  • How about adding this script into an empty email and sending it to an unused, test email address in an automation? Jan 28, 2019 at 9:17

You can't execute AMPscript directly from a Script Activity, since they're only for server-side JavaScript code. There are also no SSJS functions for updating SF objects.

You can, however, force SFMC to execute a string containing AMPscript using the TreatAsContent SSJS function:

var results = 0;

var SFIDPattern = new RegExp("^[a-zA-Z0-9]{18}");

if (SFIDPattern.test(contactID) == true) {

    var sf_fieldUpdateString = [];
    sf_fieldUpdateString.push('HasOptedOutOfEmail');
    sf_fieldUpdateString.push(1);

    var updateSFObject = "";
    updateSFObject += "\%\%[ ";
    updateSFObject += "set @salesforceFields = UpdateSingleSalesforceObject('Contact',";
    updateSFObject += "'" + contactID + "','"+  sf_fieldUpdateString.join("','") + "'";
    updateSFObject += ") ";
    updateSFObject += "output(concat(@salesforceFields)) ";
    updateSFObject += "]\%\%";

    try {

      results = Platform.Function.TreatAsContent(updateSFObject);

    } catch (e) {

      if (debug) { Write("<br>updateSFHasOptedOutOfEmailFlag error: " + Stringify(e)); }

    }

}

You can execute AMPScript in SSJS Activity leveraging ContentBlockByKey function.

Write you ampscript block in a code snippet and save it and write the below ssjs code snippet in your script activity.

  <script runat="server">
    Platform.Load("core", "1");
    var content = Platform.Function.ContentBlockByKey("ConentBlockName");
