Adobe analytics Ipv6 support

Avatar

Level 1

I came across this post https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-analytics-ideas/support-ipv6-addresses-within...which says that Adobe Analytics do not support IPV6.

 

What is the impact of this?

 

IPV6 devices cannot send analytics data to Adobe Analytics or these devices can send the analytics data but the IP will not be captured in Adobe Analytics.

 

If any of above, what is the recommendation to handle IPV6 mobile devices?

Hey @user02531 The Adobe Mobile SDKs use the standard iOS and Android network stacks. For iOS, the SDK uses NSURLSession (iOS versions 7+) and NSURLConnection (iOS versions 7 and later) which are fully compliant with IPv6.

 

Developers who have built or use their own networking stack might want to review if there are other mitigating considerations. Here is some additional information from Apple:

 

If you’re writing a client-side app using high-level networking APIs such as NSURLSession and the CFNetwork frameworks and you connect by name, you should not need to change anything for your app to work with IPv6 addresses. For more information see, Supporting IPv6 DNS64/NAT64 Networks.

Thank you @RaawiMahendru  . We are using the flutter plugins mentioned in https://aep-sdks.gitbook.io/docs/resources/upgrading-to-aep/current-sdk-versions#flutter .  Will you be able to confirm if these plugins support both V6 and V4 for IOS and Android?
