Access the Experience Cloud
Sign in to the Experience Cloud using your Adobe ID, link accounts, and log in to solutions via direct Experience
Cloud link.
After the email invitation is sent to a user, he or she can link their solution credentials with their Adobe ID. This link
enables a user to log in to all of their solutions from one place. If a user does not have an Adobe ID, you can create
one prior to linking your accounts.
For example, in Analytics and Social, link (or map) the Company, Username, and Password values to your Adobe
ID.
See Link accounts in the Experience Cloud.
Administrators, if you are not part of the Experience Cloud, see Enabling Solutions for Core Services.
Having Trouble - Password Recovery
If you receive an error when linking accounts, you might need to recover your solution password. Depending on the
solution you are using, you may have a different password recovery process.
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
22
Generally, to recover a password:
1. Navigate to your solution login page.
2. Click Forgot Password.
For Adobe Analytics users, navigate to https://sc2.omniture.com/password_recovery.html.
Resetting a solution password should resolve password linking issues for Experience Cloud account linking.
Enabling Solutions for Core Services

• Approve Creative Cloud users for asset sharing.
• Add product configurations
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
Task
23
Description
• View your Organization ID (under Experience Cloud Details).
See Administration and User Management.
User Access
To log in to the Experience Cloud, your users must:
1. Have an Adobe ID.
2. Sign in at <yourcompany>.marketing.adobe.com
3. Belong to a solution group that is mapped to an enterprise group.
4. If necessary, link their solution accounts to their Adobe ID (described below).
Link existing user
accounts.
You likely have users who are already members of solution groups, such an Analytics
group that you defined in Analytics > Admin Tools. When you map these groups to
Experience Cloud enterprise groups, those users must manually link their solution
account credentials to their Adobe ID.
See Link accounts in the Experience Cloud
Note: After enterprise and solution groups are mapped, new users are automatically
linked. (Solution credentials are automatically created and linked to their Adobe ID.)
The following sections describe how to modernize your implementation. Modernizing your implementation enables
core services in the Experience Cloud.
2. Implement the Experience Cloud ID service using DTM
The simplest method for enabling Experience Cloud core services is to activate it automatically for Analytics and
Target via the Experience Cloud ID service tool in Activation - Dynamic Tag Management.
For complete Experience Cloud ID service (formerly, visitor ID), go here.
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
24
Not Using Dynamic Tag Management?
If you are not using Dynamic Tag Management, manually implement the ID service via the JavaScript Deployment
(VisitorAPI.js), as follows:
1. Perform the steps described in Set Up the Experience Cloud ID Service for Analytics.
Consider the requirements and decision points described in Using Analytics with the ID Service.
Adobe also recommends setting additional customer IDs. These IDs are associated with each visitor and enable
current and future functionality in Experience Cloud core services.
2. Update your existing s_code to version H.27.3 or later, or your existing AppMeasurement.js to version 1.4
or later.
These files are available for download in the Code Manager in Analytics Admin Tools.
(The JavaScript Implementation guide is available if you need more information about AppMeasurement.js.)
3. Synchronize the customer ID for Analytics. See Analytics & Target - synching the customer ID (below).
Analytics & Target - synching the customer ID
As a part of setting up the Experience Cloud ID service, Adobe recommends for Analytics and Target that you
synchronize your customer IDs with the Experience Cloud. When a visitor authenticates on your website, or otherwise
identifies himself, your implementation must expose that person's CRM customer ID to the page or app. Then you
can use the appropriate function call to synchronize your customer ID to the Experience Cloud. This synchronization
stores the visitor's CRM customer ID in the Experience Cloud, and activates that customer's attributes for use in the
Experience Cloud.
For example, assume that Bob has Customer ID 52mc210tr42 in your CRM system. When Bob authenticates on
your site, you must expose this ID on the page, and use the ID to synchronize it by one of two means:
• Call visitor.setCustomerIDs({"crm_id":"52mc210tr42"}) using the Visitor ID service.
Or,
• Populate the Customer ID (52mc210tr42) in a prop or eVar.
The Customer ID must be set on each Analytics server call where the Customer ID is known.
Mobile SDKs
See the Experience Cloud ID service section for syntax examples about how to set additional customer IDs in Android
and iOS Mobile applications.
