SMS message name is not sent in the smsEvents

When WCA sends the SMS events to UBX, it does not have the message name.

It should include the message name to be easy to tracking on DW systems.

    This is a Critical ask from an ISA customer. This customer is a large Indian bank and it is imperative to have the message name in UBX.

    Sarah - Client is using WCA to trigger SMS via mGage. Does this answer the question?

    Thanks Saurabh, I ask because these attributes are only available for SMS messages triggered through the WCA UI.

    We are in the process of adding these attributes to the sentSMS event in UBX:

    1. messageId (only available for SMS sent via WCA UI)
    2. messageName (only available for SMS sent via WCA UI) 
    3. programId (only sent when SMS is sent as a WCA automation program step, not to be confused with smsProgram which is the Text to Join program)

    Update:  We were not able to add the messageId, messageName, and programId to the sentSMS UBX event.  However, we have updated the Source attribute to include mailingId (the WCA system-generated unique ID for an SMS send) and msgName (SMS message name entered in WCA UI).
