Data Landing Zone

Data Landing Zone is an Azure Blob storage interface provisioned by Adobe Experience Platform, granting you to access a secure, cloud-based file storage facility to bring files into Platform. You have access to one Data Landing Zone container per sandbox, and the total data volume across all containers is limited to the total data provided with your Platform Products and Services license. All customers of Platform and its application services such as Customer Journey Analytics, Journey Orchestration, Intelligent Services, and Real-time Customer Data Platform are provisioned with one Data Landing Zone container per sandbox. You can read and write file(s) to your container through Azure Storage Explorer or your command-line interface.

Data Landing Zone supports SAS-based authentication and its data is protected with standard Azure Blob storage security mechanisms at rest and in transit. SAS-based authentication allows you to securely access your Data Landing Zone container through a public internet connection. There are no network changes required for you to access your Data Landing Zone container, which means you do not need to configure any allow lists or cross-region setups for your network. Platform enforces a strict seven-day time-to-live (TTL) on all files uploaded to a Data Landing Zone container. All files are deleted after seven days.

Naming constraints for files and directories

The following is a list of constraints that you must account for when naming your cloud storage files or directories.

  • Directory and file component names cannot exceed 255 characters.
  • Directory and file names cannot end with a forward slash (/). If provided, it will be automatically removed.
  • The following reserved URL characters must be properly escaped: ! ' ( ) ; @ & = + $ , % # [ ]
  • The following characters are not allowed: " \ / : | < > * ?.
  • Illegal URL path characters not allowed. Code points like \uE000, while valid in NTFS filenames, are not valid Unicode characters. In addition, some ASCII or Unicode characters, like control characters (such as 0x00 to 0x1F, \u0081, and so on), are also not allowed. For rules governing Unicode strings in HTTP/1.1 see RFC 2616, Section 2.2: Basic Rules and RFC 3987.
  • The following file names are not allowed: LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, PRN, AUX, NUL, CON, CLOCK$, dot character (.), and two dot characters (…).
