|Anomaly detection auto-run conditions||September 29, 2022||Today, Anomaly detection auto-runs on all columns of time-series freeform tables. To ensure data is available for analysis and projects load faster, Adobe will change how Anomaly detection auto-runs.

|Update to new NetAcuity carrier database||September 26, 2022||This update, originally planned for on October 5, 2022, has been postponed to January, 2023. Carrier-related information stored in the
This update enhances our carrier mappings by using a more accurate carrier database from NetAcuity. The format of the data in the carrier column in Data Feeds will change going forward. Instead of
The Analytics Source Connector does not currently map the carrier field, so carrier reporting is not currently available in Experience Platform, CJA etc. Therefore, use of the new carrier database will not impact anything in Experience Platform that is based on data provided by the Analytics Source Connector.
|Improved IP-to-geolocation mapping||September 26, 2022||Our vendor for IP lookups, Digital Element, is upgrading to a new improved dataset (NetAcuity Pulse) for IP-to-geolocation mapping. Originally planned for October 2022, Adobe Analytics will adopt this new dataset in January, 2023. The new database will be more accurate than previous versions. Some IP-to-geo mappings will change/improve when the new database is adopted.
All Adobe Analytics tools (Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, reporting API, data warehouse, LiveStream, data feeds etc.) will automatically take advantage of the new improved mappings. There will be no change in the format of the data in data feeds. CJA data provided through the Analytics Source Connector will also automatically take advantage of the new mappings.
|SFTP upgrade||September 19, 2022||Previously, Adobe had communicated that Adobe would upgrade its Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) services in September 2022 to provide improved security for file transfer. Adobe performed this upgrade on September 20, 2022. When this change took place, certain SFTP client configurations were no longer supported. This impacts only data sent to or retrieved from Adobe Analytics using SFTP. The FTP protocol is not impacted. In order to avoid service disruptions, please ensure that your SFTP clients (code, tools, services) are in accordance with the changes detailed here.|
|EOL for Data Workbench||September 14, 2022||Adobe intends to end-of-life Data Workbench effective December 31, 2023. Please contact your Customer Care representative for alternative solutions to Data Workbench of if you have any questions.|
|Update to device lookups due to Google Client Hints||August 19, 2022||Starting on October 26, 2022, Adobe will begin using client hints in addition to the User-Agent when deriving certain device information for hits coming from Chromium browsers, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. This is in response to Google’s plan to gradually reduce the information presented from the User-Agent string in lieu of data passed via client hints. Read more about client hints here.
By October, both the AppMeasurement and Web SDK collection libraries will support collection of client hints and configuring whether to high-entropy client hints are collected. As part of this change, Adobe will use Device Atlas for all device lookups related to User-Agent. Currently, Device Atlas is used only for mobile hits. These updates may result in small changes to device information historically derived from User-Agent - specifically Browser, Browser Type, Operating System, Operating System Type, and Mobile Device.

|Pausing scheduled reports in Reports & Analytics||June 8, 2022||On April 21, 2022, Adobe announced the deprecation of several features specific to scheduled reports in preparation for the previously announced end of life for Reports & Analytics. These features included the ability to schedule new reports as well as new data extracts.
In response to customer requests seeking an extension and to ease the transition from Reports & Analytics, Adobe has decided to extend access to these features until Jan 31, 2023. Please note that expiration windows for both reports and data extracts will continue to be limited to nine months; report and data extract delivery will pause at the end of this period unless the schedule is reactivated.
To reiterate, these features will be deprecated on January 31, 2023. Before this date, you must migrate your scheduled reporting to one of the other mechanisms available to you in Adobe Analytics. For additional questions or support, please reach out to Adobe Customer Care. Learn more
|Pausing scheduled tasks in Report Builder||June 8, 2022||On April 21, 2022, Adobe rolled out changes to scheduled tasks in Report Builder as part of our performance and delivery optimization efforts. These changes included removing the ability to have scheduled deliveries “end after x occurrences.” In response to several customer requests seeking more time to explore and implement alternatives, Adobe has decided to restore this option in a limited fashion until Jan 31, 2023.
You can continue to schedule hourly Report Builder tasks and have them end after a maximum of 99 occurrences. Please note that the rollback only applies to hourly tasks; the “end after x occurrences” will remain unavailable for all other delivery intervals (daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly). Please note that this option will be deprecated on January 31, 2023. For more questions or support, please reach out to Adobe Customer Care. Learn more
|EOL for Reports & Analytics||January 4, 2022||Effective December 31, 2023, Adobe intends to discontinue Reports & Analytics and its accompanying reports and features. The reports, visualizations, and underlying technology that power Reports & Analytics no longer meet Adobe’s technology standards. Most Reports & Analytics features are available in Analysis Workspace. Since the release of Analysis Workspace in 2015, Reports & Analytics functionality and capabilities have been moved to Analysis Workspace and a threshold of workflow parity has been reached. This notice explains the end-of-life process.|
