Acoustic: Export Audiences
Send Lytics user profiles and audience membership to your Acoustic Database to refine your targeting and deliver personalized messaging across channels. All existing users and new users of the selected Lytics audiences are exported.
- Implementation Type: Server-side.
- Implementation Technique: XML API and Audience triggers.
- Frequency: Real-time.
- Resulting data: Lytics users are exported to Acoustic Database.
This integration utilizes the Acoustic Import List API to export user data from Lytics to the Acoustic Database. Once the export is started, the job:
- Creates the column mapping file according to the fields selected during configuration and uploads to the Acoustic Campaign SFTP server.
- Writes the users that are part of selected Lytics audiences to the CSV file and initiates the CSV Import job in Acoustic.
- Repeats step 1 and 2 every 15 minutes if job is configured to update continuously.
You can export any Lytics user fields to Acoustic Database columns that are present in the selected Acoustic Database. Lytics allows you to map user fields with the corresponding Acoustic Database columns as part of the job configuration described below.
