Hi @JyotiSharmaV, Launch doesn't have historical data itself! If you delete the rule or extension on Launch, there isn't any affect the eVars from report suite.

Hi @JyotiSharmaV ,

 

Deleting extensions, disabling/deleting the rules in you Launch properties will affect only your future data. It wont affect your historic data.

 

Once your page fires analytics signal, it will pass thru processing rules --> VISTA --> Marketing Channel processing Rule --> Report Suites. If you make any changes in this flow it will affect your data during analytics hit. But once it reached Report Suites, it has nothing to do with Launch Web Properties, data elements , rules and extensions.

 

Hope this will be helpful for you.

 

Cheers

Hey @JyotiSharmaV - No, it will not delete any data which has already been captured. You will have historic data in all evars in the report suite.
