I'm attempting to understand how to create a custom feature for Marketing Automation, so I started by creating a simple "Hello, World" style condition that just returns true, so I can see it run through the plan...
I created the simple class, inheriting from ICondition:
public class SampleRule : ICondition
public bool Evaluate(IRuleExecutionContext context)
var stuff = context;
Log.Info(context?.ToString() ?? "NULL", this.GetType().FullName);
And added the config file to automation settings, registering the rule:
However, after registering the rule, the automation stops working and I get this exception in the log for the marketing automation:
Failed to create activity instance from type 'Sitecore.Marketing.Automation.Activity.CustomListener, Sitecore.Marketing.Automation.Activity, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'
System.ArgumentException: Problems processing configuration-based DescriptorLocators. 1 error(s) encoutered :
Unable to resolve type for Predicate Descriptor with Id - 'fa926d5f-793b-48bb-ac6b-2dbf39ae21e1'
I did deploy the dll for my class to both the site root bin and the marketing automation folder. I tried deploying it to the parent xconnect folder too to see if that would help but it didn't. It seems like I'm missing something but I'm not sure where else I should deploy this or if that is even the problem.
I also registered the condition in the content tree, pointing to the same library, and the ID of that item is the same as the config above...
How can I troubleshoot this, so that I can resolve this issue and my plan can see my type?
