In trying to develop a process to deal with MobileConnect Contacts, I have come to understand that the old SMS DE
_SubscriberSMS has been deprecated and that the new DEs that will contain this information are:
_MobileSubscription. I presume that these DEs contain information about the Contact (with a primary key of mobile number or
SubscriberId) and the contacts' subscriptions, respectively.
The information that was given to me (by ET) about
_MobileAddress was that it contained the following fields:
City ContactID CountryCode CreatedBy CreatedDate FirstName LastName MobileNumber ModifiedBy ModifiedDate State Status ZipCode
However, when I try to set up a query like
SELECT MobileNumber FROM _MobileAddress, I am told that that field does not exist. If I modify the DE to something like
_MobileAddressX it tells me that DE doesn't exist, so presumably
_MobileAddress exists and has an unknown set of fields.
Can anyone tell me how to get more information about
What fields do they have?
Can I access it via API or only through Queries?
Since MobileConnect does not seem to support a series of functions for maintaining Mobile Contacts, it would be infinitely useful to be able to access those contacts and their subscriptions at the data level.
