Vibes provide a platform to automate engagement and manage all mobile communication channels to deliver dynamic consumer experiences.
API INFO: The Base URL used for the vibes connector is https://public-api.vibescm.com. More information can be found on their main API documentation (v1.0) site.
Below is an example of a way in which you could potentially use the Vibes connector, to list all broadcasts and retrieve the information for each broadcast.
The steps will be as follows:
Setup using a manual trigger and List all the scheduled broadcasts.
Add a Loop connector to iterate through all the broadcasts from previous step.
Get details of each broadcast.
Your completed workflow should look similar to this:
1 - Setup Trigger & List broadcastsCopy
Select the Manual trigger from the trigger options available.
From the connectors panel on the left, add a Vibes connector to your workflow. Set the operation to 'List broadcasts'.
Feel free to re-name your steps as you go along to make things clearer for yourself and other users. The operation names themselves often suffice.
2 - Add a Loop connectorCopy
Next, search for the Loop collection connector within your connector panel, and drag it into your workflow as your next step. Set your operations to 'Loop list'.
The Loop Collection connector allows you to iterate through a list of results. In this example, we will use it to iterate through the data found within the previous Vibes connector step.
In order to specify the list you want to loop through, start by using the list mapping icon (found next to the list input field, within the properties panel) to generate the connector-snake.
While hovering over the 'List broadcasts' step (with the tail end of the connector-snake), select
results from the list of output properties displayed. This will auto-populate a jsonpath within your list input field, and update the type selector to jsonpath.
For more clarification on the pathways you have available, open the Debug panel to view your step's Input and Output.
JSONPATHS: For more information on what jsonpaths are and how to use jsonpaths with Tray.io, please see our Intro page and Data Guide for more details.
CONNECTOR-SNAKE: The simplest and easiest way to generate your jsonpaths is to use our feature called the Connector-snake. Please see the main page for more details.
When run, this workflow will iterate through the list of broadcats provided by the earlier step.
3 - Get broadcastCopy
The last step is to drag a Vibes connector inside of the Loop Collection step itself. Set the operation to 'Get broadcast'. As you can see, the 'Broadcast ID' field is required.
Use the connector-snake to find the jsonpath for the 'Broadcast ID' field from the loop step. It should appear simillar to this:
INTERPOLATION: When you wish to include JSON generated data within another input/output result, use our Interpolation method as described here.
When run, the workflow will now iterate through the list of broadcasts, and get information for each broadcast.
