Trigger administration

Unica Campaign allows you to define inbound and outbound triggers that can be used in all flowcharts in a partition.

Best practice is to provide trigger-level rights, such as Run triggers, only to restricted privileged users. Trigger permissions are available under Global Policy or by creating a custom role and adding that permission to it.

The trigger runs in the context of the user that runs the Unica Campaign listener. Therefore, the user from whose login the Unica Campaign listener is executed must have:

  • restricted access to system files/ directories
  • restricted execution rights on system level commands

Stored procedures are run with the same privileges as the user. Therefore, the Unica Campaign administrator should judiciously provide the add/edit stored procedure to users who need to perform this activity.

Note: For performance advantages, use the Unica Scheduler to send triggers to Unica Campaign. To learn more about the Scheduler, see the Unica Platform Administrator's Guide.
