Sending email without creating contact?


I was wondering if it was possible to create a trigger based campaign without creating the contact data, facets, …

I want to avoid creating those for a specific interaction type.

I tried to use the functionality of Anonymous id_origin but it doesn’t seem to help me doing it.

By testing the function module CUAN_CE_INTERACTIONS_POST_FLAT

And filled the fields:







My interaction is created but without SMTP_ADDR and without EMAIL_OPTIN (became blanco due to anonymous I suppose)

I have no new contact and no new facet but also no email sent …

Do I need to create all those contacts and facets and cleaned them? Is that the only way?

Did anyone experience that?

PS: I am on the on-prem version 1702

    Hi Catherine,

    I checked with the expert. This is not really feasible. What's the use case/ process behind this requirement?

    The only way is to create the contacts and delete them right after usage. But again, what's the use case?

    Regards, Matthias

    Hi Catherine,

    The setting "Incognito" has the implication that no contact is created with this origin and also interactions with this origin do not get assigned to a contact.

    If you don't have the entity contact in the whole process, how do you want to create a target group and subsequently trigger a campaign for this target group?!

    I don't think this is possible in standard.

    Best regards,
