Under targeting activities and exclusions, does anyone know the differences between the three types of Exclusion Types > Change dimensions:

1.) Change axis

2.) Identifier

3.) Joins

In what situation would change axis, identifier or joins can be used?

Thanks.

What you have there is correct. Your exclusion set may have different id's than the primary set- to match your intent you should be joining on the email cols here.

Hi,

You're defining how 2 different schemas connect to each other:

  1. Change axis: A relationship already defined in the selected exclusion set
  2. Identifier: A field in the selected exclusion set
  3. Joins: What everyone uses, choose one col from each side to map to the other

Thanks,

Hi Jon (or anyone else reading this),

Thanks.

But just to be specific to the problem I've encountered, see screenshot below.

As per the Adobe documentation on this -> https://docs.campaign.adobe.com/doc/AC/en/WKF_Repository_of_activities_Targeting_activities.html#Int...

Example: Exclude a list of send addresses

I should have used "Joins" instead of "Identifier".

The question I have been asked now is, if it's a suppression list, should it be "Joins" instead of "Identifier". Can an "identifier" be used for a list rather than a DB query?
