Automated Classification on an eVar


Level 2

we have captured offerid (this a long alpha numeric string and hard to understand ) in an eVarx and I want automated classification of that eVar provided the other attributes of offerId are in other data store.So once the marketing system ( where all the offer are maintained) has some new offer created and the corresponding value is captured in Analytics ,classification rule get executed but all the other attribute will be pulled from Offer management tool.


Any though to achieve this is highly appreciated.

If I understand this correctly you have the following:


evarX = j43049vj390d90d03jj

evarX(classification) = 10% discount



If this is the case then assuming you have a database somewhere that has all the codes and classification values stored then you can setup an automated FTP upload to Adobe that updates daily from your sql setup.


It's important to note that every row in the file counts as a hit, so if for example you have 50k discounts, you should only update the ones that have been added each day (delta differencing) to save you costs down the line and to keep the process as quick as possible.

@devenderm250480If you want to automatically classify the evar data then you can also use Classification Rule Builder method where in you you can define the rule set based on which you want to classify the data. For more information on Classification Rule Builder you can refer to the below documentation link.



Note: The Classification Builder will only classify the data going forward. If you need to classify the historical data then you will need to use the Classification Importer method as mentioned by @David_Jerome 

Hope this helps.
