    @Paolo...I will forward this to Bipin Patel, OM for SMS. What you are describing sounds like a new even type and/or additional attributes in the existing SMS events that are published to UBX. If that is the case, the enhancement will be owned by WCA team for implementation. I can collaborate with them on defining a new event type or modifying existing ones.

    Hi Paolo:

    Here's a workaround you might try:

    When you configure the SMS Program Step, append the Step Name to the Message Name. Message Name is included in the 'Source' field of the UBX event 'sentSMS'.

    Here's a sample of what would be returned in the UBX sentSMS event source fields:

    1 Program Step1:

    { "name": "source", "value": "mailingId=xxx1,jobId=xxx3,reportId=xxx2,recipientId=xxx,eventSource=mGage,campName=null,msgName=Offer_Step1", "type": "string", "isSync": false},

    2. Program Step 2:

    { "name": "source", "value": "mailingId=xxx3,jobId=xxx5,reportId=xxx4,recipientId=xxx,eventSource=mGage,campName=null,msgName=Offer_Step2", "type": "string", "isSync": false},

    Please let us know if this would meet your needs.

    I had observed that the last events that I received this information is within this big field.

    Sarah, ideally this information should be in one separated field, but this solution resolves my problem.
