Adobe Campaign


Adobe Campaign is a set of solutions that help you personalize and deliver campaigns across all your online and offline channels. See About Adobe Campaign Classic for more information.

To send segment data to Adobe Campaign, you must first connect the destination in Adobe Experience Platform, and then set up a data import from your storage location into Adobe Campaign.

Export Type

Profile-based - you are exporting all members of a segment, together with the desired schema fields (for example: email address, phone number, last name), as chosen from the select attributes screen of the destination activation workflow.

Connect destination

In Connections > Destinations, select Adobe Campaign, then select Connect destination.

In the Connect destination workflow, select the Connection type for your storage location. For Adobe Campaign, you can select between Amazon S3, SFTP with Password and SFTP with SSH Key. Fill in the information below, depending on your connection type, then select Connect.

Activate segments

See Activate profiles and segments to a destination for information about the segment activation workflow.

Destination attributes

When activating segments to the Adobe Campaign destination, we recommend that you select a unique identifier from your union schema. Select the unique identifier and any other XDM fields that you want to export to the destination. For more information, see Select which schema fields to use as destination attributes in your exported files in email marketing destinations documentation.

Exported data

For Adobe Campaign destinations, Platform creates a tab-delimited .txt or .csv file in the storage location that you provided. For more information about the files, see Email Marketing destinations and Cloud storage destinations in the segment activation tutorial.

Set up data import into Adobe Campaign

  • Please keep in mind the SFTP storage limits, database storage limits, and active profile limits as per your Adobe Campaign contract while performing this integration.
  • You need to schedule, import, and map your exported segment(s) in Adobe Campaign using Campaign workflows. Refer to Setting up a recurring import in Adobe Campaign documentation.

After connecting Platform to your Amazon S3 or SFTP storage, you must set up the data import from your storage location into Adobe Campaign. To learn how to accomplish this, refer to Importing data in the Adobe Campaign documentation.
