Implement Adobe Analytics using the Adobe Experience Platform Edge Network Server API

You typically use the Experience Platform Edge Network Server API to collect data server-side rather than client-side and when collecting data from devices like IoT devices, set-top boxes, desktop applications. Then you send that data to the Edge network and to services like Adobe Analytics.

Also consider the Edge Network Server API when you require sensitive data to be collected securely and authenticated across the network. See Authentication for more information.

Setup schemas. To standardize data collection for use across applications that leverage Adobe Experience Platform, Adobe has created the open and publicly documented standard, Experience Data Model (XDM).

Configure a datastream. A datastream represents the server-side configuration when using the API's from the Adobe Experience Platform Edge Network API.

Batch event data collection
Add an Adobe Analytics service to your datastream. That service controls whether and how data is sent to Adobe Analytics.