Enabling Attributes for Historical Data
Customer attribute data is made available after visitors log in. If you have not yet implemented the latest Experience
Cloud ID service, and if you have historically been tracking customer IDs in a prop or eVar, you can request a process
that sends historical logins to the Experience Cloud.This process lets you begin using customer attributes immediately.
Contact Customer Care to enable historical data.
3. Map Report Suites to a Experience Cloud Organization
Experience Cloud services (such as Experience Cloud ID service and Profiles & Audiences) are associated with a
Experience Cloud organization instead of an individual report suite. To ensure that these services operate correctly,
each Analytics report suite must be mapped to a Experience Cloud organization.
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
25
Steps to map report suites.
4. (Adobe Analytics) Modernize your Analytics AppMeasurement code
• Verify that you are on regional data collection (RDC).
If your data collection domain is omtrdc.net, or if your CNAME is mapped to omtrdc.net, you are on RDC.
See Transitioning to RDC for more information.
If you are using first-party cookies, refer to CNAME and the Visitor ID Service for information about data collection
CNAMEs and cross-domain tracking.
• It is recommended that you modernize your Analytics implementation by updating your JavaScript libraries, including
the Visitor API. The simple way to accomplish this is to add an Adobe Analytics tool in Dynamic Tag Management,
specifying Automatic as the configuration method.
In Dynamic Tag Management, click <Web Property Name> > Overview > Add a Tool > Adobe Analytics.
See Adobe Analytics Settings in Dynamic Tag Management for deployment information.
5. (Adobe Target) Modernize your Adobe Target implementation
• It is recommended that you add an Adobe Target tool in Dynamic Tag Management, so that your library retrieval
is automatic.
In Dynamic Tag Management, click <Web Property Name> > Overview > Add a Tool > Adobe Target.
Note: You can also use Dynamic Tag Management to deploy the Experience Cloud ID service for Target (and
other solutions). The Experience Cloud ID service update is required for Target to use core services.
• If you are not using Dynamic Tag Management, update your mbox library manually.
• Request access to use Adobe Analytics as the reporting source for Adobe Target. Target and Analytics data are
combined on the same server call during processing so that visitors are connected between the two solutions.
See Analytics for Target Implementation.
•
Important: All analytics customers are already provisioned for core services like customer attributes. If you
are not an Analytics customer, contact Customer Care to request to be provisioned.
6. Verify the core services implementation
Use the following process to ensure the Experience Cloud ID service is implemented correctly on your site.
1. Clear cookies for your site so you can see the request to the Experience Cloud ID service (the request happens
on the first visit, then approximately once per visitor per week).
2. Using a packet analyzer or the network panel in a web browser debugger, look for a request going to
dpm.demdex.net.
3. Verify that the response contains d_mid and a value, for example:
_setMarketingCloudFields({"d_mid":"4235...
4. Verify that the Analytics request contains the mid parameter (the Experience Cloud ID). During the grace period
(if it is enabled), you should also see an aid parameter (the Analytics visitor ID).
Expected response containing the Experience Cloud ID:
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
Analytics image request containing the Experience Cloud ID (mid):
Experience Cloud ID in the mbox request:
26
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
27
What Is the Grace Period?
After you deploy the visitor ID service, new visitors no longer receive an Analytics visitor ID from your data collection
server. If sections of your site have not yet implemented the visitor ID service, when visitors browse to these sections,
the Experience Cloud ID is not recognized and visitors are assigned a legacy Analytics visitor ID. This can cause a
number of issues including duplicate visits and incorrect attribution.
For example, if the support section of your site is managed in a separate CMS, you might have a different Analytics
JavaScript file for this section. If you deploy the visitor ID on your main site before you deploy the visitor ID service
to the support site, new visitors will receive a legacy Analytics ID when they visit the support section, and visits that
span both site sections will be reported as different visits.
Deploying the visitor ID service on sites that are using multiple JavaScript files or other technologies (such as Flash)
can cause coordination issues since you need to enable the visitor ID service on all portions of your site at the same
time. By configuring a grace period, new visitors to continue to receive an Analytics visitor ID from the visitor ID
service, so visitors can be consistently identified on sections of your site that have not been upgraded to use the
visitor ID service.
