SOLVED

Audience Manager vs Data Insertion API

Michael_Schuber

Hi,

we are using Audience Manager configured with Server-Side Forwarding (Analytics -> AAM).

We have some cases where we want to use the Data Insertion API to track specific service request on a backend server. It seems that data are not passed to AAM from Data Insertion calls.

Is it possible to forward data to AAM also by Data Insertion tracking calls?

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael,

It looks like server-side forwarding requires the location hint be present in the hit. Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to pass the location hint via XML. A workaround would be to create an HTTP request instead with the same information.

You can use the following documentation to help you retrieve the location hint. Keep in mind, you may also need to pull the 'aid' in addition to the 'mid' depending on your implementation.

Cheers,
Jantzen

Hi,

I'm moving this thread to the new Adobe Audience Manager community. Feel free to seek inputs, contribute and learn about AAM best practices there.

Best,
