|Support for SameSite cookie settings||The SameSite cookie setting will be added to all cookies set by Analytics. This change allows you to be compliant with the Chrome changes requiring the SameSite cookie field. Analytics cookies will default to
|Workspace: Increase item limit for dropdown filter from 50 to 200||We increased the limit of items that can be placed in a dropdown filter from 50 to 200. This enhancement accommodates a variety of use cases, such as adding all countries (195) to a filter, or all US states and provinces (52).|
|A4T Activity Impressions and Activity Conversions enabled for Attribution IQ||We have enabled two Analytics for Target (A4T) metrics for Attribution IQ: Activity Impressions and Activity Conversion. Previously, in Analysis Workspace, these metrics were inflated compared to Reports & Analytics. With this change, users can now apply a “same touch” attribution model, which will bring Analysis Workspace in line with Reports & Analytics.|
|Notice||Date Added or Updated||Description|
|Support for Historical Timezone Offsets||August 8, 2019||Analytics will now automatically handle timezone offsets for timestamped hits. Following this change on August 8, systems that load in data for historical processing will no longer need to adjust for timezone offsets before sending in the data.|
|Classification rule builder limits||Added June 5, 2019||These limits are not new, but have been added to the documentation here.|
|New segment operator limits||Added May 31, 2019||Starting July 18, 2019, the segment operators contains any of, does not contain any of, contains all of and does not contain all of will be limited to 100 words per input field. The limit will be applied to all new and modified segments after this date. Existing segments that exceed the limit will continue to be supported, but cannot be modified or saved until the input field is reduced. These limits are being applied as part of a continued effort to improve query performance.|
|Upcoming support changes for Date-Enabled and Numeric 2 Classifications||Updated May 28, 2019||The ability to import Numeric 2 and Date-Enabled classifications has been removed from the codebase. This change will take effect with the July 2019 Maintenance Release. If you have Numeric or Date-Enabled columns in your import file, those cells will be silently ignored, and any other data within that file will be imported as normal.
Existing classifications can still be exported through the standard classification workflow, and will continue to be available in reporting.
|Change to Report Total calculations||Updated July 9, 2019||On June 18, 2019, Adobe Analytics made Report Total calculations consistent across all dimensions and metrics. This will result in a change to the totals for some reports (typically, Prop or Customer Attributes reports). Prior to this change, some Report Totals inconsistently included or excluded the Unspecified line item in the total, regardless of whether Unspecified appeared in the report.
As of June 18, 2019, Unspecified will always appear in the report total, even if it does not appear as a line item in the report. Additionally, segments using exists or does not exist logic may see different results for some dimensions after this change, specifically dimensions where Unspecified has a special name such as the “Typed/Bookmarked” line item for Referrer Type dimension or the “Other” line item for the Device Type dimension. This change will affect Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, Ad Hoc Analysis, Report Builder, and the Reporting API.
Note: This Report Total calculation is now called Grand Total. See “Analysis Workspace: Update to Freeform table totals” in the October 2019 release notes.
|Update to CSV downloads from Analysis Workspace||April 10, 2019||Starting on April 11, 2019, several changes were made to CSV downloads (and Copy to Clipboard) from Analysis Workspace to remove formatting from exported data.
|Upcoming change to the Analysis Workspace Debugger command||April 4, 2019||The Console command to turn on the Analysis Workspace Debugger is changing to adobeTools.debug.includeOberonXml on June 13, 2019. adobe.tools.debug.includeOberonXml will cease to function after that date.|
|Mobile browser version numbers||February 7, 2019||Starting January 8, 2019, we changed the truncation level for mobile browser version numbers from 2 to 1. From that date forward, versions only display the first two levels (e.g. Firefox 64.0.2 is now reported as Firefox 64.0).|
|End of life for Ad Hoc Analysis||January 29, 2019||On August 6, 2018, Adobe announced the intention to end-of-life Ad Hoc Analysis. An end-of-life date will be shared once available.