7. Configure users and groups, and link user accounts
Once you are up and running, navigate to Administration > Admin Console, where you can administrate users
and groups (group mapping) for single sign-on.
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
28
Group management involves creating enterprise groups, then mapping them to solution groups.
See Users and Groups.
Customer Attributes
Important: To use the Customer Attributes feature, users must belong to the Adobe Customer Attributes
group in Manage users and groups in the Marketing Cloud, and to solution-level groups (Analytics or Target).
Users that are added to the Customer Attributes group will see the Customer Attributes menu item on the left side
of the Experience Cloud interface
8. Start using core services
Take advantage of the following core service features.
Getting Started with the Experience Cloud
29
Feature
Description
Customer attributes
If you capture enterprise customer data in a customer relationship
management (CRM) database, you can upload the data into a customer
attribute data source in the Experience Cloud. Once uploaded, leverage the
data in Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target.
See Customer Attributes
Audiences
Experience Cloud Audiences is the interface that lets you create audiences,
combine existing audiences to create composite audiences, and view all
shared audiences.
See Audiences.
Data Storage and Privacy Disclosure Information
Data storage and privacy disclosure for using the Adobe Master Marketing Profile.
If you leverage real-time audience profiling and other core services within the Adobe Experience Cloud (via the
Master Marketing Profile), use of these services might impact which data center (and country) your data resides.
Specifically, because the core services of the Adobe Experience Cloud leverage Adobe Audience Manager, data
used within the Master Marketing Profile must reside within Audience Manager servers in the United States.
When leveraging core services made available via the Master Marketing Profile, the types of data sent from other
Adobe products to audience management are:
• Analytics key/value pairs (props, eVars, list vars, and so on). By default, the log lines include IP address, including
the last octet of the IP (assuming that the IP address was not modified by IP obfuscation settings within Adobe
Analytics).
• Traits and segments that visitors qualify for based on rules set up in Audience Manager.
• (Optional) One or more of your IDs. Depending on your implementation of the ID service, you might also be sending
in one or more of your IDs, such as CRM IDs or hashed email addresses. If this data is sent into Adobe Analytics,
it is transferred to Adobe audience management.
Adobe recommends against providing personal data to Adobe Analytics. Rather, use a one-way hash to
pseudonymize the data before it is sent to Adobe.
• Segments originating in Analytics via the back-end segment sharing capability.
• The demdex.net cookie is set if third-party cookies are not blocked. The AMCV_###@AdobeOrg first-party cookie is
always set with the Experience Cloud ID (formerly, Visitor ID service).
All of these data elements are delivered to Adobe Audience Manager in the form of log files. Audience Manager
processes and stores this data within the United States. Audience Manager does not provide an option to store or
process this data outside of the United States.
Cookies and Opt-Outs
Use of real-time audience profiling leverages the Audience Manager cookie, in addition to the cookies used for
Analytics and Target.
If you want to provide the proper opt-out ability, visitors to your site must add the Audience Manager opt-out to your
existing opt-out process.

36
Question
Answer
Does Adobe charge my company for
Marketing Cloud access?
No. The Marketing Cloud is included at no additional charge. However,
certain core services might have additional costs.
Why does my company need to log in
The functionality provided by the Marketing Cloud interface adds new
through the Marketing Cloud interface? value to your business. It also will be the standard path for accessing
solutions going forward, eventually replacing other individual solution
login flows. Logging in through the Marketing Cloud will facilitate a
smoother transition later.
How do I resolve concerns about
migrating my company?
Contact Adobe Support.
What is provisioning?
Provisioning in the Marketing Cloud means:
• Your users can begin logging in to the Marketing Cloud and linking
solutions.
• They can begin to use the features available through the Marketing
cloud, such as Profiles & Audiences.
• You can become prepared to retire your solution-specific login process.
• You can retain access control to solutions.
How do I manage user accounts and
groups?
You administrate users and groups in the Admin Console.
To log in to the Marketing Cloud, users must:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Have an Adobe ID.
Sign in at <yourcompany>.marketing.adobe.com
Belong to a solution group that is mapped to an enterprise group.
Link their solution accounts to their Adobe ID.
Solution admins, see User and Product Management in the Admin Console
for help about mapping solution groups to broader Adobe groups, and to
bulk-add users.
What do I do if someone cannot log in
to the Marketing Cloud interface?
