I am trying to create a journey. The entry source I selected is : Audience -> Automation Studio Audience.

The problem:

The automation has 2 steps

step 1: Import Activity : Pulls data from Salesforce Report into a data extension. Lets call this Data Extension A

Step 2: Query Activity : Filters this data extension and inserts the filtered fat into another data extension. Lets call this Data Extension B

Now in the journey builder in the 'Select Data Extension' Step I can see only data extension A. It does not show the data extension B which is populated in the second step of the automation activity.

Can someone tell me why this is? Thanks in advance.

  • Is DE B a Sendable one ? – Maneesh Apr 3 '17 at 10:15
  • @Maneesh Yes DE B is a Sendable one – mit88 Apr 3 '17 at 11:12
  • I tried it just now and it worked for me straightaway. Does your DE have a primary key ? – Maneesh Apr 3 '17 at 12:39
  • Hello Maneesh, I just tried again and it worked. Probably the reason was I had moved the DE that gets populated to a different folder. Now its working fine. Thanks for checking and sorry for that. – mit88 Apr 3 '17 at 13:00
