Create a report suite

A report suite is a silo of data that Adobe Analytics uses to pull reports. An organization can have many report suites, each containing different data sets. While separate report suites were important in the past, having a single report suite has become more advantageous. The introduction of virtual report suites and report time processing allows admins to create your own subsets of data, allowing the flexibility to obtain both global and site-specific data.

This article is designed for system-level administrators or Adobe Analytics admins to prepare for data collection.

After logging in to the Experience Cloud, the Analytics icon is greyed out.

This means that your account has not been granted the correct permissions to Analytics. Work with a system-level admin in your organization to ensure you belong to a profile with adequate permissions to access Adobe Analytics.
