About Data Connectors

Data Connectors is a tool for installing 3rd party applications with Adobe Analytics. Many Adobe Exchange applications are installed through Data Connectors while others are not. Follow these instructions for Adobe Exchange applications installed using Data Connectors.

Prerequisites for configuring an integration

Before configuring a Data Connectors integration for your product, do the following:

  • Have the necessary access credentials for the partner product account, with rights to access all data you want to integrate with marketing reports. You might want to create a special e-mail account for report distributors and for notification concerning the integrated operations.
  • Identify the custom variables that hold your campaign information. This is commonly referred to as the campaign tracking code, but your organization might use some other terminology.
  • Determine the events that you want to receive impressions and click data. You might want to rename the events accordingly.
  • Place the appropriate code on your landing page so that Analytics can do appropriate modeling with the data that comes from the partner product. Specific instructions for each partner product are found in the in the Data Connectors Showcase on the Resources tab.
