18.3 Create a Streaming Segment

18.3.1 Introduction

You’ll create a simple segment:

  • Citi Signal Sports Fan for which customer profiles will qualify when they visit the Sports page of the Citi Signal brand.

Good to know

Adobe Experience Platform Real-time CDP will trigger an activation to a destination when you qualify for a segment that is part of that destination’s activation list. When that is the case, the segment qualification payload that will be send to that destination will contain all the segments for which your profile qualifies.

The goal of this module is to show that your Customer Profile’s segment qualification is sent to your event hub destination in real-time. As a result our segment definition will have to include your ldap so that it only identifies your profiles.

To avoid that and to keep the qualification payload small, we will only look at experience events that contain the field brand.ldap equal to your ldap

Segment Status

A segment qualification in Adobe Experience Platform always has a status-property and can be one of the following:

  • realized: this indicates a new segment qualification
  • existing: this indicates an existing segment qualification
  • exited: this indicates that the profile does no longer qualify for the segment

18.3.2 Build the segment

Building a segment is explained in detail in Module 11.
