Adobe Experience Platform Launch is being rebranded as a suite of data collection technologies in Experience Platform. Several terminology changes have rolled out across the product documentation as a result. Please refer to the following document for a consolidated reference of the terminology changes.
November 21, 2019
Library Republish: A user with the appropriate Publish permissions can now republish a previously published library. Only the last 5 libraries are eligible for republishing. Read Republish library for more info.
Search: A user can now search for resources in their property and jump directly to that resource. This includes searching Extensions, Data Elements, Rules, Rule Components.
November 11, 2019
Notes: You can now add textual annotations to notable resources. These include Extensions, Data Elements, Rules, Rule Components, and Libraries. See the Notes page for more details.
Updated the help docs search to search the new docs repository
Fixed a bug that would sometimes incorrectly report there were no Audit Events
October 29, 2019
When a user deletes a record, either Rule or Data Element, and that record is on the last page of a multi-page list the user is now redirected back to the correct page in the list.
Fixed an issue where property copy data could become stale, mainly caused by closing the browser window when a copy is in process.
October 15, 2019
If a user has access to more than one organization, the correct Org ID is now persisted correctly when the user switches between orgs.
When a user’s session expires, they are now redirected to the login page correctly.
October 08, 2019
Property Copy: You can now make a copy of a property and everything in it. From the Properties list page, simply choose a property and select Copy in the toolbar.
Working Library Build button: For users who use the Working Library, there’s now a build button. When you have set the working library and make edits to a resource, the default action is now Save and Add instead of Save and Build. This will allow users to make edits to multiple resources and then build when you are ready.
Visual tweaks to code checks in the code editor: We made some visual tweaks to soften the appearance of the Code Validation that we released back in August.
Dependencies are checked when building a library. We’ve done some optimizations there to reduce the number of network requests that are made when performing these checks.
September 24, 2019
Multiple cache invalidations: If you are using the Managed by Adobe Host for your environments, tags now makes multiple cache invalidations each time you publish. Previously, one invalidation was performed for each build immediately after the build was uploaded. However, there is a time delay between when the file is uploaded to one origin server and when it is available on all origin servers, so there was a race condition that sometimes caused the stale version of the library to be cached on the edge for up to 6 hours. Each build is now purged on the following intervals:
Fixed an issue where, in certain edge cases where you had more than 100 libraries on the Publishing screen, there was a bug that caused Libraries in the Submitted column not to show up.
September 12, 2019
There was a bug that prevented you from being able to unassign an Environment from a Library (when you chose No environment, it wasn’t saved correctly). That works again.
September 04, 2019
Tokens in pathnames: Newly created environments now use much shorter IDs for Company, Property, Extension, and Environment in the pathnames referenced in the embed codes. Self-hosting users were bumping into path length limitations on Windows systems, so they’ve been shortened. Existing environments are unaffected. New environments have much shorter paths, including the embed codes referenced in the install instructions.
Updated the regex tester to be more explicit about the expected inputs and how the pattern you enter will be used at run-time.
Fixed a bug that caused you to be unable to upgrade an extension when the installed version had no settings and the latest version did.
Fixed a bug that, in rare cases, caused unavailable environments to show as available.
August 14, 2019
Code Validation: The custom code editor now lints and minifies your code behind the scenes and informs you if there are problems. Some of these notifications are warnings, but some are errors that will cause your build to fail if this code is included in a library.
Extension Enhancements for Compare View: Rule Components and Data Elements rely on extensions. Extensions have their own settings and revisions that can potentially modify the behavior of your components, even if the settings on the component itself are the same. Compare view now warns you if the component is relying on a different extension revision than its historical counterpart, so you can decide if you’d also like to compare the extension settings.
Fixed a bug that defaulted some users to the first Org they had access to when opening a new tab. This only affected a few users.
Fixed a bug that prevented you from being able to re-expand custom code in compare view.
June 18, 2019
Libraries that use the Managed by Adobe host and a non-archived environment now reference all sub files directly with https:// instead of inheriting the underlying page protocol. This enables you to use tags in embedded HTML scenarios (mobile and set-top-box environment in particular) without self-hosting.
You can now unset your Working Library.
The Edit Library screen now has a button to Remove All Resources.
The size of the click target has increased to remove individual resources from a library
Fixed a bug in Safari that caused the Add Resource buttons on the Library Edit page to show in the wrong place.
