Important notices for Adobe Analytics administrators

Notice Date Added or Updated Description
Full IP obfuscation for Adobe Experience Edge hits September 27, 2023 IP obfuscation for hits coming from Experience Edge will be updated later in October of 2023. In April, Experience Edge added the ability to obfuscate IP addresses. At that time, Adobe Analytics only supported partial obfuscation of IPs, due to the way Analytics processes hits from Experience Edge. When customers chose full obfuscation for Experience Edge, Analytics only received partially obfuscated IPs. When this change is implemented, Analytics will receive the fully obfuscated IP.
Adobe Analytics Livestream - Analytics 2.0 APIs September 27, 2023 Customers can now access the Endpoint guide for Adobe Analytics Livestream under the Adobe Analytics 2.0 APIs instead in its previous location, with the 1.4 APIs. Note that customers using Adobe I/O JWT credentials must migrate to Adobe I/O OAuth Server-to-Server credentials by January 1, 2025. (See details under EOL notices below.)

Migration to Adobe I/O OAuth Server-to-Server credentials May 11, 2023 Adobe Analytics API and Livestream customers using Adobe I/O JWT credentials must migrate to Adobe I/O OAuth Server-to-Server credentials by January 1, 2025. Adobe I/O will not allow new JWT credentials to be created beginning May 1, 2024.

Customers must also update their client applications to use the new OAuth Server-to-Server credentials.
EOL for Reports & Analytics March 7, 2023 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.

On December 31, 2023, we will terminate many of the associated Reports & Analytics features, including, but not limited to: Scheduled Reports, Data Extracts, and DL Reports. After Dec 31, 2023, any scheduled reports will no longer be sent. In April 2023, any reports that were scheduled to expire beyond Dec 31, 2023, were automatically updated and reverted to expire on Dec 31, 2023. In addition, you can no longer schedule future reports beyond December 31, 2023.

EOL of Publishing Lists feature September 29, 2022 As part of the EOL of Reports & Analytics, Publishing Lists are slated to reach end-of-life in December 2023. You will not be able to create new or access existing Publishing Lists to send or schedule Analysis Workspace projects.

37-month expiration of Purchase IDs and Event IDs (event serialization) July 10,2023 The latest release of the Analytics Hit processing engine, released on July 13, 2023, started enforcing a 37-month expiration of Purchase IDs and Event IDs (event serialization).

37-month expiration of Purchase IDs and Event IDs (event serialization) July 10,2023 An upcoming release of the Analytics Hit processing engine, targeted for release on July 13, 2023, will start enforcing a 37-month expiration of Purchase IDs and Event IDs (event serialization). Currently, Purchase IDs and Event IDs never expire in Adobe Analytics. Once a Purchase ID or Event ID is seen/used, then any future hit, no matter when, will have that purchase or event marked as a duplicate. With the new processing engine release:
  • Purchase IDs and Event IDs always expire after 37 months.
  • If it has been 37 months since the Purchase ID or Event ID was seen, it is no longer considered a duplicate purchase or event.
  • If you are “reusing” Purchase IDs or Event IDs from more than 37 months ago, they are no longer considered duplicates.

Row/column filtering for Analytics Source Connector streaming The Analytics Source Connector in Adobe Experience Platform now allows for filtering of Analytics data which is used to populate profiles in Real-Time Customer Profile. Row-level filtering helps reduce the number of events associated with profiles. Column-level filtering helps reduce the richness of the events themselves, thus enabling you to optimize the use of profile entitlements.

Automatic migration to Classification set architecture February 8, 2023 Over the next several months, Adobe plans to migrate all classifications across all organizations to the latest classification architecture. The last customers to migrate is estimated to happen in May 2023. No customer action is required, and no down time is expected. This new architecture has many benefits, including:Note the following changes that can potentially impact your organization’s workflow:
  • When using the browser or FTP import, ‘Overwrite on conflict’ is always enabled.
  • When using the browser or FTP import, the option to export immediately after import is no longer supported.
  • The Analytics 2.0 API GetDimensions endpoint now returns string identifiers for classifications instead of numeric identifiers. Numeric identifiers can still be used, but Adobe recommends using the new string identifiers where possible. Numeric identifiers can be retrieved by using the ?expansion=hidden query string parameter.

Important notices for Adobe Analytics administrators

Notice Date Added or Updated Description
Device lookup process update March 2, 2023 As part of the support rollout for client hints, Adobe now partners with DeviceAtlas for all device lookups. Previously, the partnership with DeviceAtlas only included mobile device lookups. As part of that rollout, some desktop operating systems were incorrectly labelled with the text "mobile". For example, a dimension item shows "Mobile OS X 10.15.7" instead of "OS X 10.15.7 ". Adobe plans to correct these names in the April release. Analytics and Customer Journey Analytics reporting are updated retroactively. For Data Feeds, the change is retroactive if you store and use the operating system ID referenced in the lookup. However, if you perform the lookup and store the actual operating system value in your data, the change is not retroactive.
Change to granularity of operating system March 2, 2023 The operating system patch version is now included in the Operating system dimension. For example, a user with OS X 10.15.7 formerly appeared as "OS X 10.15", but now appears as "OS X 10.15.7".
Update to device lookups due to Google Client Hints February 27, 2023 The use of client hints, planned for February 16, 2023, was postponed in order to better ensure the quality of device lookups using hints.

