Enhance Task Pagehook Button

Mark Parker 8 months ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 3 months ago 2

When a pagehook button is created in the Task Inbox, and set to "configure by task" for the display mode, you are then able to add this pagehook button to a review task, or a non review task. The problem is, when you click this pagehook button, we are able to send the task ID in the URL to the new page, but we are not able to send if it's a review task or a non review task. This is an issue because there are separate routes for review and non-review tasks. If you hit the wrong one, it will return a 404. So our only option right now, is to try one, and if we get a 404, then try the other. This is not ideal or efficient when trying to load a page. See the two different routes below. We need to be able to determine if the pagehook button is being clicked from a review task, or a non review task.




Integration with Sketch and/or Adobe XD

laura.patterson 1 year ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by anonymous 9 months ago 3

My digital creative team works with Sketch and Adobe XD on a daily basis which are great tools for building website banners, emails etc. and they would love to have a connector that integrates Sketch and XD with the DAM to be able to pull assets in.

Add close endpoint for autoclose task

Jake Vandevyvere 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 2 years ago 1

Would it be possible to add a close endpoint for an autoclose task? This would be very useful in the following situation:

In many cases, a task in a workflow may depend upon input from a user in the preceding task. For example, a user has a dropdown list on a task, and depending on the value he chooses for the extended attribute, another output port is chosen, and the following user receives a different task. In some cases however, we need to do an integration callout to make a few changes in the system before the next user receives his task. For example, we may need to change the system type of an attachment, or make classifications in the DAM. Since it is absolutely necessary that these changes have happened before the next user receives his task, we cannot do the callout "on close" of the preceding task or on an autoclose task with task duration 0, because then the next task will already be assigned to the following user before the callout has finished.

Our current solution is to do the callout on an autoclose task with a duration of one day, and add the very end of the callout, we change the end time of the task to "now". The advantage of doing this on an autoclose task is that these autoclose tasks can easily be filtered out of the agile board or task list overview for end users, who do not need to be bothered with the details of our technical implementation. However, when we update the end date to "now", it still takes up to a minute before the autoclose task is actually closed.

This process could be facilitated a lot if we would have a "close" endpoint on autoclose tasks, similar to the "close" endpoint on ordinary tasks. Calling this endpoint would cause the autoclose task to immediately change its state to "closed". Note that this is already possible if one goes manually into the system and changes the state.


Adobe Creative Cloud Connector - New Asset Creation and Required Fields

When creating a new Asset via Adobe CC Connector, if the Classification the asset is being saved into has any required fields, the User is confronted with an error message, and no way to enter in the required data. 

Considering how frequent required fields are for our Clients, this is quite inconvenient. It seems like the CC Connector should be uploading to the Uploads holding area, just like an upload via the usual DAM UI. Alternately, instead of the error message, the user could get a dialog box giving them an opportunity to fill in the required metadata.

Enable search endpoint on user groups

Jake Vandevyvere 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 3 months ago 6

For a lot of our customers, we update the domain rights of the user groups through the REST API. Since we want to use the same configuration for multiple environments (DEV, QA and PROD) we have to use the names of the groups and not the IDs. This means that we have to use a GET call to retrieve all user groups, and then pick out the ID of the user group that we want to update. This is a very time consuming process, since the number of user groups can become quite large.

Therefore, we would like to ask if it would be possible to add a search endpoint on user groups. We could then just search on the name of the group, instead of having to import all of them. This endpoint could work in a similar way as the search endpoint for users.


Sitecore connector: Possibility to browse for Aprimo assets in General link fields - solving pdf challenge

Peter Dideriksen 5 months ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 5 months ago 1

We cannot currently search for- and include PDFs from DAM into Sitecore via the Aprimo DAM connector. The “Browser Aprimo” button does not appear (see attached screenshot) for the field type we use for this. The Sitecore field we use for linking to these files is of the type “General”.

As these fields are used in thousands of items in Sitecore, and do not use the same interface as an Asset field, we cannot change the field type.

Our proposed solution is to update the connector to include an extension to the “General” link field, so it becomes possible to browse for Aprimo assets in General link fields, in just the same way as when browsing for images. For General fields, it should be possible to link to any type of asset in DAM.


