  • If you are working with our finance module, fields that were before filled with our default mappings might be set to null. Please check for this your Mapping BA and every field which has a null source field but a target field value set and if they get set as expected in your invoicing processes.

  • If you decide to start using our Campaign Builder open beta the default settings record will not get created. Please follow the steps explained on this page to do so: https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/2997125123 .

Improvement

AdServer Gateway / smart

We improved the delivery report features for our SMART Integration. Due to some recent changes, if a delivery report failed (for example all of the Items are not running yet and don’t have any delivery data) ADvendio got stuck in a loop, thus blocking also further delivery reports to SMART with a ‘This process is already running exception’.

We reworked our error handling, so that a prober error message is returned if we could not get any delivery data from SMART and that other processes from ADvendio will no longer be blocked!

The new error message shown if SMART does not return any Delivery Data for ADvendio to import is: ‘Error: Report failed: Requested report is empty. Status returned from server: EMPTY_REPORT’
