Setting Up Automated QA Checks in Unica Campaign


Define QA Objectives

  • Validation Focus: Determine what aspects of the flowcharts and processes you want to validate, such as data accuracy and logic consistency.

Prepare Your Environment

  • Test Data: Create or identify a set of test data representing various scenarios your campaigns might encounter.
  • Staging Area: Set up a staging environment that mirrors your production environment to conduct QA checks without affecting live campaigns.

Create QA Flowcharts

  • Design Flowcharts: Design flowcharts specifically for QA purposes, including processes to validate data, logic, and performance.

Implement Validation Processes

  • Utilize Unica Features: Leverage Unica’s various process boxes and features, such as User Variables and Derived Fields, to calculate specific metrics and metadata, such as counts, ranges, and messages (flags).

Set Up Automated Notifications

  • Trigger Alerts: Set up automated notifications for flowchart success and/or failure. Use a simple 1/0 statement within a Select Process Box to trigger notifications when certain criteria are met, prompting a notification email to address issues.

Schedule Regular QA Runs

  • Regular Checks: Use Unica’s scheduling features to schedule regular QA checks on your flowcharts and processes, ensuring continuous monitoring and validation without manual intervention.


Company XYZ Implementation

Company XYZ aims to implement an automated QA check to ensure the accuracy of their campaign data and verify that all submitted campaigns have successfully deployed and are receiving responses.

Scenario 1 – Targeting and Exclusion Criteria: To set up a QA flowchart, use the final deployment file as input. The flowchart processes the file and generates a report outlining outliers, identifying individuals who should or should not be in the final file. This triggers an automated alert for stakeholders to address the issues.

Scenario 2 – Response Monitoring: Design a QA flowchart to ensure contact history records for campaigns, particularly email campaigns, are receiving responses within an acceptable timeframe. If no responses are received, the flowchart generates a detailed report, alerting stakeholders to investigate and address deployment issues.
