I have many segments in AAM were built on folder IDs. But for some reasons, I need to delete most of the folders. Really want to know if the traits under my segments will be gone after my deletion of the folders?
I tried to test with one folder trait containing 1 trait (trait A):
- Created a segment that includes the folder trait
- Then moved the Trait A to another folder
- Then tried deleting the folder trait
- I get blocked with the following message
So at this point despite the folder trait no longer having Trait A in its ranks, you are not able to delete it because it is still linked to the segment rule. To get proper result after you have moved your traits to other folders, you would need to either add the specific traits to the segment rule or change the folder trait to the one they have been moved to.
Apologies if this sounds confusing but hopefully it sheds a bit more light on what is or is not possible in this configuration.
