Re: repeating events on direct call after DTM to Launch Migration thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
First of all: Do your rules have a Clear Variables Action (this is needed in Launch compared to DTM)?Second: if yes, what version of the Analytics Extension are you using. There seems to be a bug in AppMeasurement.js 2.11.0 which is part of the Extension since 1.6.0 that sometimes doesn't clear events even when using Clear Variables action: What are possible reasons why ClearVariable fails? If you don't want to clear your variables between these calls, you may have to add custom logic, with code...

Disable Activity Map through config thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
It seems that disabling ClickMap in the Analytics Extension is not enough. You actually have to modify the AppMeasurement.js (which only works if you are not using the CDN): Stopping Activity Map Link TrackingPlease ad an option to really disable it through the UI.Duplicate of: Ability to Turn Off/On ActivityMap Module in Adobe Analytics Extension

Why are clickmap attributes still sent even if it is disabled in launch? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We disabled all the automatic link tracking options in the analytics extension. Though now I found that a link text is still tracked with a "link" parameter even though it is a custom link triggered by a direct call rule. Can this somehow be disabled?

Re: Why do we need some many hashed paths for the AppMeasurement.js thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
In AEM the only ZIP files that can be uploaded and unzipped automatically are so called content packages with a defined structure, I created an idea a while ago that they should provide an option to generate such an AEM compatible ZIP; it is the same company after all...The top level path is ok that is working as expected, but is also a bit limitted as it is the path you define from where the script is loaded, but in AEM this is not the same as where the script is stored in JCR.

Re: Does Launch automatically handle linkTrackVars & linkTrackEvents? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
If you are using the Set Variables Action from the Analytics Extension and only use the UI elements to set your eVars, props and events, then you don't have to care about linkTrackVars and linkTrackEvents. But if you are using custom code then you also have to take care that you populate them in the custom code.

Why do we need some many hashed paths for the AppMeasurement.js thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Due to legal reasons we cannot use the CDN to get our launch scripts. So we download the generated files with the archive option in the environment. This was always a bit cumbersome because the top level paths always changed with each build and the inner path with each version of the AnalyticsExtension.So we had something like this:/BLe4b698d19ee94cf8b785407ccb4b97b1/hostedLibFiles/EP23d75a37c9fa4adb8bac5e48782e354a/AppMeasurement.jsToday I'v built the library again for dev using the latest exte...

@allPlease provide support with reproducible cases. Our test environments aren't accessible from outside, so they struggle with my ticket. But if you guys have accessible test environments where support can try to reproduce the issue, it would help them fix it.

Re: Change "Submit for Approval" option based on eligibility/state thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Good idea but I would have the action differently or at least additional: "Submit for Approval and Build for Staging". In my company no one will approve the rules in launch. They get approved indirectly while testing on the Staging environment.

Re: Subresource Integrity thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We also have some restrictions regarding external sources on our websites. But on our side the rule was to not use any CDN at all. So we using the option to download the launch scripts and host them on our own server. So we can be sure the code is as we built it with Launch.

Re: What are possible reasons why ClearVariable fails? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
I did some further testing and as we are hosting the scripts ourselfs, I was able to use the old AppMeasurement.js on our test environment. There I don't have the problem. So I can at least confirm that AppMeasurement 2.11.0 introduced a bug which wasn't there in 2.10.0So for all others I recommend not to upgrade your Analytics Extension to 1.16.0 which includes AppMeasurement 2.11.0

Re: What are possible reasons why ClearVariable fails? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
I only use the basic extensions for Analytics: Core, Context Hub, Experience Cloud ID Service, Analytics Extension.Most Set Variables actions use custom code, but I don't see what could be an issue with that. This used to work until recently, so my guess is Analytics Extension 1.6 or AppMeasurement 2.11 respectively introduced a bug with s.t() so the variables aren't properly cleared. They still get cleared with s.tl() calls.I also opened a ticket with support for this as we are nearing our next...

I wanted to try to reproduce my problem with 1.5.1 but when I select a previous revision where the 1.5.1 version was used, it does not allow me to and displays a message stating that I can only use revisions which use the latest installed version of it.

What are possible reasons why ClearVariable fails? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We are currently mainly using direct call rules for our tracking. Even the page view itself is a direct call rule, as we had the pageBottom fire when it shouldn't (SPA not finished initializing). All our rules follow the same pattern in the action section: 1-n Set Variables, Send Beacon, Clear Variables.One of these Set Variables actions is responsible to set s.products and s.events only on product detail pages, to track its view (prodView and a custom event). I now have the strange behaviour th...

Re: [Adobe Analytics] Cannot set variables, cannot send beacon, cannot clear variables thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Seems that you are missing the AppMeasurement.js library. Are you sure it is loaded correctly? Do you include your scripts async, maybe your rule is fired before the AppMeasurement is available.

Are you using a ContextHub Data Element to read out this property? AFAIK these only get initialized when the script loads.When and how are you sending the beacon? One option would be to use a direct call rule and provide the values as a payload:_satellite.track('load-time', {loadStart: launchDataLayer.pageLoadStart, loadEnd: launchDataLayer.pageLoadEnd, loadTime: launchDataLayer.pageLoadTime})and then in the custom code Set Variables action of your rule you have this object available as event.de...

Re: Revision compare now in Launch! thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
That is one feature I was waiting for, thanks! Need to get used on how it works, but the first impression is good. One usability issue though (Only with Firefox, works ok in Chrome):If I do a code compare and a line of code is longer than what the side by side comparision can handle, there is a horizontal scrollbar and even if there are only a few lines of code also a vertical one. When I try to use the horizontal, the vertical moves as well and the horizontal jumps back to left.

Re: Clear Variable for lnk_e and lnk_d thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
No answer to this after almost 2 months, so I assume I have to find another solution, like clearing stuff myself in the doPlugins. So I need to find out if this method gets executed before or after my Set Variables actions within the rules.

Re: How do I create a cart open event in Launch thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
This looks like the Analytics extension itself. Here you don't have events. You need to create a Rule in the rule tab, and use Actions there. I don't have time now to search for the tutorial video, but there is one where each step is explained.

Clear Variable for lnk_e and lnk_d thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We configured the Analytics Extension to automatically track exit and download links for certain domains and extensions respectively. There is also a doPlugins which adds some events and eVars to these with something like this:if (s.linkType === 'd') { // set some eVars and events} else if (s.linkType === 'e') { // set some other eVars and events}This works fine, but as this isn't a rule where I have full control over the actions, events and evars set here, are repeated with the next rule that i...

Re: Noob question: How do I create a rule from a date element to map that element to a prop/evar/event? thomas_amsler - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Can't use screenshots, but I'll try to explain with text only.The data elements are completely independent from rules. So you could use the same data element in multiple rules and assign it to different eVars or props in these rules.To use the data element, you need to have a rule and then in the action section add an Action with the Analytics Extension and select the Set Variables. There you have the eVars, props and events where you can select your prop55 from the dropdown and next to the valu...
