The Enqueue Create Embed Action automatically create embeds for sharing content.  This is especially useful for integrations, e.g., a CMS requires an embed link for a specific content , and for marketing operations, e.g. so users can easily pick embed links for distribution of files in ads, social media or mailings.

(lightbulb) The Business Rule will execute, and the embed link is created if the Content Item is updated with the Publishing channel “Sales.”

      JSON

    5. Action:

      1. Enqueue Create Embed Action
        Embed Name: Sales Material for Mailings (Default is: “Embed_RuleId”)
        Format ID: Preview (which format to use)
        Conversion string: (e.g. rotate90)
        Lock delivery options: true (select if users can manipulate the embed link parameters)
        Expiration date: variable or DateTime in ISO format (2022-10-10T10.00.00Z) with or without milliseconds
        Store URL in: embedUrlVariable (optional variable, which can then be assigned via Assign Value Action, or assign layer with default value)

      2. Assign Value Action
        path: layerId
        Field ID: fieldId
        Value: “$embedUrlVariable$“

Limitations

  • Only one Format ID is possible per action. For embeds with multiple formats, you have to create multiple actions.

  • Embed are always created new, embeds are not updated.

  • The creation could be delayed due to the performance of the system, the action is enqueued, not directly executed.
