Configuring external subscriber sources

An external subscriber sources provides (additional) subscriber to a newsletter instance.

You configure an external subscriber source as Zope 3 utility providing ISubscriberSource (here an example where subscriptions are managed external through MongoDB):

class NewsletterSource(object):

    implements(ISubscriberSource)

    def getSubscribers(self, newsletter):
        """ return all subscribers for the given newsletter
            from the MyInfo user database. Newsletter subscriptions
            are referenced inside MyInfo through UIDs.
        """

        uid = newsletter.UID()

        # find MyInfo subscribers
        myinfo = getUtility(IMyInfo)
        subscribers = list()
        for user in myinfo.accounts.find({'data.newsletters' : uid, 'state' : 'active'}):
            subscribers.append(dict(email=user['email'],
                                    fullname=user['username']))
        return subscribers

The utility must be registered using ZCML:

<utility zcml:condition="installed Products.EasyNewsletter"
    name="MyInfo subscribers"
    factory=".newsletter.NewsletterSource" />

Inside the Edit view of the instance under the External tab you should find MyInfo subscribers under the option External subscriber source.