Contact Adobe Support to indicate that your company has not been fully
provisioned.
What do I do if account linking fails?

able to access the product from the Marketing Cloud or through the direct
login. You should also remove them at the Marketing Cloud level.
What is an Adobe ID?
An Adobe ID is the user's account for all Adobe solutions. Users create
their own Adobe IDs in the process of linking their solution accounts to
the Marketing Cloud.
As an Admin, you have control over password policies for your Marketing
Cloud users. Your users decide which email address they will use when
they create their Adobe ID. In the near future, you will be able to create
IDs for your users directly.
What does unlinking do?
If you unlink your solution, you cannot access your solution through the
Marketing Cloud. Linking again will need to occur to regain access through
the Marketing Cloud. Unlinking does not remove the solution account, so
users can still access the solution directly.
See Organizations and Account Settings
Where can a user go in the Marketing
Cloud to manage linking?
See Organizations and Account Settings
Can I link solution accounts for my
users?
No.
Users must link their own solutions with their user names and passwords.
Why do I see Social when my company Adobe Social is a product that can be sold with Analytics. Therefore, if

About Adobe IDs - Personal, Enterprise, and Federated IDs
Adobe uses an underlying identity management system to authenticate and authorize users for single sign-on. Adobe
currently supports three identity or account types, each using the email address as the user's name.
You can use enterprise IDs, federated IDs with single sign-on, and Adobe IDs in the same enterprise deployment.
For example, use Adobe IDs for users who may use other Adobe product and services. Use enterprise or federated
IDs for users where you want to strictly manage their accounts.
Before you create enterprise IDs or federated IDs, consider the impact on existing users. It is possible that users
have an Adobe ID with email addresses from your domain to access products and services from Adobe.
Descriptions of Identity Types
Administration and User Management
41
Identity Type
Description
Adobe ID
End users create, own, and manage their Adobe IDs, and Adobe performs the authentication.
End users create, own, and manage their Adobe IDs and maintain complete control over files
and data associated with their ID. They can purchase additional products and services from
Adobe using this ID. Administrators can invite these users to join a Marketing Cloud
organization, as well as remove them from an organization. However, users cannot be locked
out from their Adobe ID accounts, and the accounts cannot be deleted or taken over by the
administrator.
Use Adobe IDs in the following scenarios:
• You want to enable users to create, own, and manage their identities.
• You want to allow users to purchase or sign up for other Adobe products and services.
• If you expect users to use other Adobe services, such as Acrobat.com and Digital Publishing
Suite, which do not currently support enterprise or federated IDs.
• If users already have Adobe IDs and associated data, such as files, fonts, or settings.
• In educational setups, where students can retain their Adobe ID after they graduate.
• If you have contractors and freelancers who do not use your corporate email address.
Enterprise ID
Enterprise ID is created, owned, and managed by an organization. Adobe hosts the enterprise
ID and performs authentication, but the organization maintains the enterprise ID. End users
cannot sign up and create an enterprise ID, nor can they sign up for additional products and
services from Adobe using an enterprise ID.
Administrators create an enterprise ID and issue it to a user. Administrators can revoke
access to products and services by taking over the account, or by deleting the enterprise ID
to permanently block access to associated data.
Enterprise IDs are recommended in the following scenarios:
• If you need to maintain strict control over apps and services available to a user.
• If you need emergency access to files and data associated with an ID.
• If you need the ability to completely block or delete a user account.
Federated ID
Federated ID is created and owned by an organization. It is linked to the enterprise directory
via federation. The organization manages credentials and processes single sign-on via a
SAML2 identity provider.
Federated IDs are recommended in the following scenarios:
• You want to provision users based your organization's enterprise directory.
• You want to manage user authentication.
• You need to maintain strict control over apps and services available to a user.
• You want to allow users to use the same email address to sign up for an Adobe ID.
For more about identity management, see Managing Identity Types.

• Add a User
• Create a Group
• User Login Requirements
Add a User
The User Management page displays users who are members of your organization, as well as the products and
services to which they are entitled. You can add users and assign users to groups.
