I have searched and can not find anything similar.

I have a Rule, Event = send email after someone registers for an event. I have the rule sending to the user just fine. However, I am trying to also email the Author of the page and I can find the correct replacement pattern.

I have an action Fetch Entity by ID Value=registration - DATA-Selector=registration:author:uid

I have tried many patterns: [node:author:mail] mail - Nothing happens [registration:author:uid] uid - give me the logged in user id [registration:author:uid] reg-a-uid (this give mne the id of the logged in user- not the author on the page.) [node:author:uid] node-a-uid [site:author:uid] site-a-uid [registration:author] reg-author - show logged in user [registration:author:mail] reg-author-mail - show logged in user

I am at a loss when trying to figure out how to pull the author of the node/page to email them. Any ideas??? Thanks


I was able to get the Author to print out.

author: [registration:entity:author]

Any ideas to pull the author first name, email and phone number???

Please any little thought would help. Thanks

  • how you are handling registration process? looks like registration is an entity itself,are you using any contrib module for registration?

  • We are using the Registration module. We have a live events page with the registration block on the page to register for that event. I can choose from a few different options, entity is not one. Node, registration, user, profile, and a few others.

So after getting the base set I needed to connect to the table for the users profile information.

So for first name it would be:


So for phone number it would be:(field_office is what they called the Office Phone field.)


Hope it helps someone else.

  • I'm a "rules" fan (can you tell from my rep specific to its tag?). Therefor i'm curious what you mean by "connect to the table". Can you explain that AbitMORE please? Dec 15, 2015 at 10:55
