Adobe Experience Platform Real-time CDP can deliver a payload to two types of destinations, segment destinations and profile destinations.

Segment destinations will receive a predefined segment qualification payload that will be discussed later. Such a payload contains all the segment qualifications for a specific profile. Even for segments that are not in de destination’s activation list. An example of such a segment destination are Azure Event Hubs and AWS Kinesis.

Profile based destinations let you pick any attribute (firstName, lastName, …) from the XDM Profile Union Schema and include it in the activation payload. An example of such destination is the Email Marketing.

Because your Azure Event Hub destination is a segment destination, select for example the field --aepTenantId--.identification.ecid.

Click Add new field, click browse schema and select the field --aepTenantId--identification.ecid (delete any other field that would be displayed automatically).

Click Next.
