Integrate with Responsys

Integration with Responsys lets you insert published assets from an Oracle Content Management asset repository into Responsys Email and Mobile campaigns. Using Oracle Content Management as a single source for all images saves rework because you can find your images easily.

Responsys users can leverage the extensive asset repositories in Oracle Content Management to store content while using Responsys to design campaigns. When you design Email and Mobile campaigns, this integration gives you the option to insert published image assets from Oracle Content Management into your campaigns. You can choose digital assets from an Oracle Content Management publishing channel through the Responsys application.

This is an overview of the Responsys integration with Oracle Content Management:

Then you can create and publish assets in Oracle Content Management and view images in Responsys Message preview.

For more detailed information, see the Responses documentation in the Oracle Help Center.

Choose an Asset Repository and Create Two Publishing Channels

When you design an Email or Mobile campaign, you will choose assets from the publishing channel for the appropriate campaign type. Responsys will automatically filter content assets in Oracle Content Management according to the campaign you are designing.

After you choose an asset repository in Oracle Content Management, create and share two publishing channels: a mobile channel and an email channel. Oracle suggests creating channels that are specifically for Responsys. See Create and Share Publishing Channels.

In Responsys, you can choose Oracle Content Management assets from these channels.
