|Journey IQ: Cross-Device Analytics||In September 2019, Adobe Analytics is introducing a powerful new feature called Journey IQ: Cross-Device Analytics. (Please note that this feature is available only to Analytics Ultimate customers.) Cross-Device Analytics (CDA) transforms Adobe Analytics from a device centric to a person-centric analysis tool. Using CDA you can answer questions such as:

|Updated Classifications architecture||Starting in September, an update to the Classifications architecture will be migrated to customers over a period of several months. The September release includes migration for a small number of early adopters.
The update significantly reduces the time it takes for uploads (including rule logic) to be imported/ingested and made available for reporting.
|Notice||Date Added or Updated||Description|
|Update to Analysis Workspace Freeform Table totals||September 12, 2019||In October 2019, freeform table total rows will begin accounting for report filters applied. To date, totals have accounted only for segmentation. With this change, dependent visualizations will update (e.g. linked Summary Number visualizations), as well as exported CSV and PDF data.|
|Upcoming change regarding
||August 30, 2019||In October or November 2019, the
|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.|
|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 took 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 resulted 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.|
New features, enhancements, and fixes in Audience Manager.
|People-Based Destinations||People-Based Destinations is a paid Audience Manager add-on that helps you activate first-party audience segments across people-based environments, like Facebook, using hashed identifiers, such as email addresses.|
|Configuring Twitter Tailored Audiences as a Self-Service Device-Based Destination||We’re migrating Twitter destinations to a self-service configuration model. This article explains what you need to do for existing Twitter integrations to continue working after the migration.|
|Audience Marketplace Billing Examples||We added a new example, Case 3, where we detail how billing works for segments with activation and modeling use cases.|
