Deletion implications

Consider this before you delete connections, datasets, or batches in Customer Journey Analytics or Adobe Experience Platform:

When you… This happens…
Delete a connection in Customer Journey Analytics An error message will indicate that:
  • Any data views created for the deleted connection will no longer work.
  • Similarly, any Workspace projects that depend on data views in the deleted connection will cease working.
Delete a dataset in Adobe Experience Platform (AEP) Deleting a dataset in AEP will stop data flow from that dataset to any connections that include that dataset. Any data from that dataset is not automatically deleted from associated CJA Connections.
Delete a dataset in Customer Journey Analytics Currently, you cannot delete a dataset within a connection that has been saved. You would have to delete the whole connection and start over. (However, you can delete a dataset in Adobe Experience Platform.)
Delete a batch from a dataset (in Adobe Experience Platform) If a batch is deleted from an Adobe Experience Platform dataset, the same batch will be removed from any Customer Journey Analytics connections that contain that specific batch. Customer Journey Analytics is notified of batches that were deleted in Adobe Experience Platform.
Delete a batch while it is being ingested into Customer Journey Analytics If there is only one batch in the dataset, no data or partial data from that batch will appear in Customer Journey Analytics. The ingestion will be rolled back. If, for example, there are 5 batches in the dataset and 3 of them have already been ingested when the dataset was deleted, data from those 3 batches will appear in Customer Journey Analytics.
Delete lookup data sets in Adobe Experience Platform While deleting datasets is possible for other source connectors, it is currently not supported for Analytics Classifications Data connector. If you do delete a dataset by mistake, please contact Adobe Customer Care.
