All documentation is available on Experience League by going here.
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. When you see one of those keys, you should change that into the specific value for your specific Adobe Experience Platform instance.
|AEP IMS Org ID||
|AEP Tenant ID||
|DCS Inlet ID||
|Back4App Application ID||
|X-ray Adobe I/O Profile URL||
|X-ray Adobe I/O Experience Event URL||
|X-ray Adobe I/O Segment URL||
This results in the documentation looking like this, which gives you a lot of manual copy and paste work to replace those variables by their real values.
In order to make this process easier, a Chrome extension was built to automatically load and translate those keys into your specific values, based on the Configuration ID you created in Exercise 0.2.
To install that Chrome extension, open your Chrome browser.
Click Add to Chrome.
You’ll then see this. Click Add extension.
The extension will then be installed, and you’ll see a similar notification.
In the extensions menu, click the puzzle piece icon and pin the Platform Learn - Configuration extension to the extension menu.
Go to https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/platform-learn/comprehensive-technical-tutorial/overview.html and then click the extension icon to open it.
You’ll then see this popup.
Enter your name and the Configuration ID you created in Exercise 0.2. Click Create New.
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.
Scroll down (or make the popup a bit bigger) until you see the button Activate Configuration. Click the button Activate Configuration.
You’ll then see a green dot next to your initials. This means that your Configuration ID is now active.
Close the popup.
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You should now see that all Environment Variables have been replaced by their true values, based on the Configuration ID in the chrome extension.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--aepTenantId-- has been replaced by your Tenant ID, which in this case is _experienceplatform.
