Adobe Analytics: Classification Rule Builder "Run Test" Enhancements

Hi,

 

To avoid any confusion between what we expect and what we really get in the reporting can you improve the "Run Test" functionality to reflect that all "0" values will be report as "[empty]" or "None" (Known issue: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/kb/en_US/analytics/kb/zero-as-key-value-in-saint.html).

 

Here is what we get in the "Run Test":

But the report we get "None":

Here is teh answer I received from Adobe Client Care: "The screen shot that you are referring to is to validate the regular expression. When it come to Report & Analytics Classification, Classifications cannot differentiate the value 0 from a blank cell, so it cannot classify this value. This is working as designed."

"Working as designed" what a copout b.s. answer. 

 

I think it's literally everybody's expectation that the rule tester should show you exactly what you will end up getting in the reports. And if that is somehow not Adobe's vision of it, then I strongly recommend Adobe change their vision.  

 

Better yet: fix your classification bug to begin with. I really can't believe it's been almost 10 years and still nobody on your end knows how to make a code update that amounts to converting to a strict comparison (e.g. php === instead of ==).
