Get Started with Federated Data Access

Adobe Campaign provides the Federated Data Access (FDA) option in order to process information stored in one or more external databases: you can access external data without changing the structure of Adobe Campaign data.

Prerequisites

The FDA option allows you to extend your data model in a third-party database. It will automatically detect the structure of the targeted tables and use data from the SQL sources.

In order to use this capability, prerequisites are listed below:

  • Configuration: except for Snowflake, you need an on-premise or hybrid hosting model to set up Federated Data Access. Learn more
  • External database version: you need to have an external database that is compatible with the Adobe Campaign FDA module. The list of database systems and compatible versions is detailed in Campaign Compatibility matrix.
  • Permissions: users must also have the necessary permissions in Adobe Campaign and on the external database.
