Purpose

There are situations where you might need to know if a field-value has certain length. This simple operation in Oracle Eloqua is not possible with out of the box features. This is where this Cloud Decision comes into play. With Field Length you can select a Contact Field and indicate the length to check. If it’s less than or equal to it then the contacts will be routed to either the yes or the no path on your campaign(s).

This document will show how this Cloud Decision can be used inside Campaign Canvas.