1. Click Administration > Launch Admin Console.
2. Click User Management > Users.
3. Click Add.
4. Specify the user's email address, then configure the following fields:
• The user's account will be: If the user's email domain has been claimed by the system admin for either
Enterprise or Federated IDs, the admin can choose the ID type when inviting the user. If the domain is not
claimed, you would only be able to invite users having Adobe IDs. Because a domain can be claimed only for
either Enterprise or Federated IDs (and not both), the three sets of options possible here are:
• Adobe ID
• Adobe ID or Enterprise ID
• Adobe ID or Federated ID
Only a system admin can claim a domain (or submit a trustee request if the domain has already been claimed
by a different organization.
• Product Access: Lets you select available product groups to which you can add the user.
• User groups: Lets you add this person to a group, such as an Admin group, or a group with access to specific
products.
• Admin Rights: (Optional) Lets you grant administrative rights to specific products to the user.
After adding a user, an email is sent to the new user.
See Add product configurations for information about adding product configurations and adding users and
administrators to the configuration.
Create a Group
Create user groups in the Marketing Cloud.
1. In the Admin Console, click User Groups.
2. On Create a User Group, name the group and provide a description.
3. Add product configurations
This lets you add permissions to products and services for the group.
User Login Requirements
To log in to the Marketing Cloud, users must:
1. Have an Adobe ID.
Administration and User Management
43
2. Sign in at <yourcompany>.marketing.adobe.com
3. Belong to a solution group that is mapped to an enterprise group.
4. Link their solution accounts to their Adobe ID.
When an organization has both Creative Cloud and Marketing Cloud, their administrators can manage user access
across all products. For example, a creative director can be granted the same super admin rights as an IT admin
and is not prevented from distributing Marketing Cloud products to users. Organizations can assign administrators
to a specific solution (or set of solutions and products), enabling those admins to distribute access to only those
solutions or products.
You can set up group mapping between a solution permission group (such as Analytics) and a broader Adobe group
created in the Adobe Admin Console.
See Admin Console to learn about group mapping and adding multiple users to an enterprise group.
After group mapping is ready, a new user added to the enterprise group will have his solution account automatically
created and linked to his user's Adobe ID. (Existing users can manually link their solution account credentials.)
Note: You can map several solution groups to one Admin Console group. However, Adobe recommends 1:1
mapping.
Add product configurations
Add product configurations to the Marketing Cloud, add users, and grant limited administrative rights to users of a
product configuration.
A product configuration is a representation of a product you purchased, or a configuration associated with a login
company.
Marketing Cloud product configurations enable you to configure user access to products and core services. You
can also delegate limited administrative rights to users of the product configuration.
For example, in your Analytics log-in company, you can create an Activity Map product configuration and delegate
administrative rights to a specific user.
Note: Adding administrators to a product configuration does not grant those users administrative rights at the
solution level.
After you add users or administrators, they receive an email notifying them that they have access to the product
configuration. Administrators are notified that they can participate in the management of the product.
To add a product configuration
1. Configure solution group permissions.
If you are an existing solution administrator, you likely already performed this step. For example, a solution group
for Analytics is created in Analytics > Admin Tools > User Management > Edit Groups.
2. In the Marketing Cloud, click Administration, then click Launch Admin Console.
3. In Admin Console, click Products.

A description you can enter to help you identify the product.
The permission group for this product configuration. Adobe Marketing Cloud offerings are
generally organized into permission groups pertaining to Marketing Cloud solution-specific
capabilities. While setting up product configurations for Marketing Cloud, instead of disabling
access to services, you select a solution-specific permission group that applies to the
product configuration you are creating.
6. Click the Users tab to add users to this configuration.
In the example screen above, users added to this configuration would have access to Activity Map.
7. (Optional) To grant limited administrative rights to a user, click Admin.
See Delegate administrative roles to users for more information about limited administrative rights.
8. Click Save.
Delegate administrative roles to users
Using Admin Roles in the Admin Console, administrators can delegate limited administrative rights to others in your
organization.
You can define sub-administrators in the Admin Console. These roles enable users to administer software access
to end users, provide access deployment capabilities, and function as support delegates.
For example:
• Allow your creative director to grant access to Creative Cloud.
• Allow your marketing director to grant access to the Marketing Cloud.
• Keep these two roles separate so they cannot overstep each other's roles.
By using these roles, you can simultaneously delegate management to others without providing more capability than
they need.
