FridayFinding | 6 | Profiles, Identity UI and Namespace



Hello Finders,

Developing a holistic understanding of customer require relevant digital experience which is impaired due to fragmented customer data making a single customer appears as multiple identities. Platform Experience brings identity service to provide the comprehensive view of customers by stitching identities across devices and systems. Introducing some key terms

Identity: An identity is data that is unique to an entity, typically an individual person.

ECID: Experience Cloud ID (ECID) is a shared identity namespace used across Experience Platform and Adobe Experience Cloud applications.

Namespace: An identity namespace serves to distinguish the context or type of an identity.

Real-time Customer Profile:  It merges data from various enterprise systems to form customer profile in time series events.

Merge policies: These are rules that Platform uses to determine how data would be prioritized and what data would be used to create customer Profile.

Union Schema: Its ability of Platform Experience to unify multiple channel data.

Let’s relate all of them in “what to do”

Configure a dataset for profiles from here

Add real time customer profile from this documentation



When and why

Data being ingested into Experience Platform for use by Real-time Customer Profile must confirm to an Experience Data Model (XDM) schema that is enabled for Profile.


Enable a schema for use in Real-time Customer Profile using the Schema Registry API or the Schema Editor user interface

Golden Nugget from Karan

Once the data has been ingested, ensure the following:

  1. Profile is enabled for the dataset and Schema
  2. Always check if identities are getting linked to the profiles correctly via Identity graph or linked identities when look up the profile in AEP UI.
  3. Once Profile and its linked identities are linked properly, you can expect the right profiles to qualify when segmentation job is run.”
