Re: Rule executing asynchronously on web page with Adobe... gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Unfortunately, the code snippet in your example will always result in this manner, with the race condition if it's done outside of Launch's rule order controls (for example, if you are doing this within custom code action blocks). In your example, " window._satellite.track('commonsPageLoad'); " gets fully executed, but it is only a direct call that then 'triggers' another, completely separate process. The separate process does not have any relationship or callback to this. The direct call gets a...

Re: Pass Data elements attribute value to evars gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
To answer your question directly: You make a rule, then within the 'actions' of that rule you add an Adobe Analytics 'Set Variables' action. As you customize your 'set Variables' action, you get a nice UI in which you can set an evar or sprop directly to a data-element. You'll need to have rules that set variables, execute the proper beacon send, and then clear out the variables too.One straightforward example is a typical pageload rule. When the page is done loading (let's say 'DOM Ready' in th...

Re: Set Variables Actions - Events should have set/no-set logic gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Both our ideas are the same thing, just in a slightly different way. For your example, I would set event2 equal to a new data-element, then I can use that data element to evaluate eVar5 and return a value (even if that value returned is an empty string, which would sobsequently NOT set the event on the record).This event2 = %DataElement% approach allows you to do a true/false type thing (which your use case describes), as well as set the event to a value if needed. It even handles the simple use...

Re: Custom code in "Set Variable" section executing asynchronously gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
The direct call is made in a synchronous manner - but you can think of all the subsequent activity of the rule running afterwards. The execution of another Rule Trigger is completely external to the initial direct call line, so there's no control on timing there.If you need to control the timing, you do have a few options...Option 1 (do it yourself): create your own callback, promise, or other control alongside your DCR to ensure it does no continue until the timing you desire.Option 2 (let Laun...

Re: Add the ability to revert Extension versions gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
To add on to this; I really wish that every update had some sort of release notes. There have been AA and ECID extension updates with absolutely no release notes. We don't know if there was a fix to an issue, or a change in the way the extension behaves.Even if you hunt for release notes; the Adobe Launch Release Notes pages and the Experience Cloud Release Notes pages do not always give info.

Re: Tracking Count of clicks with Adobe Launch gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Can you share some of the details about how your Rule is setup?For instance:Are you using a single rule with a trigger of the click event -> and then a single action block for AA(Set Variables) ? Do you have additional actions like Send Beacon, Clear Variables, or custom code within that Rule?

Re: Can I switch environments for Launch using the developer console like I did in DTM? gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
I've seen some cases where a Dev environment all of the sudden 'disappears' , resulting in any attempts resulting in 404-errors. If you're using launch command, it's no big deal since you just switch it off - or to a different environment, but if you are using the DTM/Launch Switch you will not be able to switch environments since you cannot get to the menu (i.e. you only get the default chrome extension menu).If you go into Launch and simply rebuild the library, you should be ok.

Re: Add GUI element to add values to Analytics events gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Thanks Stewart,To wrap this up; I tried a few scenarios to see the results on "counter-type custom events". Below is the outline and results.Quick result summary:Yes, if your data element returns '0'; or you place a 0 in the GUI, then the counter event will not be set for the record in the report suite after processing. However, the event and value are still included in the beacon call.Side note: Any other values returned, that I've tried, still result in the custom event being collected as usua...

I agree with this, seeing it a little late. It would also be possible to accomplish this and allow data element logic at the same time.Link to the other thread, could be grouped in with this depending on how they decide to implement it: Set Variables Actions - Events should have set/no-set logic

Re: Allow for "OR" conditions in rules gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Again, this isn't the most flexible optimal solution (meaning it doesn't allow for any combinations of nested AND / OR operators), but could allow most of the functionality within the way Launch operates today. It'd be better than nothing, with less room for error...Using a new feature: "Add condition layer" , you create an alternative condition set that can be evaluated (essentially the OR operator, allowing combined AND operators)Here is a visual on these "condition layers" , showing clearly t...

Re: Send pageview to Adobe analytics (send beacon) delay in rule firing & data discrepancy between Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
If your rule consists of 2 action blocks:Go into the custom code block, copy that code.Then open the Set Variables action block, scroll to the bottom and paste it in the custom code section at the end.Now your custom code will be executed at the end of the Set Variables action, without needing to be written into the DOM first.

Re: evars and props best practices gflare - Adobe Analytics
^this, exactly!From my standpoint of usage, there are only two big roadblocks remaining. These are the last obstacles that stop eVars from completely taking over the world:1. Workspace pathing a. It still uses a querying shortcut, so it doesn't compute correctly when hit based segments are used in workspaces. (this should be known to the product team already, I walked through it with someone back in Q4. But I'd gladly demo it again to help achieve an accurate pathing tool in future versions). b....

Re: What is a simple way to track Page Load Time with Launch? gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
You may not be getting any data collected to your variables because of the timing that data elements are evaluated for SetVars.Based on what you said here:Adobe launch handles Data Elements in a very specific manner when they are referenced in the GUI (like a setVars action block or within the analytics extension 'Global Varables' section). So let's imagine the following scenario: MyPage Rule- Trigger: PageTop- Actions:- - Custom Code Action Block (gets a timestamp value and puts it in the dataL...

Re: Send pageview to Adobe analytics (send beacon) delay in rule firing & data discrepancy between Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Hi Anitha,The delay that you're experiencing is not due to the "Rule Order" (rule order is only effects a process within a single trigger - you are using two different triggers: DOM Ready, and Direct Call('value') ). Instead, the strange delay is actually due to the cascading effect of using a Custom Code Action Block via postscribe to initiate the Direct Call. (in order for the code to execute, it may be further delayed by other things happening in the window (since you doing all this prior to ...

If you go to the "Publishing" section, you can click on a library - and then select "Add a Resource". It's not as fast as the method you described (which is a good idea to implement!), but it is an organized one-stop shop for library management.

Re: Issue with timing, data layer, and setting suites gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
I'm surprised that you haven't gotten an answer on this one yet. Unfortunately, it probably due to the fact that there isn't much you can do in the current scenario. The catch of using information in a data layer, is that the data layer must exist before your code trying to use it. In this scenario, it means your aaData object must be fully defined before the Adobe Launch include.But where there's a will, there's a way:You may be able to take a different approach to this, by thinking about what ...

Re: Action Type: Custom Code creates <script> when triggered gflare - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Hi chuneek49107156,Because this custom code is not embedded in the library itself (i.e. the rule isn't triggered by 'Page Top' or 'Page Bottom'), you are seeing the results of using postscribe to execute the custom code. It's also important to know that this code is executed outside of the timing control of Launch (meaning other Rules and Actions may happen before this postscribed code fully completes, yikes! ).There's no way I could explain it better than Aaronius9er9er9er: So I'd recommend rea...

dataLayers don't have to be confined to the specific purpose of "what the application can expose for you". They can also be created and managed by you as well.For instance, let's say that your organization uses ' window.digitalData ' as a dataLayer that the application will populate for you.You can create your own dataLayer , perhaps ' window.digitalDataLaunch ' , then create your own schema to use within that object. This will enable you to have your own area to store and recall data, without w...

Haven't actually validated that myself, but makes sense in your scenario here.I would recommend using a few different methods to store and retrieve this data that would work with code inside a data element:Using a javascript variable created within the window (I prefer the approach of a single dataLayer for this type of info)Local Storage or Session StorageCookies
