0.1 Install the Chrome extension for the Experience League documentation

0.1.1 Why did we create a Chrome extension?

The documentation has been made generic so that it can easily be reused by anyone, using any Adobe Experience Platform instance.
By making the documentation reusable, Environment Variables were introduced in the documentation, which means that you’ll find the below keys in the documentation. Every key is a specific variable for a specific environment, and the Chrome extension will change that variable for you and as such make it easy for you to copy code and text from the tutorial pages and paste it in the various User Interfaces that you’ll be using as part of the tutorial.

An example of such values can be found below. Currently, these values can’t be used yet but as soon as you install and activate the Chrome extension, you’ll see these variables change into ‘normal’ text that you can copy and reuse.

Name Key
AEP IMS Org ID --aepImsOrgId--
AEP Tenant ID --aepTenantId--
DCS Inlet ID --dcsInletId--
Demo Profile LDAP --demoProfileLdap--

As an example, in the below screenshot you can see a reference to --aepTenantId--.

Once the extension is installed, that same text will be changed automatically to reflect your instance-specific values.

The extension will also make it possible for you to:

0.1.2 Install the Chrome extension

If you’re an Adobe employee: you can find the configuration ID to use on the internal Github repo (https://git.corp.adobe.com/vangeluw/platformenablement).

If you’re an Adobe Solution Partner, please contact your Solution Partner contact or email spphelp@adobe.com.

In the left menu of the extension, you’ll now see an icon with your initials. Click it. You’ll then see the mapping between the Environment Variables and your specific Adobe Experience Platform instance values. Click Activate Configuration.

After activating your configuration, you’ll see a green dot next to your initials. This means that your Configuration ID is now active. You’ll also see a number of additional menu options appear.

You now have 2 options:

  • If you’re an existing user of the enablement with an existing setup, go to 0.1.3 Existing user - Login
  • If you’re a completely new user who’s starting this tutorial for the first time, go to 0.1.4 Signup and skip 0.1.3 Existing user - Login

0.1.3 Existing user - Login

IMPORTANT

Exercise 0.1.3 Existing user - Login will only work if you’re an existing user who previously signed up for this tutorial.

If you’re an existing user who’s setting up this Chrome extension for the first time, click the purple icon in the left menu. You’ll then see this.

DSN

Fill out the values as required.

IMPORTANT

The LDAP is the most important field: you should use the same LDAP that you used when you first signed up for the tutorial. This will ensure that your progress is loaded successfully. If you’re not sure what your ldap is, have a look at your email address. Use the text before the @-symbol in your email address as LDAP. If your email address is vangeluw@adobe.com, the LDAP you enter here should be vangeluw).

Click OK.

After 30sec-1 minute, your screen will change and you’ll be reverted back to Home, where you’ll see this:

0.1.5 Verify tutorial content

As a test, go to this page.

You should now see that all Environment Variables have been replaced by their true values, based on the Configuration ID in the chrome extension.

You should now have a similar view to the below, where the environment variables --aepTenantId-- has been replaced by your real tenant ID, which in this case is _experienceplatform.
