The FTP option provides more flexibility in downloading data sets, including the ability to download data from multiple report suites and to download data set files larger than 50,000 data rows. Before downloading classification data via FTP, create an FTP account.
Consider the following issues when applying data filters:
* to match zero or more characters and a question mark
? to match exactly one character. Use
?* to match one or more characters.
These steps describe how to export (download) classifications from Adobe Analytics using FTP.
|Select Report Suite
|Select the report suite from which you want to export the report data.
|Data Set to be classified
|From the drop-down menu, select the data set that you want to classify.
|Select Number of Rows
|Specify how many rows of data to export.
|Filter by Date Received
|(Optional) Filter data by the date it was received. Specify the date range for which you want to download data.
|Apply Data Filter
|(Optional) Filter the data set by data criteria. You can filter the download to include data rows that include a specific value or data rows with unassigned column (classification) values.
|(Optional) Filter data by campaign data.You can download data only from active campaigns, or select campaigns that begin (or end) in a specific date range.
|Export Numeric 2
|You can import Numeric 2 classifications into the system using the importer. Numeric 2 classifications are useful for variables that change over time for different items, such as cost and budget values for the Marketing Channel report.
|Specify the FTP server information where you want Adobe to download the data file, including host name and port, path to the destination directory, username, and password.
|Specify the email address to receive notifications about this FTP download.
|Select the character encoding for the data file. The default encoding format is either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1, based on the encoding that was uploaded for the classification. UTF-8 to UTF-16 converts your UTF-8 encoded classifications to UTF-16 encoding. ISO-8859-1 to UTF-16 converts your ISO-8859-1 encoded classifications to UTF-16 encoding.
Note: If you select to convert to UTF-16, the source encoding must match the encoding of the original upload or you may get unexpected results. We recommend encoding all uploaded files in UTF-8 without BOM.
