2.3 Configure Datasets

In this exercise, you’ll configure the required datasets to capture and store profile information and customer behavior. Every dataset that you create in this will use one of the schemas that you built in the previous step.

Story

After defining what the answer to the questions Who is this customer? and What does this customer do? should look like, you now need to create a bucket that uses that information, to receive and validate data that was sent to Adobe Experience Platform.

2.3.1 - Create Datasets

You now need to create 2 datasets:

  • 1 dataset to capture the information that answers the Who is this customer? - question.
  • 1 dataset to capture the information that answers the What does this customer do? - question.

Log in to Adobe Experience Platform by going to this URL: https://experience.adobe.com/platform.

After logging in, you’ll land on the homepage of Adobe Experience Platform.

Data Ingestion

Before you continue, you need to select a sandbox. The sandbox to select is named --module2sandbox--. You can do this by clicking the text Production Prod in the blue line on top of your screen.

Data Ingestion

From the list of available sandboxes, select the sandbox that matches the number you’ve been assigned.

After selecting the appropriate sandbox, you’ll see the screen change and now you’re in your dedicated sandbox.

Data Ingestion

In Adobe Experience Platform, click on Datasets in the menu on the left side of your screen.

Let’s start by creating the dataset to capture the website registration information.

You should create a new dataset. To create a new dataset, click on the button + Create Dataset.

Data Ingestion

After clicking the + Create Dataset button, you’ll see the following screen.

Data Ingestion

You have to define a dataset from the schema that you defined in the previous step. Click the Create Dataset from Schema - option.

Data Ingestion

In the next screen, you have to select the schema that you created in 1, ldap - Demo System - Profile Schema for Website.

Data Ingestion

After selecting the schema, click Next to continue.

Data Ingestion

Let’s give a name to your dataset.

As the name for our dataset, use this:

ldap - Demo System - Profile Dataset for Website

Replace ldap by your specific ldap. As an example, for ldap vangeluw, this should be the name of the schema:

vangeluw - Demo System - Profile Dataset for Website

That should give you something like this:

Data Ingestion

Click Finish to finish your dataset configuration.

Data Ingestion

You’ll now see this:

Data Ingestion

Go back to the Datasets overview. You’ll now see the dataset you created pop up in the overview.

Data Ingestion

Next, you’ll configure a second dataset to capture website interactions.

You should create a new dataset. To create a new dataset, click on the button + Create Dataset.

Data Ingestion

After clicking the + Create Dataset button, you’ll see the following screen.

Data Ingestion

You have to define a dataset from the schema that you defined in the previous step. Click the Create Dataset from Schema - option.

Data Ingestion

In the next screen, you have to select the schema that you created in 2.2, ldap - Demo System - Event Schema for Website.

Data Ingestion

After selecting the schema, click Next to continue.

Data Ingestion

Let’s give a name to your dataset.

As the name for our dataset, we’ll use this:

ldap - Demo System - Event Dataset for Website

Replace ldap by your specific ldap. As an example, for ldap vangeluw, this should be the name of the schema:

vangeluw - Demo System - Event Dataset for Website

That should give you something like this:

Data Ingestion

Click Finish to finish your dataset configuration.

Data Ingestion

You’ll then see this:

Data Ingestion

Go back to the Datasets overview screen.

Data Ingestion

You now have to enable your datasets to be part of Adobe Experience Platform’s Real-time Customer Profile.

Open you dataset ldap - Demo System - Profile Dataset for Website by clicking it.

Locate the Profile toggle icon on the right side of the screen.

Data Ingestion

Click the Profile toggle to enable this dataset for Profile.

Data Ingestion

Click the Enable.

Data Ingestion

Your dataset is now enabled for Profile.

Go back to the datasets overview and open your dataset ldap - Demo System - Event Dataset for Website by clicking it.

Locate the Profile toggle icon on the right side of the screen.

Data Ingestion

Click the Profile toggle to enable Profile.

Data Ingestion

Click Enable.

Data Ingestion

Your dataset is now enabled for Profile.
