Squiz Matrix's Paint Layout asset allows you to configure conditional keywords, to display a variety of content based on a number of configurable conditions (e.g. asset status or user type). 

The SOAP API's getAssetAvailableKeywords() function (which is used to return the keywords available for use on a specified asset or asset type), however, was not able to return these conditional keywords that had been configured on an Paint Layout asset.

This feature introduces a new function on the Squiz Matrix SOAP API's Asset Service, to retrieve the keywords of a Paint Layout asset, including any configured conditional keywords.

The getPaintLayoutAvailableKeywords() function takes the following parameters:

  • AssetID: the asset ID of the Paint Layout to return available keywords of.
  • TypeCode: an optional parameter to specify a customised asset type format to return the available keywords for.

The format of the getPaintLayoutAvailableKeywords() function is as follows


An example response is outlined below. Note that this function also returns the conditional keywords configured on the Paint Layout.

<GetPaintLayoutAvailableKeywordsResult>begin_condition_1%&lt;br /&gt;%else_condition_1%&lt;br /&gt;%end_condition_1</GetPaintLayoutAvailableKeywordsResult>

Bulkmail Subscribe Page: Custom Verification Email Subject Header (#6180) 

Squiz Matrix's Bulkmail Subscribe Page asset allows your users to subscribe and unsubscribe to bulkmail emails.

As part of this subscription process, an optional verification email can be configured, requiring users to confirm when subscribing or unsubscribing from bulkmail. Previously, however, the subject header for this verification email was unable to be manually configured; by default, the subject of the email was: Please confirm your subscription / unsubscription request.

This feature adds a new Verify Email Subject to the Details screen of the Bulkmail Subscribe Page, allowing you to configure a custom subject line for verification emails.
