0.2 Create your Datastream

Go to https://experience.adobe.com/#/data-collection/. After the previous exercise, you now have two Data Collection properties: one for web and one for mobile.

DSN

These properties are almost ready to be used, but before you can start collecting data using these properties you need to set up a datastream. You’ll get more information around the concept of what a datastream is and what it means in Exercise 1.2.

For now, please follow these steps.

0.2 Create your Datastream for Web

Click Datastreams.

Click Edge Configuration icon in the left navigation

Click New Datastream.

Click Edge Configuration icon in the left navigation

For the Friendly Name, and for the optional description, enter ldap - Demo System Datastream and replace ldap with your ldap.

Name the Edge Configuration and save

Click the Save button

Name the Edge Configuration and save

You’ll then see this:

Name the Edge Configuration and save

Toggle on Adobe Experience Platform which will expose additional fields. You’ll then see this:

Name the Edge Configuration and save

For Sandbox, select your sandbox name.

NOTE

You can find your IMS Org ID, Org Name and your Adobe Experience Platform sandbox name on your company’s github repository that was set up by your Adobe contact. If you don’t know which sandbox to use, verify if you can see a sandbox named AEP Enablement FY21. If you can see that sandbox, please select it.

Name the Edge Configuration and save

For Event Dataset, select Demo System - Event Dataset for Website (Global v1.1) and for Profile Dataset, select Demo System - Profile Dataset for Website (Global v1.1).

Name the Edge Configuration and save

That’s it for now. In Module 1 you’ll learn more about Web SDK and how to configure all of its capabilities.

You now have this. Click Save.

You’ll then see that your datastream consists of 3 environments.

NOTE

If you can’t see your Datastream in the dropdown list, it’s probably because the dropdown is only showing the first 100 results. If you want to select your Datastream out of this list, you need to rename your Datastream to start with a 0 or an a. Alternatively, you can simply paste the Environment ID manually.

Name the Edge Configuration and save
