write(querystring.stringify(credentials));

x.end();

res.send('');

});

app.listen(8080, function () {

console.log('Escuchando!');

});
