Adobe Analytics offers two separate APIs, both of which Datatap fully supports.
- 1.4, which covers a section in their UI, called 'Reports'.
- 2.0, which covers another section, called 'Workspace'.
This is reflected in Datatap by the existence of two distinct Datastreams:
For each API there're multiple authentication methods available - again, we support the full range.
ADOBE ANALYTICS 1.4
- WSSE (deprecated, but no end of licence notification disseminated to date).
- Implicit OAuth (deprecated and EOL notice received, will cease to function November 2020).
ADOBE ANALYTICS 2.0
- 2.0 Legacy (Limited to 24 hours, after which users have to re-authorize the Connection.).
Whilst most APIs deliver a static set of metrics and dimensions, Adobe Analytics can be configured to select the fields you wish sent to Datatap. This makes for a very flexible API, but can also require a little extra setup to ensure you have the data you need.
The above illustrates the Datastream Settings page:
a. Represents the fields currently set to be included in any Fetch action.
b. Is a drop-down of all fields available to Datatap. If your desired field does not appear in the drop-down, it is most likely not being transmitted by Adobe Analytics. In this case, you would need to refer to your Adobe Analytics instance and reconfigure the fields being sent.
- If you find yourself unable to access certain metrics, we suggest reviewing the following Adobe Documentation, which lists all known limitations that would prevent such access.
- Adobe Analytics 2.0 limits the number of columns that can be retrieved in one fetch action, meaning that it may be necessary to split columns between two or more Datastreams.
- The default rate limit for an Adobe Analytics Company is 120 requests per minute, enforced as 12 requests every 6 seconds. Datatap handles this rate limit implicitly, without intervention required.
