Accidently deleted a workspace project? Here's the miracle that can bring it back! - Adobe Analytics 10-06-2022
If a workspace project has been permanently deleted, how can it be possible to bring it back?? The truth is that when you hit 'delete' Adobe doesn't seem to actually delete the workspace project(!) - they just remove all links to the workspace making it impossible to navigate to. So, if you know how to navigate back to the workspace the good news is, it's still sitting there waiting for you. How do I navigate back to the workspace? The URL of workspace projects follow a standard format. While yo...

Single-page Applications & Data Elements with 'Page View' duration - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 13-05-2022
Description -More and more website are being built using Single-Page Application (SPA) architecture. With a SPA website, when a user moves between screens it does not cause a full refresh of the page. This causes Data Elements that have a Storage Duration set to "page view" to live beyond what the user experiences as a page view as these data elements require a full refresh from them to be cleared. Why is this important -Within SPAs, data elements set to "page view" duration can actually live fo...

Woken up at 3am by false hourly alerts? - here's how to get a good nights sleep - Adobe Analytics 06-05-2022
False alerts are bad news. Apart from being very annoying, they can cause you to lose trust in your alerts, leading you to ignore real problems. Out of the box Adobe does not offer a way to turn off hourly alerts overnight. This can lead to false alerts being sent as volumes drop and the data becomes more volatile. However, there is an easy method to disable hourly alerts during specific hours... Imagine a scenario where you wanted to create an alert when 'orders' are below or equal to 1000, but...

Send value truncation on a permanent vacation! - Adobe Analytics 28-04-2022
Variables in Adobe Analytics are limited in length so losing data because we are exceeding these limits is something we all need to keep in mind. This can happen when we combine several values into a variable for future classification and we don't realise that certain combinations create a very long string. Fortunately, there is a simple method to proactively detect when this happens, allowing you to identify and deal with cases where values are being truncated. And the simple method is... ...ad...

Supercharge your Classification Rule Builder in Adobe Analytics! - Adobe Analytics 13-04-2022
A common (and incredibly useful!) technique in Adobe Analytics is to concatenate multiple values into a variable and then use the classification rule builder to split these values back out in to separate classifications. This is fantastic way to save on the number of variables being used as we all know we have a limited number of props and eVars available! What I hope to show you in this blog post is a method to make this process of concatenating and splitting out values more robust and faster t...

introduce "wait then" behaviour between rules to avoid race conditions - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 25-03-2022
Description -At the moment rules are triggered in a sequence determined by the rule order number. However, each rule executes asynchronously meaning that rules with a higher priority may finish after rules with a lower priority. This can cause issues where there is a dependency between rules. Why is this feature important to you -We are experiencing issues where there are dependencies between rules. They are hard to spot because the are intermittent and are difficult to resolve due the the async...

Re: Rule Component Sequencing - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 15-03-2022
@thebenrobb Is there any way to force the rule order to also have the "wait then" behaviour? We often encounter race condition issues between rules that are hard to spot because they are intermittent (and are also hard to resolve without being forced to cram everything into a single rule!) Any help would be appreciated! 🙂

Re: How to hide analytics variables - Adobe Analytics 07-03-2022
You may want to check out virtual report suites (VRS). They provide the ability to curate components (props, eVars, events etc) at the report suite level.

Re: Experience Platform Launch Server Side - Adobe Analytics 28-02-2022
Here's my understanding... If you are planning to use it only with Adobe products such as Adobe Analytics I believe it is free. Although this is free, it is not accessible by default. You have to talk to you Customer Success Manager to get it provisioned to your account before you can start using it. If you want to use it to forward data any where outside of Adobe (e.g. to a third party capability or back into your companies infrastructure) this is not free. You will need additional licensing wh...

Re: add master-child management capabilities to Launch - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 04-02-2022
I really hope Adobe bring this in. We are managing 20+ properties; copying common rules/data elements between them every time we make an update is becoming painful!
