ENGAGE


  Creating an import map file:

    map_file_path  = 'LIST_MAP.XML'

    list_info = { :action       => 'ADD_AND_UPDATE',
                  :list_id      => 1234567,
                  :file_type    => 0,
                  :has_headers  => true }

    columns   = [ { :name=>'EMAIL',         :type=>9, :is_required=>true,   :key_column=>true },
                  { :name=>'FIRST_NAME',    :type=>0, :is_required=>false,  :key_column=>false },
                  { :name=>'LAST_NAME',     :type=>0, :is_required=>false,  :key_column=>false } ]

    mappings  = [ { :index=>1,  :name=>'EMAIL' },
                  { :index=>2,  :name=>'FIRST_NAME' },
                  { :index=>3,  :name=>'LAST_NAME' } ]

    engage_api = Silverpop::Engage.new
    engage_api.create_map_file(map_file_path, list_info, columns, mappings)


  Creating the gzipped CSV data file:
  
    csv_file_path = 'LIST_DATA.csv.gz'
    users = User.all()
    Zlib::GzipWriter.open(csv_file_path) do |gz|
      gz.write [ 'EMAIL', 'FIRST_NAME', 'LAST_NAME' ].join(',') + "\n"
      users.each { |u| gz.write [ u.email, u.first_name, u.last_name ].join(',') + "\n" }
      gz.close
    end


  FTPing import map file and gzipped CSV file over to Silverpop:

    engage_api = Silverpop::Engage.new
    engage_api.login
    engage_api.import_list(map_file_path, csv_file_path)
    engage_api.logout


  Grab a list of all the queries in Silverpop and recalculate them. (This is really handy after you
  update your email list):

    api = Silverpop::Engage.new, []
    api.login

    doc = Hpricot::XML( api.get_lists(1, 1) ) # Public queries
    (doc/:LIST).each { |n| api.calculate_query(n.at('ID').innerHTML) }

    doc = Hpricot::XML( api.get_lists(0, 1) ) # Private queries
    (doc/:LIST).each { |n| api.calculate_query(n.at('ID').innerHTML) }

    api.logout

TRANSACT


  Defining recipients:

    recipient = { :email            => 'test@test.com',
                  :personalizations => [
                      {:tag_name => 'FIRST_NAME', :value => 'Joe'},
                      {:tag_name => 'LAST_NAME',  :value => 'Schmoe'}
                  ] }
    recipients = [  recipient,
                    { :email            => 'test2@test.com',
                    :personalizations => [
                        {:tag_name => 'FIRST_NAME', :value => 'John'},
                        {:tag_name => 'LAST_NAME',  :value => 'Smith'}
                    ] },
                    { :email            => 'test3@test.com',
                      :personalizations => [
                        {:tag_name => 'FIRST_NAME', :value => 'Jane'},
                        {:tag_name => 'LAST_NAME',  :value => 'Doe'}
                    ] } ]


  Transact HTTP Sample Usage:

    campaign_id = 1234567
    sp = Silverpop::Transact.new campaign_id, recipients
    sp.query


  Transact FTP Sample Usage:

    campaign_id = 1234567
    options.merge!( { :send_as_batch => 'true' } )

    transact = Silverpop::Transact.new(campaign_id, recipients, options)
    transact.save_xml     file_path
    transact.submit_batch file_path
