Important notices for Adobe Analytics administrators

Notice Date Added or Updated Description
New domain for system-generated emails July 13, 2022 On May 18, 2022, Adobe changed the sender’s domain for emails from Workspace projects, alerts, and overage alerts, from noreply@omniture.com to noreply@adobe.com. Add this new email to your allow list if your organization allows only specific senders.
Update to new NetAcuity carrier database July 11, 2022 Starting in October, 2022, carrier-related information stored in the carrier field in Adobe Analytics Data Warehouse and Analytics data feeds will change. Historically, the data format in that column has been <domain>:<ISP>. Adobe has maintained an internal lookup table to map these <domain>:<ISP> values into carrier names for reporting purposes in Adobe Analytics reporting tools (Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, reporting API, data warehouse, LiveStream, etc.) The lookup file (carrier.tsv) is also provided with data feeds so that data feeds customers may use the same mappings.

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 <domain>:<ISP>, it will contain a carrier name. Adobe will continue to use the lookup table in order to maintain as much continuity with past reporting as possible. Reporting tools where the lookups are applied by Adobe (Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, reporting API, data warehouse, LiveStream, etc.) will benefit from more accurate mappings. Some mappings – especially for international domains and ISPs – will change more than others when we adopt the new database. The data feeds carrier lookup file (carrier.tsv) will maintain the old mappings and add the new mappings.

The Analytics Source Connector does not currently map the carrier field, so carrier reporting is not currently available in AEP, CJA etc. Therefore, use of the new carrier database will not impact anything in AEP that is based on data provided by the Analytics Source Connector.

Improved IP-to-geolocation mapping July 11, 2022 Our vendor for IP lookups, Digital Element, is upgrading to a new improved dataset (NetAcuity Pulse) for IP-to-geolocation mapping. Adobe Analytics will adopt this new dataset in the October, 2022 timeframe. 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.

Pausing scheduled reports in Reports & Analytics June 8, 2022 On April 21, 2022, we 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 and Analytics, we have 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, we 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, we have 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

SFTP upgrade May 9, 2022 Previously, we had communicated that Adobe would upgrade its Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) services in May 2022 to provide improved security for file transfer. We have postponed this upgrade to the summer of 2022. When this change takes place, certain SFTP client configurations will no longer be 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 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.

Notice Date Added or Updated Description
Older scheduled reports paused March 11, 2022 Effective April 15, 2022, Adobe intends to pause all scheduled reports that have a creation date greater than two years (created before January 31, 2020). No reports or data will be deleted. Only reports identified as older than two years will be paused, and no additional scheduled reports will be sent.
2022 ISO region updates March 11, 2021 Adobe will perform 2022 ISO region updates on June 10, 2022. Expect to see minor updates following this release.
Changing how Analytics handles A4T data collected via Experience Edge February 25, 2022 On March 7th, 2022, we will change how we handle some Target-related data sent to Adobe Analytics via Experience Edge. When using the Adobe Experience Platform Web SDK with Analytics and Target, some personalization events were counted in Adobe Analytics as Page Views. This led to inflated page view counts and additional server calls. With the change, personalization calls with no Analytics content will be disregarded. Personalization calls with A4T data will record the A4T data, but will not be recorded as billable server calls, nor will it impact page views or link event metrics.
Pausing older scheduled Report Builder tasks February 24, 2022 Effective April 15, 2022, Adobe intends to pause all scheduled Report Builder tasks that were created more than two years ago. Specifically, this pause applies to any tasks created before January 31, 2020. No tasks, workbooks or data will be deleted. However, tasks identified as older than two years will be paused, and no additional scheduled tasks will be sent. Learn more

It was offered to provide customers using legacy Adobe Analytics OAuth/JWT credentials additional time to migrate their client integrations to Adobe IMS credentials. This expiration affects (but is not limited to) Adobe Analytics Livestream and Adobe Campaign customers who have not completed their required IMS migrations. Customers who are currently using legacy Analytics OAuth/JWT credentials via the allowlist extension and who do not complete their migration to IMS credentials by May 25, 2022 will lose access to Adobe services.

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.
