Premium CDN support for tags (Beta)

IMPORTANT

The premium CDN feature for tags is currently in beta and your organization may not have access to it yet. This documentation is subject to change.

When you use an Adobe-managed host to deliver your Adobe Experience Platform tags assets on your website, these assets are distributed amongst various content delivery networks (CDNs) around the world to deliver the quickest download speed. However, there are certain regions that require all website assets to be replicated and hosted on a server within that region.

To account for this, tags in Experience Platform provides a premium CDN feature which allows you to deliver content to these special regions.

Premium CDN support is a paid feature, and must be purchased by your organization in order to enable and use it. This guide covers how to configure and use this feature in the Data Collection UI after it has been purchased.

Enable premium CDN for your organization

Premium CDN is enabled at the company level. Once your organization has purchased the premium CDN feature, an Adobe administrator will enable for your company in the Data Collection UI.

Rebuild and install tag libraries with updated embed codes

Once premium CDN is enabled, it does not mean that your tag assets are immediately replicated and ready to use within the new regions. It only means that you can now choose when to opt in to this functionality.

IMPORTANT

Libraries built before enabling premium CDN will continue to operate as-is exactly as they do today. This also applies to libraries not managed by Adobe, since archived environments only use relative URLs for their asset paths. Please note that after you have enabled premium CDN, any library you build that is not managed by Adobe will behave as if the premium CDN feature is not enabled.

Once you have enabled premium CDN and rebuilt any libraries that you wish to use from the new hosting regions, you can retrieve the new hosting region embed codes to add to your websites.

NOTE

The library embed code that is listed under the Standard hosting region will continue to work as-is, as well as any Page Top or Page Bottom embed codes already on your websites.

Visit the Environments page or view the environment install instructions from the library edit screen to find the new embed codes. Each new supported hosting region appears after the Standard hosting region (used for areas in the world that are supported without premium CDN). The screenshot below shows an embed code for the China region, which uses .cn as its top-level domain (TLD).

Embed code for the China region

Choose the appropriate embed code for the webpage, and paste it within the <head> tag of your document. For more information using embed codes to install tag libraries, please refer to the environments UI guide.
