Hi all,I was pondering if it was overkill to do the following and wanted to hear thoughts from the community on it.If I set a data element that is specific to a visitor like a visitor ID or functional role that I always want to follow that visitor I have set in adobe launch the store duration to visitor but in adobe analytics I also have the evar for it to never expire. I did this setup to ensure that the visitor always has those visitor specific values attached to them. Is this overkill? I assu...

evars and props best practices

I was just curious if anyone else assigns evars for pageName, domain and other props and on a hit expiration versus visit expiration? and does anyone not even use an evar for props? I know its based on the requirement however, I am trying to put together a list of best practice evars and props you always want to make sure to create regardless of requirements.

I had a question on custom links:I created an event based rule that tracks clicks on certain AEM components we set on the page.When I look at reporting I can use the dimensions I pass in the s.tl() call and use the custom event called component clicks and I can also use visits, unique visitors and people metric. However I cannot use pageviews on an s.tl() call.There is a requirement to show how many pageviews to component clicks (views per click custom metric) happened on a given page. How can I...

DemandBase Extension Question

scottt6073095
- Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Hi All,I added the new DemandBase Extension that recently became available in the Adobe Launch catalog. Per the instructions, you have to send an s.t() pageview beacon to set variables after the demandbase API finishes however I already send a s.t() beacon for my global page load variables. This causes 2 page load server calls to trigger and the evar assigned to demandabase gets triggered on both beacons. How do I suppress the global beacon not to fire my demandbase variable or how do I suppress...

URL Dimension

Does URL get captured as an Out Of The Box dimension when I populate the URL field in DTM Global Variables? If yes, do you know what the OOTB dimension name is as I can't find anything.Also, I was reading this page stumbled upon and realized I could use the OOTB server dimension for my current "domain" dimension I created: server . However, Does the OOTB dimensions work as an evar, prop or both? What are the downsides versus using custom evars / prop dimensions?thanks in advance,Scott

I was able to use the "discovery data layer" extension and create a rule that delayed the global variables from firing for 1000 ms and it worked perfectly and collected all the data from the child object however, i want to make sure there is not a better way to do this.

I just wanted to get clarification that the instructions and what I did are correct for the hitGovernor plug in. Instructions say to add the part (in bold) to the appMeasurement code. I assume I can copy / paste the whole function in the top of the appmeasurement library however as I read into it more it seems that you take the part I highlighted in yellow and add it to an existing s.registerPostTrackCallback function which I found but it had and a. instead?

Hi all,I have one web property that has 3 domains. Each domain has there own first party cookie tracking server (secured and unsecured). I assume I can write an if statement in the custom code area of the adobe analytics tool so that the tracking server will change based on the domain. Does that mean I should leave the tracking server fields under general tab blank? Also, is there another maybe easier way, to get the same result?

Hey, that's exactly the answer I was looking for. I guess it's the little things that you look at when deciding which way to go.So when using a built-in data element then you accept the way the data formatted else use a JavaScript object to modify the value if needed in order to have clean data in your reports.thanks again for all your help.

I was doing some spring cleaning in Adobe Analytics and noticed that we have a lot of dimensions that we are not using or have not used in a long time and also some seem to be redundant. I would like to remove some from the dimension list but wanted to get the opinion of the community before doing so. Do I really need both the evar and prop for site section 2, 3, and 4? I thought eVars can do the same thing as props except pathing but then when I use workspace most of the time I noticed that I c...
