Rule & Data Element Revision Comparison

Avatar

Level 4

18-05-2018

In Adobe DTM, there was a robust system that allowed side-by-side comparison of any pair of revisions of a single rule. I am now deeply missing that functionality in Adobe Launch.

Currently, I am able to easily access a revision of a rule that's in an Upstream library (for example, while I'm developing updates to a rule, I can see the current 'live' version of the rule) - but I have no indication of what changes have been made. Furthermore, I can't find a way to review an older, non-published revision of a rule without creating a new library and specifically adding that old revision (which, in of itself, seems like an issue).

Being able to easily see changes in Events, Conditions, Exceptions, and Actions would be tremendously helpful in diagnosing issues - especially in projects with multiple team members. Ideally, it would be nice to get to a level of detail similar to the current DTM tool that even gives a full DIFF of a custom code block. That said, even just knowing if a condition has been Added, Updated, or Deleted between revisions would at least let me know where to look.

I just saw this and frankly it is useless. Almost all of my rules use custom code and the comparison screen shows my code minified and all on one line.I need it to appear as it does in the code editor.

Hence the partially implemented label, and you're in luck.  I just saw a demo of the custom code expansion.  It's probably a few weeks away from release still, but for your custom code blocks, it expands into a full viewer and shows additions, deletions, and modifications on a line-by-line basis.

Custom code can now be diffed in the Compare View.  There are a few additional things we'll add as time rolls on showing settings in the same view you'd see as you create/edit), but I'm going to mark this one as delivered and we'll handle more enhancements separately.
