web action

An action that interacts directly with users through a web page. For example, content offers and web chats are web actions.

This topic is part of the manual Altocloud Administrator's Guide for version Current of Altocloud.

Learn how to specify the webpages where an action map triggers.

Prerequisites

Apply an action map to webpages

1

When you create an action map that uses a web action, build an expression that determines on which webpages the action map should or should not trigger:

  1. Under Apply to selected pages, click Add page.
  2. In the Show this action map if the page URL list, select the appropriate operator.
  3. In the some path or keyword box, type the appropriate value (as needed by the operator you selected).
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To add an OR condition, next to the some path or keyword box, click the +. For more information, see OR conditions.
    • To add an AND condition, under the boxes, click Add. For more information, see AND conditions.
  5. Verify that the expression is valid.

Operators for URL conditions

Operator Matches Description Notes
equals a full URL only The action map triggers only when the visitor is on a website page with a URL that exactly matches all of the characters you define.


Note: You must specify the protocol, either http: or https:.

If you define an equals condition you cannot define any other AND conditions.

Correct:

  • equals http://abc.com OR http://def.com OR http://xyz.com

Incorrect:

  • equals abc.com OR def.com
  • equals abc.com AND equals xyz.com
not equals a full URL only The action map triggers only when the visitor is on a website page with a URL that exactly matches all of the characters you define.


Note: You must specify the protocol, either http: or https:.

If you define a not equals condition you cannot define any other AND conditions.


Correct:

  • not equals http://abc.com OR http://def.com OR http://xyz.com<br />

Incorrect:

  • equals abc.com OR def.com
  • equals abc.com AND equals xyz.com
like a "substring match" The action map triggers only when the visitor is on a website page with a URL that contains some of the characters you define.



This is useful when you want to target a unique query string parameter (a keyword) that appears in multiple URLs.

You can build conditions containing multiple like and not like operators.

Correct:

  • like insurance AND like auto OR home OR health
not like a "substring match" The action map triggers only when the visitor is on a website page with a URL that does not contains any of the characters you define.
starts with identical characters starting from the beginning of the string up to and including the last character in the string Use the starts with operator when your URLs are generally unvarying but can include query string parameters at the end that you want to exclude.


Note: You must specify the protocol, either http: or https:.

You can have one starts with or one ends with operator per condition.


Correct:

Incorrect:

  • starts with abc.com OR xyz.com AND starts with abc.com OR xyz.com
ends with identical characters starting from the end of the string up to and including the first character in the string Use the ends with operator when you want to match a specific query string parameters at the end of the URL.



For example, you can match shopping cart pages that use /thankyou.html at the end of their URLs.

You can have one ends with operator per condition.

Condition errors

1

As you build your condition, Altocloud automatically checks for syntax errors, including a valid protocol, spaces and extra special characters. If there are syntax errors, Altocloud displays an error message. For more information see the notes for the operator you are using.

OR conditions

1

You can add as many OR conditions as you need for each operator. For information on the available operators, see Operators for URL conditions.

Important
If you use an "OR" condition, the action map triggers if either of the conditions is true.

AND conditions

1

You can add as many AND conditions as you need for each operator. For information on the available operators, see Operators for URL conditions.
Important
If you use an "AND" condition, the action map triggers only if both conditions is true.

Remove a condition

1

To remove a condition, hover over it and click the x that appears.

Verify that the expression is valid

1

After you define the expression to apply an action map to a webpage, check to be sure that the expression is valid.

  1. Under Check if the action map targets the web page(s), type the first URL to check in the box.
  2. To check another URL, click + and type the next URL.
  3. When you have specified all of the pages to check, click Check.
  4. Review the results.

Important
If you see, "No" when you check a webpage, it means that the URL doesn't match the specified conditions. Check your expression:
  • If you are using the equals, or not equals operators, be sure you have specified a full URL.
  • If you are using the equals, not equals, or starts with operators, be sure you have specified the protocol.
