I would like to understand more about the possible segment membership status [Realized, Existing and Exiting]. Once I define the segment definition and run the job for the first time with some profile that meets the segment definition, Is it Realized the first possible Status? or we have a default status before running the job?
There is no BREAKDOWN status for a segment before first job run. BREAKDOWN status starts appearing and changing after each segment job execution. Please find the details of different classifications of BREAKDOWN status below,
existing: The profile was already part of the segment prior to the job request, and continues to maintain its membership to a segment definition.
realized: The profile is entering for the first time and meeting the segment definition as part of the current job request.
exited: The profile was already part of the segment prior to the job request and exiting the segment as part of the current job request.
Hope this helps.
