Frequently asked questions for using classifications.
Classification files uploaded with either a key value or classification value of zero (
0) results in an error. It includes all values that only contain zeroes (
000, and so on). There are several methods to resolve this issue:
Implement alternative values: Using a text value other than
"0" is the best and easiest way to resolve this issue. For example, change
s.campaign = "0"; in your implementation to
s.campaign = "Zero";.
Use processing rules: You can modify dimension items between data collection and their storage in a report suite. Create the following processing rule:
If [dimension] equals
0, overwrite value of [dimension] with custom value
Request a VISTA rule: An Engineering Services consultant sets up a server-side rule for you at an extra cost. Contact your organization’s Account Manager to request a VISTA rule.
Yes, however doing so counts each dimension item as a billable server call.
Using leading and trailing blank spaces in either classification data and hit data is not supported because Adobe Analytics will truncate the blank characters from these data.
Using special characters such as commas or double quotes in reporting is typically not recommended. However, in some cases their use is necessary. If your reporting values contain such characters that you choose to classify, use the following steps:
v:2.0. Change the value to
v:2.1and apply the desired classifications to the workbook.
Numeric 2 classifications let you classify dimension items as time-based metrics. They were retired from the Adobe Analytics UI in July 2019.
