Experience Data Model overview


Adobe Experience Platform Data Connector is currently in beta, which may be subject to frequent updates without notice. Customers are required to be hosted on Azure (currently in beta for North America only) to access these capabilities. Please reach out to Adobe Customer Care if you would like access.

Experience Data Model (XDM) is a standard set of data schemas into which data might be ingested for use with Adobe Experience Platform solutions and products.

The creation and management of XDM schemas is available with a dedicated API or with the XDM user interface.
