Prerequisites for Adobe Analytics-only implementations

The prerequisites described in this section are specific to implementing Streaming Media with Adobe-Analytics-only implementations (when not using Edge).

  1. Complete the general prerequisites

    Whether you implement Streaming Media for Adobe Analytics-only implementations or for Edge implementations, ensure that you meet the general prerequisites.

  2. Confirm that you have an Adobe Analytics implementation

    When implementing Streaming Media with an Analytics-only implementation, an Adobe Analytics basic implementation is also required. See Implement Adobe Analytics for more information.

  3. Obtain the media tracking server URL

    Ask your Adobe Analytics Representative for the media tracking server URL. This is the collection-api-server URL for the Mobile SDK, the JavaScript SDK, and the non-collection-api tracking server for Roku. Domain names for API implementation is: [your_namespace]

  4. Download the current Media SDK or implement the required Extensions

    Depending on the implementation path, download the current SDK for web, mobile, or over-the-top platforms. The required extensions must be implemented to enable Adobe Analytics for Streaming Media extensions paths.

  5. Enable Adobe Analytics Reports

    To enable reports in Analytics and to view the content and ad data that you’re collecting, you must enable reports in Analytics. See Media reports enablement.
