Log in to Adobe Analytics

Before you log in to configure Adobe Analytics reports and match Adobe Analytics report variables to Adobe Dynamic Media Classic events, verify that you are a member of the Web Service Access group in Adobe Analytics. Members in this group can access all reports in the specified report suites by way of the Experience Cloud’s Web Services API regardless of the permissions set in the interface. To add a member to the group, in Adobe Analytics, go to Admin Tools > User Management > Edit Groups.

When you log in, you have the option of entering your Experience Cloud Org ID to use the latest video analytics implementation. If you choose not to enter your ID, video reporting still works. However, it can cause the data to not integrate correctly with other data for that client from outside Adobe Dynamic Media Classic.

NOTE

If your Adobe Analytics account has been migrated to Adobe IMS-based authentication (Identity Management System) for login, entering direct credentials does not work.

Log in to Adobe Analytics from Adobe Dynamic Media Classic

Begin by integrating Dynamic Media Classic with Adobe Analytics OAuth. The Adobe Analytics OAuth integration with Dynamic Media Classic is typically only done once per user.

Configure Adobe Analytics in Adobe Dynamic Media Classic

NOTE

After your initial configuration of Adobe Analytics in Dynamic Media Classic, the only times you must redo the configuration is in the following cases:

  • A new report is added in Analytics and user wants to start sending data to that new report.
  • The Tracking server is updated in Adobe Analytics.
  • A new tracking variable is introduced in a report and you want to link a specific Viewer variable in the Dynamic Media Classic user interface to that new Analytics variable.
  1. Near the upper-right corner of the Adobe Dynamic Media Classic desktop application, go to Setup > Application Setup.

  2. In the left panel, under Application Setup, select Adobe Analytics.

  3. On the Adobe Analytics Configuration page, select Adobe Analytics Login.

  4. In the Adobe Analytics Login dialog box, in the CLIENT ID field and the CLIENT SECRET field, paste the respective values that you copied earlier.

  5. In the lower-right corner of the dialog box, select Login and perform your Adobe IMS (Identity Management Services) login.

    When you successfully log in, the Adobe Analytics Login dialog box appears again along with the COMPANIES drop-down list, initiated by the companies that are available to you.

  6. From the COMPANIES drop-down list, choose a company.

    After you select a company, the SUITES drop-down list, initiated by the Report Suites that are available for the selected company, becomes visible.

  7. From the SUITES drop-down list, choose a report suite.

    NOTE

    By default, the user must be aware of the fact that both COMPANIES and SUITES drop-down lists are empty. As such, the user must select a value from each list.

  8. Select OK so you can save the configuration.

    NOTE

    The Adobe Analytics Server field gets populated with a suggested third-party tracking server that matches your analytics namespace when you select OK. If you use a different tracking server, update it in this field to avoid data loss.

  9. In the lower-left corner of the Adobe Analytics Configuration page, select Save to ensure that your Adobe Analytics account configuration is updated.
