Document your source

The final step before your new source can be set live in Adobe Experience Platform is to document your new source.

This documentation guide includes:


The following items are required before you can start documenting your new source:

  • A valid GitHub user account: If you do not have an existing GitHub account, then you must create one through the GitHub sign up page;
  • Access to GitHub Desktop: You must use the GitHub Desktop app in order to create your source documentation in your local environment;
  • Your integration with Adobe must be in a testing phase with your source deployed in a staging environment in Platform.

High-level instructions to create documentation for your source in Platform

At a high level, to create documentation for your source, you need to create a fork of the Platform documentation repository and edit the provided documentation template in a new branch. Use the Adobe-provided template to create a new source page and open a pull request (PR) when you are ready. Instructions to do this are further below, in steps to create your new source page.

Documentation template

You can use a pre-filled documentation template to assist in creating documentation for your source. Further below, you can find instructions on how to edit the template and open a pull request.