For more information, including which versions of Java will be compatible during this period, visit Discover Workspace.
|Short Analytics report links||January 14, 2019||Any short Analytics report links that have not been visited within one year will be cleaned up and deleted starting on Thursday, January 17, 2019, on a rolling schedule.|
|End of Support for TLS 1.0||Updated January 10, 2019||As of February 11, 2019 Adobe Analytics reporting no longer supports TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.0 encryption. This change is part of our ongoing efforts to maintain the highest security standards and promote the safety of customer data. If you are unable to connect to Adobe Analytics reporting after February 11, 2019, you should upgrade your browser to the latest version.
As of February 20, 2019 Adobe Analytics data collection no longer supports TLS 1.0. With this change, Adobe no longer collects Analytics data from end users with older devices or web browsers that do not support TLS 1.1 or later. We do not expect this to have a significant impact on customer data or reporting. (If your website already does not support TLS 1.0, you will not be affected.)
Beginning April 11, 2019, the Adobe Analytics Reporting API no longer supports TLS 1.0 encryption. Customers who access the API should verify that they will not be impacted.
|Data Feed: post_product_list column - size change||January 9, 2019||On February 7, 2019, Adobe expanded the size of the post_product_list column from 64 KB to 16 MB. This change ensures that merchandising eVar values added to post_product_list during processing do not cause truncation of product and revenue values. If you have processes that ingest post_product_list values, please ensure those processes can handle values up to 16 MB in length, or will truncate the value at 16 KB to avoid data ingestion failures.|
|Management changes affecting inactive Analytics Live Stream endpoints||December 20, 2018||Starting on February 1, 2019, Live Stream endpoints with no active consumer connections for 90 days may be disabled. You can reach out to Customer Care to inquire about your Live Stream endpoints and, if necessary, have them re-enabled. In addition, please ensure your consumer processes maintain a persistent connection, as intended by the design of the service, and that they are implemented to reconnect when the connection is disconnected or interrupted.|
|Update Adobe Report Builder due to end of support for TLS 1.0||Sept. 7, 2018||Due to the end of support for TLS 1.0, we recommended that Report Builder users download version v5.6.21 prior to February 2019. After that date, prior versions of Report Builder will no longer function.|
AppMeasurement 2.17.0 released on August 23, 2019.
|Added Baidu support||Added support for Baidu query string reordering.|
|Fix||Fixed an issue that caused stale visitor values in hits that were queued while waiting for opt-in.|
AppMeasurement 2.16.0 released on August 8, 2019.
|ECID/fid values||ECID/fid values are now cached on the first hit even though OptIn settings change.|
|DIL 9.3||Updated Audience Manager Module to DIL 9.3|
|Scroll reach tracking||Exposed switch in s.ActivityMap.trackScrollReach to turn scroll reach tracking on or off.|
|Visitor ID Service 4.4.0||Upgraded AppMeasurement to use Visitor ID Service 4.4.0.|

Fixes and Improvements
New features, fixes, and updates in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). Adobe recommends customers with on-premise deployments to deploy the latest patches to ensure higher stability, security, and performance.
Digital Publishing Suite Classic (DPSC) will end-of-life on August 31, 2019. For more information, see the Digital Publishing Suite Classic End-of-Life FAQ.
Adobe Campaign provides an intuitive, automated way to deliver one-to-one messages across online and offline marketing channels. You can now anticipate what your clients want using experiences determined by their habits and preferences.
|External API Activity (Public Beta)||For deeper personalization, External API Activity allows you to bring data from external systems into a workflow via a REST API call. The REST endpoints can be a customer management system, Adobe I/O Runtime or Adobe Experience Cloud REST endpoint (e.g. Data Platform, Target, Analytics, Campaign). This capability is currently in public beta. For more information, refer to the detailed documentation and the how-to video.|
|Report on workflow segment||This feature allows marketers to break down their delivery performance by segment code. When you create a workflow and use a segmentation activity to assign segments to the delivery population, these segments can now go into the same delivery. This allows you to display the opens/clicks statistics based on multiple segments within a single delivery. For more information, refer to the detailed documentation and the how-to video.|
Campaign Classic 19.1.3 update – build 9031
New Control Panel capabilities include the ability to add URLs that Campaign Classic connects to for data/file transfers.
Please note that Control Panel is available for both Adobe Campaign Classic and Adobe Campaign Standard customers hosted on AWS. No upgrades are required to access Control Panel.
Updated: August 9, 2019, for August 10 release
