The Update profile action activity allows you to update an existing Adobe Experience Platform profile with information coming from the event, a datasource or using a specific value.
Design your journey by starting with an event. See this section.
In the Action section of the palette, drop the Update profile activity into the canvas.
Select a schema from the list.
Click on Fields to select the field you want to update. Only one field can be selected.
Select a dataset from the list.
The Update profile action updates the profile data in realtime, but it does not update datasets. The dataset selection is needed as the profile is a record related to a dataset.
Click on the Value field to define the value you want to use:
Using the simple expression editor, you can select a field from a data source or from the incoming event.
If you want to define a specific value or leverage advanced functions, click on Advanced mode.
The Update profile is now configured.
