Hi everyone.

What's the recommended way to set a custom visitor ID for Analytics on web using:

  • Launch
  • Experience Cloud ID Service plugin
  • Adobe Analytics plugin

We are currently using the Experience ID plugin to make the user IDs. But we have a logged-in section on our site and would perhaps like to use a hashed version of the logged-in user ID.

I've looked at the documentation but am still not sure which method is appropriate.

We only have an Analytics Select license, so we only have access to Analytics and Launch, not other products in the AEP ecosystem.

If you're using other Adobe products like Adobe Target, Adobe Campaign Standard, etc., then you're better off sticking with Experience Cloud ID Service. This is because all of those other products identify visitors by the ECID only.

But if you don't use anything other than AA and Launch, then take a look at visitorID.
