APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the Management Center Marketing tool, when creating a
    Content, the Marketing Manager wants to set up a different
    custom click action URL depending on the customer's language.
    However, the Content tool allows only one click action URL
    

Local fix

  • Create a Content per language, and use web activity branching to
     control the display of the content.
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce users on v7.0 who use marketing content on
    multi-language stores with custom click action URLs.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    Setting up a custom Marketing Content click action URL can be
    difficult when there are different URLs for different languages.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    It is difficult to set up a content to have a different click
    action URL for all languages supported by the store.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The following tokens are now able to be used in the marketing
    content click action URL:
    
    1) #language#
    The token #language# will be replaced by the customer's current
    language (for example, en for English, fr for French). This
    corresponds to the LANGUAGE.LANGUAGE database column for the
    current language. It is typically the first two characters of
    the locale.
    
    2) #langId#
    The token #langId# will be replaced by the customer's current
    language ID (for example, -1 for English, -2 for French). This
    corresponds to the LANGUAGE.LANGUAGE_ID database column for the
    current language.
    
    Example 1: the custom click action URL is set as:
    #language#/aurora/return-policy
    
    A customer whose current language is English will have
    en/aurora/return-policy as the Content redirect URL.
    A customer whose current language is French will have
    fr/aurora/return-policy as the Content redirect URL.
    
    Example 2: the custom click action URL is set as:
    SearchDisplay?searchTerm=dress&storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&lan
    gId=#langId#
    
    A customer whose current language is English will have
    SearchDisplay?searchTerm=dress&storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&lan
    gId=-1 as the Content redirect URL.
    A customer whose current language is French will have
    SearchDisplay?searchTerm=dress&storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&lan
    gId=-2 as the Content redirect URL.