SQL Object API

Guy Curry 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 3 months ago 5

Looks like the "Ability to Edit SQL Objects and run sql query to return results" is planned for Q3 2019.  It would be awesome if the same "Update SQL Objects" feature could exposed to the API to enable us to create our own ways of validating and running queries against Aprimo.


Ability to set a default filter in Adobe Creative Cloud Connector

Joris Wynendaele [Aprimo] 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by petra.tant 2 years ago 2

As a InDesign/Photoshop user I would like to have the ability to set a default filter on my search result. For example: I only want to see JPG, TIFF and PSD files when using the Adobe Creative Cloud Connector from InDesign. Although I might have access to a lot more assets from a security perspective; these are the only files that interest me when browsing/searching the DAM from within InDesign/Photoshop

Advanced search in Adobe Creative Cloud Connector

Jake Vandevyvere 1 year ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by petra.tant 1 year ago 2

When using the Creative Cloud Connector in Adobe InDesign, you can only filter assets through a free text search (which does not support field definitions for example) or by selecting a single classification. Often, this is not sufficient, as the end user still has to search through a few hundreds or thousands of assets until he finds the one he needs.

One possible solution for this would be to enable some kind of advanced search in the Creative Cloud Connector. Ideally, one would be able to select a combination of classifications by selecting/unselecting more than one classification in the browse tree. It would also be beneficial if the free text search would be extended to cope with field definitions.

Alternatively, it would also be a big help if facets could be defined in the Connector. This would then behave similarly to the Browse page in Asset studio.


Data Loader - Case insensitive lookups for base fields

Athar Siddiqui 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 2 years ago 1

Currently when we load activities via loader, the process use case sensitivity to validates lookup data in the data file e.g. if an activity type is Coupon FSI and the value in file is coupon FSI, the process will fail. This is true for all the fields which requires validation against master data in Aprimo. Another example is funding mode, if populate fixed amount instead of Fixed Amount in the file process will fail. This take unnecessary time and effort. Like to make validation case in sensitive.

Event-driven architecture (or Web Hooks) of Aprimo DAM.

christopher.fredrickson 4 months ago in Integrations / Connectors updated 1 month ago 10

This request is being entered at the direction of Joris Wynendaele and Andrew Conforti

Aprimo Marketing Ops platform provides the ability to include a HMAC header when configuring WebHooks (events from Aprimo to SE). Refer HMAC section on this page: https://developers.aprimo.com/marketing-operations/webhooks/ Click to follow link.">https://developers.aprimo.com/marketing-operations/webhooks/

However, this feature is not available in Aprimo “DAM” module. For integrations in SE, Aprimo DAM will have to implement WebHooks/Callouts upon status changes to Digital Assets and since SE’s Events API does not allow usage of Basic Auth or static/non-expiring tokens, having this HMAC will enable SE to validate the authenticity of the event from Aprimo DAM.

SE therefore needs Aprimo to provide this HMAC feature in DAM module as well. Additionally, SE also needs Aprimo to provide customization of the “header-name”. (SE uses Sign-Data as the header-name to receive HMAC data, while Aprimo uses X-SH1).


New Page Hooks Required

Ken Hill 10 months ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Tarun Chawla 10 months ago 10

The PNC Team is currently using Page Hooks and Registrations to redirect our users to an On Premise Upload Page.  The Redirect also sends the relevant Object ID for the Page Hook.  This is done to ensure SPII Data is not stored at rest in the Cloud.

Given this solution model, we are in need of some new Page Hooks to control this upload process in our Aprimo Instance.

New Page Hooks Needed:

  1. My Reviews
  2. Proposal Template
  3. Program
  4. Program Proposal
  5. Activity Proposal


Akamai CDN connector for Akamai on Azure

Doug Mullin 1 year ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by petra.tant 1 year ago 2

Hello. We have a Client who would like to leverage Akamai CDN on Azure. From what Tarun has told us, the new Akamai connector only works with Akamai Net storage. Our Client has a strong preference for Akamai on Azure because they are already a MS Azure shop and want to keep CDN in the existing stack. Thank you.

Load activity forecast without diabling forecast approval flag

Athar Siddiqui 2 years ago in Integrations / Connectors updated by Mark Weissman 2 years ago 1

Currently system doesn't allow to load activity forecasts without turning off approval parameter. To turn off approval it is required to process all approval queues. Need to have ability to load forecast via loader without disabling approval
