Iterable-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for Iterable:

  • In the Data Integration product, Iterable connections are supported only for packages, which use a new data integration runtime.

    Make sure that the Use new runtime checkbox is selected on the tab bar if you want to use Iterable in your package.

  • Skyvia supports DML operations for such Iterable objects:
    • INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE: CatalogItems.
    • INSERT, UPDATE: Templates.
    • INSERT, DELETE: Lists, Catalogs.
    • INSERT: Campaigns, Events, InAppMessages.
  • Skyvia supports Replication with Incremental Updates for such Iterable objects: Campaigns, CatalogItems, Events (with a mandatory filter by Email), InAppMessages (with a mandatory filter by Email), Lists, MessagesTypes, Templates.

  • Skyvia supports Synchronization for such Iterable objects: CatalogItems, Templates.

  • When importing data to the Events object, in addition to the required EventName column, you also need to specify one of these columns: Email or UserId.

  • Retrieving data from the Events, InAppMessages, and Users objects is only possible when filtering by Email.

  • Campaigns object. Such fields as SendAt, SendMode, StartTimeZone, DefaultTimeZone and DataFields are used only for import operations. When retrieving data, they always remain empty.

  • The following stored procedures can be used for Campaigns object:

    • AbortCampaign: call AbortCampaign(:campaignId)

    • TriggerCampaign: call TriggerCampaign (:campaignId, :listIds, :suppressionListIds, :dataFields, :allowRepeatMarketingSends) (where _campaignId_ is a mandatory parameter, all others – optional)

    • CancelScheduledOrRecurringCampaign: call CancelScheduledOrRecurringCampaign (:campaignId)
