Adobe Analytics v2 Connector

Version 5

 

Intro

Adobe Analytics helps you create a holistic view of your business by turning customer interactions into actionable insights. Domo's Adobe Analytics v2 connector allows you to retrieve data through prebuilt reports. You can then combine metrics with data from CRM, POS, or any other system to make faster, better-informed business decisions. To learn more about the Adobe Analytics API, visit their website ( https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/en_US/get-started/introduction/c-introduction ).

You connect to the Adobe Analytics API in the Data Center.

This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Adobe Analytics connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to the Adobe Analytics API v2 and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The Client ID found in the Adobe Integration Overview page
  • The Client Secret found in the Adobe Integration Overview page
  • The Technical Account ID found in the Adobe Integration Overview page
  • The Organization ID found in the Adobe Integration Overview page
  • The Global Company ID found in the request URL for the users/me endpoint in Adobe's Swagger UI
  • The Private Key for your Adobe integration in PEM format
To obtain your Client ID, Client Secret, Technical Account ID, and Organization ID:
  • Create a new integration in Adobe I/O Console by following the Adobe's instructions. You will need to create a public/private key pair, upload the public key to Adobe, and provide the private key to Domo.
  • From the Adobe Integration Overview page, you can find your API Key (Client ID), Technical Account ID, Organization ID, and Client Secret.
  • Domo will use your credentials to create a JSON web token, sign in with your private key, and exchange that JWT token for an access token to access the Adobe Analytics API. For more information, see Adobe’s documentation.
To obtain your Global Company ID:

You can find your Global Company ID in the request URL for the users/me endpoint in Adobe's Swagger UI.

  • Log into the Swagger UI, expand the Users endpoint, then click GET users/me.
  • Click Try it out, then click Execute.
  • Note/copy your Global Company ID in the Request URL immediately preceding the users/me endpoint.
  • Visit Adobe documentation to learn more.

Connecting to the Adobe Analytics API v2

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Adobe Analytics v2 connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to the Adobe Analytics API v2. The following table describes what is needed for each field:

FAQs

Q: How can I migrate my reports from version 1.4 of the Adobe Analytics API to version 2?

A: Refer to the Adobe Analytic's Migrating Guide for details. Version 2 is designed to run smaller requests quickly, compared to version 1.4 which handle large requests slowly. This design change means that Domo cannot automatically migrate your datasets into version 2.

Q: How does this connector differ from the other Adobe Analytics connectors?

A: The Adobe Analytics and Adobe Analytics Advanced connectors use version 1.4 of the Adobe Analytics API, while this connector uses version 2.
