Steps to editing existing dataset include files.

You open an existing dataset include file using the Profile Manager in data workbench.

For information about opening and working with the Profile Manager, see the Data Workbench User Guide.

  1. While working in your dataset profile, open the Profile Manager and click Dataset to show the contents of the directory.

    • To open a Log Processing Dataset Include file, click Log Processing to show the contents of the directory.

    • To open a Transformation Dataset Include file, click Transformation to show the contents of the directory.

  2. Right-click the check mark next to the desired dataset include file and click Make Local. A check mark for this file appears in the User column.

  3. Right-click the newly created check mark and click Open > from the workbench. The configuration window appears.

    You can also open a dataset include file from a Transformation Dependency Maps. For information about Transformation Dependency Maps, see Reprocessing and Retransformation.

  4. Edit the parameters in the configuration file as appropriate. See Log Processing Dataset Include Files or Transformation Dataset Include Files for descriptions of the parameters.

    When editing a dataset include file within a data workbench window, you can use shortcut keys for basic editing features, including cut (Ctrl+x ), copy (Ctrl+c) , paste (Ctrl+v ), undo (Ctrl+z ), redo (Ctrl+Shift+z ), select section (click+drag), and select all (Ctrl+a ). In addition, you can use the shortcuts to copy and paste text from one configuration file ( .cfg) to another.

  5. To save your changes, right-click (modified) at the top of the window and click Save.

  6. To make the locally made changes take effect, in the Profile Manager, right-click the check mark for the file in the User column, then click Save to > < profile name>, where profile name is the name of the dataset profile or the inherited profile to which the dataset include file belongs. Reprocessing or retransformation of the data begins after synchronization of the dataset profile.


    Do not save the modified configuration file to any of the internal profiles provided by Adobe, as your changes are overwritten when you install updates to these profiles.
