How to integrate login with Analytics in Adobe 6.0


Level 2

Hi all,

I have done a login process in AEM 6.0. Now, I would like to integrate it with Analytics, so when the user is logged in I can check in Analytics the information related to it (name, age, gender...)

I was checking geometrixx example and I saw this:

CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr.loadProfile(u); //where u is the user

I was trying to do something similar in my code but it's not working. I'm getting CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr as null, so I guess this is the problem and "loadProfile" is not being called.

I'm new on this so I'm not sure how this CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr is initialized. I've checked in geometrixx but I wasn't able to find it.

Any idea how and where the CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr should be initialized so I can use it in my code?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Best regards.

Did you read something online that suggested this was the way to proceed with this use case. If so - can you point to that document.

no, I didn't see any documentation. We have tested with geometrixx code and we can see information in analytics related to the user. When we try with our code it's not working so I was checking the geometrixx code to see the difference. I saw in geometrixx code:

CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr.loadProfile(u); //where u is the user

Checking the link https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6/widgets-api/index.html?class=CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr, it's said that loadProfile method is used to "Loads a profile based on the authoriable id of the user", so my understanding was that this is what I need to use to load the profile in analytics and see the user there as it happens in geometrixx.

The problem is that when I try to do that, CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr is null and the user is not loaded. As I mentioned before I'm new on this so I'm not sure how CQ_Analytics.ProfileDataMgr is instanced and why it's working in geometrixx but not in my code.

Any idea?

You mean Adobe Analytics?

In AEM 6.0, Adobe Analytics was still referred to as Adobe SiteCatalyst.

See the 6.0 documentation Integrating with Adobe SiteCatalyst.

Notice that the main prerequisite is a SiteCatalyst (Analytics) Account.
