Re: Triggering Rules with a CustomEvent jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
As an update, I put a breakpoint inside the core launch code (customEvent.js section), and the listener does get executed and the evaluateListener function is called, but my rule is never executed.

Triggering Rules with a CustomEvent jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Has anyone been able to get this to work? I have code that is firing an event and a rule set up with a CustomEvent trigger listening to it. I have tired all sorts of different combinations with no luck. I wrote a listener by hand and it is getting invoked, so I know the event is being fired.I could never get this to work the way I thought it should in DTM, either, so maybe Adobe and I have different ideas on how to handle events...Anyone have an example or some tips?

Re: Providing Global Functions in an Extension jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Quick update. I wrote an extension that has an action that will create a window-level object that has the various utility functions. Seems to work OK (VERY limited testing) - I was able to execute commands from the console. The only downside is you have to run the action in, say, a page load rule to make them available. Is there a place to put code in an extension that runs regardless of whether or not an action is called?

Providing Global Functions in an Extension jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
I know Extensions have shared modules where they can be shared with other extension code. Can the same structure be used in a piece of custom javascript code deployed as an Action?We have been developing a set of utilities (similar to what we did in DTM) that we are calling "Useful Things Adobe Should Have Cooked Into Launch" (granted, it needs a less unwieldy name!). We can load in in custom JS and make the functions available at the window level, but if we could cook it all into an Extension i...

Re: Ecommerce Tracking jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Oh - much pain, my friend. The format of the products string is an absolute nightmare.Worst case, they could make it possible to set the value in the action configuration and then we could do the heavy lifting from a data element definition. A "format product string" action would be better, but making that general purpose and configurable might pose a challenge.

Enhance Library Definitions with Comments jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We LOVE the idea of libraries. The ability to create one, add related rules to it and then promote them as a group is a big plus for Launch.I envision creating libraries named after the JIRA story that requests the work. Again, a huge step in being able to track requirements through implementation.It would be great if there was a comment field available at the library level similar to what we have for rules. That way, more detailed information about what is in the library can be added. Something...

Alternatively, talk to the people over in Analytics and ask that the way we communicate products be made less cryptic!

Tag Fire Count jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
One of the challenges we face in DTM is knowing when a tag is no longer firing. This can mean that it is now safe to remove the rule or that there is a problem because the tag really should be firing. We have to visit the impacted pages and see if all of our tags are firing. This is is particularly troublesome in places like our order confirmation page, where you actually have to make a purchase to get there.It would be a huge help - especially in our media tag deployments - if Launch would prov...

DTM Staging Build Not Picking Up Rule Changes jimbSprint - Dynamic Tag Management
A couple of us are working on developing rules changes in different DTM properties, and both are seeing the build date get updated when we reload our pages, but not all rule changes are being included. We use Akamai for our DTM files.I have had this happen with both Direct Call and Page Load rules. Sometimes I can make a minor edit and get the build to pick it up, but that does not always work.We are at a standstill.

Re: Code Checking in Code Editor jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
We wrote a Chrome plugin to do better syntax and code checking in DTM. I was hoping to retire it with launch, but the current editor needs a lot of improvement, most notably Sarah's request to do syntax checking at the very least.Also, those of us who have obtained a certain level of maturity would REALLY appreciate the ability to make the font less tiny.

Property Name as a Launch Variable jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
For those of us who manage a lot of different properties (which means development inevitably includes the wrong embed code from time to time), having a built in variable or function to return the property name would be a huge help and, I would think, very easy to implement. Trying to match embed codes against multiple property definitions is a nightmare.In our DTM implementation, I created data elements in each property called "dtmPropertyName" and could always do a getVar() on it to figure out ...

Re: _satellite.browserInfo??? jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
A little of both. I put the browser, os and device type info into my data layer. I use that to decorate some of our API performance logging. I also use it in a couple of DTM rules. It is a handy way to get some basic info without having to parse the userAgent string myself. It won't be killer if it is not available in Launch, but it sure is convenient.And speaking of the new cookie() function - where is the documentation on that? I looked, but no luck.

_satellite.browserInfo??? jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Will the _satellite.browserInfo object be available in Launch? Our current implementation utilizes this information in many places, giving us a common definition for browser, OS, device, etc.

lnk_e (or equivalent) in the Mobile App SDK jimbSprint - Adobe Experience Cloud
I've searched around with no luck, so I am asking here...I am pretty well-versed in the s_code and AppMeasurement,js ways of doing things, but am still new-ish to mobile apps.When a user clicks a link inside our app that takes them to a mobile web page, I would like to record that like a lnk_e would on the web. Is there a way to set the app equivalent of linkType in the trackAction() or trackState() calls?Thanks -Jim

Setting Customer IDs in the Marketing Cloud Visitor ID Service - Does it do anything? jimbSprint - Adobe Analytics
We have been using the MC Visitor ID Service for some time now. When we first hooked it up, the advice given regarding setting customer ids was not to bother because they weren't used for anything at that time. I found this same information on some blogs written by Adobe folks and in talking with our internal Adobe contacts.Is this still the case? It seems that if I associated, say, my customer'd account number with the the call that the service could use that to associate that same user across ...
