CJA: How to Automatically Update Schema Field Descriptions in Existing Data Views in CJA?


Level 1

Hi Community,


I've completed the setup of Adobe Experience Platform (AEP) with schema, data sets, data streams, and web SDK, and our data is successfully flowing into AEP. We are using Customer Journey Analytics (CJA) for our analytics needs.

Recently, we realized that many fields in our schema did not have descriptions, and this lack of descriptions is reflected in our data views and reports. I understand that the descriptions in schema fields are passed on to data view components and are visible in Workspace as well.

However, I've noticed that when we add missing descriptions to the schema fields, these updates are not automatically reflected in the existing components in our data views. The only way I've found to see the updated descriptions is by removing the component from the data view and then re-including it, which updates the description instantly.

Given the large number of components in our data views, we want to avoid manually reconfiguring everything.

Here are my questions:

  1. Is this behavior a known bug in Adobe CJA? If so, is there an ETA for a fix?
  2. If this is not a bug, is there a scalable solution or workaround to ensure that schema field descriptions are updated in existing data view components without manual intervention?

For reference, I waited 48 hours after updating the schema field descriptions, but the changes were not reflected in the already included components. However, the descriptions updated instantly when I searched for the components and re-included them.

Any advice or insights would be greatly appreciated!

This might be something to bring up with Customer Care, because it sounds like a bug in CJA.
