The Experience Cloud Identity Service enables the common identification framework for Experience Cloud Application Services. You can use the Experience Cloud Identity Service to set the Experience Cloud ID (ECID).
The ECID is a shared identity namespace used across Adobe Experience Platform and Experience Cloud applications to track visitor behavior and ensure that each device has a unique identifier that can persist across multiple sessions.
The Experience Cloud Identity Service, Experience Platform Identity Service, and ECID are three different entities.
The Experience Cloud Identity Service can replace different application-specific IDs and use the Customer IDs and Authentication States functionality to let you pass in your own customer IDs to the Experience Cloud.
The Experience Cloud Identity Service only works with Experience Cloud Application Services that you are subscribed to and will not provide access to other application services if you are not subscribed to them.
Experience Cloud Identity Service supports the following applications:
Going forward, the ID service is an integral component of many current and future Experience Cloud features, enhancements, and services. Currently, the ID service supports Analytics, Audience Manager, and Target. If you have not implemented the ID service, now is the time to start considering a migration strategy.
In summary, the Experience Cloud Identity Service helps:
Your solution and other Adobe code libraries must meet certain requirements before you can use Identity Service.
