Use AAM with Custom Side Site Tool

I came across this video on adobe Help https://helpx.adobe.com/audience-manager/how-to/apply-aam-with-custom-site-side-use-tool.html

It contains method to retrieve segment from DCS using API call from the browser. The API call it is suggesting is as follows:

https://<partner-subdomain>.demdex.net/event?d_stuff=1d_dst=1&d_rtbd=json&d_cb=json[callback-functio...

I could not find any documentation online that explains this integration except in the video listed above. I tried searching for d_stuff parameter in the API documentation but could find anything. Does anyone know about this integration method or if it has been deprecated or something?

Hi @yatins78957443 ,

 

The 'stuff' object contains all the cookie names (cn) and cookie values (cv | segments) from the segments mapped to cookie destinations within your AAM instance. The segments returned will be the segments the device has qualified to.

If you're looking to get traits and segments returned that the device qualified to, you can use the d_cts flag. This is not enabled by default, and you'll need to reach out to your Adobe CSM, consultant, or support to have this enabled.

 

Keep in mind when using d_cts that the traits and segments returned are those only on the regional Edge server on the Profile Cache Server (PCS). You'll need to wait ~12-24 hours for data in other regions or from the back-end Hbase to sync to the active PCS.

 

Regards,

Shane

Hello @snielson,

 

Thanks for responding. But I think you didn't quite get my question. I was asking about the exact URL syntax mentioned in the video. 

https://<partner-subdomain>.demdex.net/event?d_stuff=1&dst=1&d_rtbd=json&d_cb=json[callback-function...

 

Now I'm assuming the d_stuff=1 parameter in the URL call would return the stuff object in the response that contains the cookie value, name , expiry etc. But my question was where exactly is the documentation for this d_stuff parameter. I could not find it anywhere in the API or DCS event calls documentation online.

@snielson: Thanks for your response. I understand the 'stuff' response object you have explained above but I think you didn't quite get my question. I'm actually asking about a specific DCS API call which is:

https://<partner-subdomain>.demdex.net/event?d_stuff=1d_dst=1&d_rtbd=json&d_cb=json[callback-function]

 

This is the API call described in the video here: https://helpx.adobe.com/audience-manager/how-to/apply-aam-with-custom-site-side-use-tool.html

I'm assuming that the d_stuff=1 parameter in the API call enables the stuff object in response. But my question is, where exactly is the documentation for this d_stuff parameter in the DCS API call. I couldn't find it anywhere online except it being referred in the video.

It would be great if you can shed some light on the d_stuff parameter (not 'stuff' object in general) and more importantly any documentation that talks about this d_stuff parameter.

Thanks
