Sendinblue

Sendinblue is a marketing automation tool that sends emails to a contact list and provides detailed campaign reports to analyze email status whether they were opened, clicked, or unsubscribed.

This tool has been integrated with Cirrus Shield to keep track of campaigns made in Sendinblue and to know which communications were sent to which contacts and when.

This section provides the configurations required to enable Sendinblue service within Cirrus Shield (only the administrator system can do the configuration).

Campaign Configuration


- Add a new Text field and put “SIB_Campaign_ID” in the Name field (it should be exactly the same).
- Check the External ID and the Unique checkboxes.
- Go to the Page Designer tab.
- Add the "SIB_Campaign_ID" field into your campaigns page.

Campaign Member Configuration


- Add a new Text field and put “SIB_Campaign_Member_ID” in the Name field (it should be exactly the same).

- Go to the Page Designer tab.

6- Note that this URL should contain the username and password of Cirrus-shield which are set after the equals signs (un for username and pw for password).