Fixed a bug with validating uppercase domains on the Property Edit screen.
Fixed a bug that caused some buttons to be available when they should not be.
June 15, 2019
Archive packages on SFTP Hosts are now delivered to the root patch specified by the Host instead of being delivered two subdirectories deep (which is how all other builds are delivered). This was a change because of permissions issues creating subdirectories on some SFTP servers.
June 13, 2019
Error messages now provide much more detail about the error that occurred (for those who want to look). They also provide an easy way to log tickets and some key identifiers that will help Adobe to troubleshoot any issues. And they’ve moved to the bottom center of the page to comply with the latest Adobe styles.
The Add Resource buttons on the Library Edit page now float as you scroll up and down so they are always visible.
The URLS for Resource Comparison are more informative (and useful for debugging purposes).
Fixed a bug in Edge on Windows 10 that wouldn’t let you promote libraries in Edge on Windows 10.
Fixed a bug in Edge on Windows 10 that prevented library resources from being displayed on the Library edit page.
Fixed a bug that was showing scroll bars in unnecessary places.
Fixed several broken links that were scattered about.
Fixed several non-scrollable areas for iOS browsers.
June 11, 2019
Archive packages now use relative symlinks instead of absolute ones.
You can no longer delete a Host that is being used by an environment
Resources in revision selector will now appear alphabetically
Fixed a bug that caused certain rules to fail to copy
Got rid of a few unnecessary unsaved changes prompts
Updated shell to match the rest of Experience Cloud
Fixed the polling bug on library build, so we’ll retry 5 times before starting the exponential backoff
Got rid of a few warnings for deprecation in the developer console
May 8, 2019
The Reactor API that powers tags is officially reaching 1.0 status today. This comes with a commitment to maintaining backward compatibility within this major version (the 1.x series). To get started working with the Reactor API, please visit the Reactor API guide.
A number of API changes have been made for this 1.0 release.
Adapter has been renamed to Host. Audit events will contain the following items related to this change.
For each adapter, you’ll see a Host.created event.
For each environment, you’ll see an Environment.updated event to remove the relationship with the adapter and add the relationship to the host.
For each adapter, you’ll see an Adapter.deleted event.
Fixed some inconsistencies with the Regular Expression tester used by various extensions.
April 8, 2019
Improved a few build error messages
Better reporting for failed SFTP Hosts
Updated the way that rule components and data elements relate to extensions. When you delete an extension and reinstall an extension, you no longer have to manually update your resources to point to the newly installed extension.
Rule components are now under Property instead of Rule. This lays a foundation for future enhancements to rule components.
March 20, 2019
Visual updates to the resource copy tool, including status indicators and a cancel button.
March 5, 2019
Builds stored on Akamai will use a new folder structure. Embed codes do not change. This will mediate many issues we’ve seen with builds to Akamai.
February 20, 2019
Support for custom code has been added to Compare View.
The cross-property workflow is now a bit smoother.
February 12, 2019
Cross-property Copy - You can now copy resources from one property to another. After choosing a resource and selecting Copy, you can select a target property to copy to. This is available on extensions, data elements, and rules. Read more about copying resources here.
January 29, 2019
Revision Compare - You can now compare one version of a resource with older versions. This is available on extensions, data elements, and rules. Read more about this new feature here.
January 17, 2019
Builds should be running ~15% faster than before. Large builds (hundreds of resources) will have more dramatic improvements.
January 8, 2019
Core Extension 1.4.2
The Enters Viewport event is now configurable to trigger each time that the element enters the viewport instead of just the first time.
Custom Events can now contain extra contextual data that can be used in conditions and actions.
Link Delay on the Click event will now trigger on descendants of the anchor and not just the anchor itself.
Properties that are configured for Extension Development now have a small tag next to the Property Name.
OrgID is now available on the _satellite object.
Use of the Data Collection UI is no longer supported in IE 11, you’ll receive a warning if you login with IE 11.
Better support for long library names in your Active Library and the Publishing view.
In certain scenarios, when you saved a library, the dependency checker would prompt you to add a new revision of an extension that was already in your library. It doesn’t do that anymore.
Tooltips will now reliably show up in Safari.
Searches in the search bar will now trigger a bit faster than before.
