Issue A webhook that looks to be structured the same as other functioning webhooks is failing with HTTP Error 400: Bad URL request.

Issue Description Facebook Lead Ads was configured in a Sandbox subscription and then migrated to the Production subscription after testing was completed. After that swap, the Facebook Lead Ads integration is not passing records to the Production subscription.     Issue Resolution Deleting the Facebook LaunchPoint service does not unregister it from the Facebook Lead Ad pages. To ensure that the Facebook Lead Ad pages is unregistered from the Sandbox subscription and successfully reconnects to the production subscription, perform the following steps:       1. Go into the sandbox and create (or Edit if it still exists) the Facebook LaunchPoint again (just leave the default settings for pages and fields).   2. Once created, go back into the Facebook LaunchPoint and UNSELECT all of the pages that are currently selected (You want to make sure no pages are selected at this point).   3. Save. By doing this you will be unregistering the Marketo endpoint from all the Facebook Lead Ad pages for the sandbox subscription. You can then delete the LaunchPoint if you wish from the Sandbox subscription.   4. Go into the production subscription, since the Facebook LaunchPoint service exists, go back in edit mode and select all the pages you want to leads to come from.   5. Save. This should be able to successfully select the Facebook Lead Ad pages and register them to the production subscription.   6. Test one of the Facebook Lead Ad pages and verify if the data syncs to the Production subscription.     Who This Solution Applies To Facebook Lead Ads Is this article helpful ? YesNo

Issue You are experiencing slow processing of campaigns, smart lists, and reports.     Solution There are three key components that can slow down an instance: Number of trigger campaigns : Trigger campaigns are always on, always listening.  If there are 50 campaigns triggering at the same time, all the 50 triggers will be in queue, slowing down your processing and routing inside Marketo. Solution: Reduce the number of Triggers. Convert some of the triggers to batches: Batches also run all the flow steps for every lead at once, instead of serially, which reduces total processing time.   Complexity of smart lists : The more complex a smart list, the harder it is for the system to figure it out, which increases backend processing and even creates campaign failures from timeouts. Solution: Reduce the number of nested smart lists called in a smart list. Whenever you ask Marketo to call another Smart List, it has to wait until all of the other smart lists finish, before putting together the final counts. Instead of Marketo looking for the list and running it, just put the filters in the trigger itself.   Volume of Leads: With regular cleaning and good systems design, it is fairly easy to keep your system running fast. Reduce the number of leads that can flow through with filters. Clean up the inactive leads at regular intervals.

    Overview Add Leads to Static Lists Use Custom Fields Overview Lead records have two primary components – lead attributes and activity logs. Lead attributes are the fields and field values within the lead record. For example, Job Title is a lead attribute. Lead Name is a lead attribute. Activity logs record the actions Marketo or the lead themselves have taken. For example, sending an email to a lead is an activity that would show in the activity log. If the lead opens the email or visits a tracked page, those activities would show in the activity log as well.   Activities in the activity log are only retained for 90 days, 25 months, or 37 if you have purchased the premium data retention option. The official Marketo Data Retention Policy can be found here:  Marketo Activities Data Retention Policy   The main way to store activity data beyond the Data Retention Policy timeframe is to use the Bulk Extract API. There are two other ways you can keep a reference of these activities after the end of the Data Retention period, and they can be referenced within the Marketo UI. This article will show you how that can be done.     Add Leads to Static Lists Static lists will retain lead membership even if the activity of adding the lead to the list has been removed. This will let you have lists dedicated to specific criteria that would otherwise be removed after the data retention time period has been passed.   For example, Smart Campaign membership history is not retained after 25 months. If you are searching for members of a Smart Campaign, but a lead first became a member of the Smart Campaign more than 25 months ago, the search results would not include that lead.   An easy way to work around that is to add your leads to a static list as part of the flow of the campaign. When creating your Smart Campaign, create a new static list with the same corresponding name (makes it easier to identify later). When building the flow of your campaign, add the "Add to List" flow step so that all leads going through the campaign will be logged on the list.         Use Custom Fields Lead attributes and their field values are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. Use Smart Campaigns to populate custom fields with values based on activities your leads take. This will allow you to filter leads by these lead attributes that are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. A side benefit to this is that it is faster to search by lead attributes than by searching through lead activity logs.   Example: This approach can work for many different activities, but let’s use form fill outs as an example.   Let’s say you want to be able to identify leads who have been very active and have filled out more than 5 forms over their lifecycle. You could use the filter “Filled Out Form” with the “Min. Number of Times” constraint set to 5. However, if one of those forms filled out occurred more than 25 months ago, the filter would only be able to access 4 form fill activities in the activity log. Therefore, the lead would not pass the filter.   Instead of using the “Filled Out Form” filter, set up a Smart Campaign to write to custom fields that show you how many forms they’ve filled out, and when the first one was. Here’s how to do it:   1. Create two new custom fields in Marketo, one Score Field, and the second a Date Field.   2. Create a new Smart Campaign   3. Add the trigger “Fills Out Form” set to “is any” to the Campaign Smart List     4. Add these two Flow Steps to the Campaign Flow: Flow Step 1 : “Change Score” Score Field Name: your score field name Change: +1   Flow Step 2 : “Change Data Value” Add Choice to Flow Step Choice 1: If “your score field name”  “is empty” Attribute “your score field name” New Value: {{system.date}} Default Choice: Do Nothing       This campaign will listen for any time a lead fills out a form, add +1 to your score field, and if it’s the very first form they’ve ever filled out, it will log the date of when it was done. If the lead has ever filled out a form in the past, there will already be a date value in the date field, so the flow choice would just skip over it and do nothing.       Results You’ll See: With the original goal of identifying leads who have filled out more than 5 forms you’ll be able to filter for leads that have filled out at least 5 forms. In addition, this campaign will let you search for leads based on when they had filled out their very first form, regardless of how long ago it was. Since it’s stored in a lead field, it’s a lead attribute that is not affected by the Data Retention Policy at all.

Issue Description You are receiving this error from your GoToWebinar Launchpoint Service: API Error: Authentication succeeded, but access to the requested resource is denied. This error can occur either in Launchpoint Tab's Service details in Admin or when trying to Refresh an Event Program and selecting the service in the drop down menu. Issue Resolution This error "API Error: Authentication succeeded, but access to the requested resource is denied." is a response from GoToWebinar when Marketo sends an API Call to retrieve the Webinar Meeting details. What is the main cause of this? This is mainly a licensing issue with the Account Credentials specified in the Launchpoint service. The GoToWebinar account does not have a GoToWebinar License and therefore, the account has successfully "Authenticated" and the Requested resource (GoToWebinar Meeting Details) were denied as it does not have access to GoToWebinar features. How to check if you have a license? Login into the home page of GoToWebinar with the account credentials used in the Launchpoint Service and check if GoToWebinar Product is selectable. (if GTW is not selectable then the account does not have a product license) Speak to your GoToWebinar Account Admin if you are using a corporate account and ensure that it has a GoToWebinar License. Contact the GoToWebinar's Support Team Other Causes Other reasons this may have occurred is that a Trial account for GoToWebinar was used and the trial has expired. You may be using a login under a corporate account that does not have the license or was removed. - Check with your GoToWebinar Admin for more details Who This Solution Applies To GoToWebinar Launchpoint Users Is this article helpful ?