Automatic migration to Classification set architecture February 8, 2023 Over the next several months, Adobe plans to migrate all classifications across all organizations to the latest classification architecture. The last customers to migrate is estimated to happen in May 2023. No customer action is required, and no down time is expected. This new architecture has many benefits, including:Note the following changes that can potentially impact your organization’s workflow:
  • When using the browser or FTP import, ‘Overwrite on conflict’ is always enabled.
  • When using the browser or FTP import, the option to export immediately after import is no longer supported.
  • The Analytics 2.0 API GetDimensions endpoint now returns string identifiers for classifications instead of numeric identifiers. Numeric identifiers can still be used, but Adobe recommends using the new string identifiers where possible. Numeric identifiers can be retrieved by using the ?expansion=hidden query string parameter.

EOL for Reports & Analytics March 7, 2023 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.

On December 31, 2023, we will terminate many of the associated Reports & Analytics features, including, but not limited to: Scheduled Reports, Data Extracts, and DL Reports. After Dec 31, 2023, any scheduled reports will no longer be sent. In April 2023, any reports that were scheduled to expire beyond Dec 31, 2023, will automatically be updated and reverted to expire on Dec 31, 2023. In addition, you can no longer schedule future reports beyond December 31, 2023.

EOL of the Device Co-op People metric March 9, 2023 With the deprecation of the Device Co-op, the Device Co-op-related People metric is no longer relevant. On May 8, 2023, we will remove the People metric. At that point, we will redirect its data to the Unique Visitor metric to prevent projects, segments and calculated metrics from breaking.

Note: The People metric tied to Cross-Device Analytics is not affected by this announcement.

Important notices for Adobe Analytics administrators

Notice Date Added or Updated Description
Update to device lookups due to Google Client Hints January 25, 2023 The use of client hints in device lookup will start on February 16, 2023.

As of October 2022, it is possible to collect client hints with either the Web SDK or AppMeasurement JavaScript libraries. But client hints will not be incorporated into device lookup until February 2023. At that time, 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.

As part of this change, Adobe will use Device Atlas for all device lookups related to User-Agent. Learn more

Updated naming conventions for the Browsers dimension January 17, 2023 Starting with version 110 for Chrome, Edge and Firefox browsers, the company name no longer appears before the browser. This could impact reports if you have segment definitions based on the name of he browser. For example, a segment including a definition that "browser contains “Google” no longer identifies Chrome browsers starting with version 110. In addition, starting with Chrome 110, both mobile and non-mobile versions of Chrome are labeled the same. Previously, mobile and non-mobile versions were separately labeled. You can use use mobile segmentation and breakdowns to compare mobile to non-mobile traffic.
Pausing scheduled reports in Reports & Analytics January 6, 2023 This is a reminder that Adobe will deprecate these features on 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.

Pausing scheduled tasks in Report Builder January 6, 2023 On January 31, 2023, Adobe will roll out changes to scheduled tasks in Report Builder as part of our performance and delivery optimization efforts. These changes include removing the ability to have scheduled deliveries “end after x occurrences.”

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

Improved IP-to-geolocation mapping January 4, 2023 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 adopts this new dataset on January 11, 2023. The new database is more accurate than previous versions. Some IP-to-geo mappings change/improve when the new database is adopted.

All Adobe Analytics tools (Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, Reporting API, Data Warehouse, LiveStream, Analytics Data Feeds, and so on) automatically take advantage of the new improved mappings. There is no change in the format of the data in data feeds. Customer Journey Analytics data provided through the Analytics Source Connector automatically takes advantage of the new mappings.

Update to new NetAcuity carrier database January 4, 2023 This update, originally planned for on October 5, 2022, is now slated for January 11, 2023. 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 you can 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 changes going forward. Instead of <domain>:<ISP>, it contains a carrier name. Adobe continues 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.) benefits from more accurate mappings. Some mappings – especially for international domains and ISPs – changes more than others when Adobe adopts the new database. The data feeds carrier lookup file (carrier.tsv) maintains the old mappings and adds the new mappings.

The Analytics Source Connector does not currently map the carrier field, so carrier reporting is not currently available in Experience Platform, Customer Journey Analytics, and so on. Therefore, use of the new carrier database does not impact anything in Experience Platform that is based on data provided by the Analytics Source Connector.

Updated guidelines for traffic spike notifications November 18, 2022 Former guidelines were based strictly on hit volumes. The new guidelines are based on a combination of report suite size and percent increase.
