The Analytics admin tools area is the main area for managing your Adobe Analytics instance; this is where most administrative tasks can be done. The other area for Analytics administration, the Adobe admin console, is for provisioning users and setting permissions.
Following is a breakdown of these two areas:
Analytics admin tools
Use the Analytics admin tools area for all Adobe Analytics administration tasks (besides user provisioning and permissions management). Examples of common administrative tasks include: creating and managing report suites; importing external data sources; excluding data from specific IP addresses; and so forth.
See the content hierarchy on the left side of the page to jump to any administrative task available in Adobe Analytics.
Adobe admin console
Use this tool to provision users and modify access permissions.
For all organizations that are migrated to Adobe IMS, these tasks are performed in the Adobe admin console. For more information, see the Adobe Analytics first admin guide. If your organization is not yet migrated to Adobe IMS, see Analytics User Migration to the Adobe Admin Console.