See Admin Roles and the Admin Roles FAQ in Enterprise Help.

Marketing Cloud - Administrate Users and Groups
Marketing Cloud and core services are available to Analytics Standard and Premium users, provided that you have
followed the implementation modernization described in Enabling Solutions for Core Services. (That process helps
you modernize your implementation, and enables you to become and administrator in the Marketing Cloud.)
After you join the Marketing Cloud, you can log in via the Marketing Cloud at
<yourcompany>.marketing.adobe.com and begin using core services (including customer attributes, audiences,
and Mobile app analytics).
Administrate Users and Groups
User management is performed in the Adobe Admin Console (product link).
You can set up a 1:1 map between a group created in the Adobe Admin Console and a solution group (such as
Adobe Analytics). Thereafter, a new user added to the mapped Admin Console group will have an Analytics solution
account automatically created and linked to the user's Adobe ID. (Existing users must manually link their solution
account credentials to access solutions via the Marketing Cloud login.)
Note: You can map several solution groups to one Admin Console group. However, Adobe recommends 1:1
mapping. Mapping the groups ahead of time allows you to invite, create, permission, and add multiple users
by uploading a CSV.
For help about users and groups, see Manage users and groups in the Marketing Cloud.
Using DNS Prefetch with Different Solutions and Services
Implement DNS prefetch to help reduce page load times with different solutions and services.
Contents:
Understanding DNS Prefetch
DNS Prefetch and Adobe Experience Cloud Solutions
DNS Prefetch Code Samples
Understanding DNS Prefetch
Browsers use DNS prefetch to automatically resolve domain names linked on a Web page to their corresponding
IP addresses. The prefetch process starts when your browser loads a web page. As an example, say your page
Administration and User Management
49
contains a clickable link to www.adobe.com. When a browser loads this page, it uses the DNS system to look up
the linked domain name and resolve it to a corresponding numeric IP address. DNS prefetch helps improve page
performance because the domain name is already resolved to an IP address before a site visitor clicks that link or
button. The DNS prefetch process is transparent to the users.
DNS Prefetch and Adobe Experience Cloud Solutions
DNS prefetch works automatically with static, embedded links on a page. This also means automatic DNS prefetch
doesn’t work with different Experience Cloud solutions and services because:
• Each Experience Cloud solution or service generates DNS calls dynamically as the page loads.
• The browser can't resolve domain names to IP address before these calls are made.
However, you can manually implement DNS prefetch with your Experience Cloud solutions. You do this by adding
the HTML <dns-prefetch> tag to the <head> section of your page code as shown below. When implemented
properly, DNS prefetch can help save a few milliseconds of page load time.
DNS Prefetch Code Samples
The following examples show you how to make DNS prefetch calls to different Experience Cloud solutions and
services. Some prefetch calls require your Adobe Organization ID or tracking server information. In these examples,
the code in italics represents a variable placeholder. You would replace that code with your own Adobe partner ID,
customer code, or tracking server information, etc.

Assets and Sharing
Experience Cloud Assets provide a single, centralized repository of marketing-ready assets that you can share
across solutions. An asset is a digital document, image, video, or audio (or part thereof) that can have multiple
renditions and can have sub-assets (for example, layers in a Photoshop file, slides in a PowerPoint file, pages in a
PDF, files in a ZIP).
Asset services include:
• Asset storage, management interface, embedded selection interface (accessed through solutions).

Behavior of Shared Folders
Rules for how shared folders behave when moved, deleted, and restored.
• Unshared Folder into Shared Folder
• Shared Folder into Unshared Folder
• Content from Unshared Folder into Shared Folder
• Archived and Deleted Shared Content
• Owned Shared Content to an Unshared Folder
• Unowned Content to an Unshared Folder
• Archived or Deleted Owned Folder
• Shared Folder into another Shared Folder
• Shared Content to another Shared Folder
• Restored Content from Archive
Note: Shared Experience Cloud folders and assets are mirrored to the Creative Cloud desktop in a 1:1
relationship. If a Experience Cloud user changes a folder (deletes, adds, or removes sharing), the action is
mirrored in the Creative Cloud desktop and web. As such, if a folder is unshared, the folder and assets are
deleted from your local machine. After sharing is removed, the folder and its contents are moved to the trash
can on your local computer, where you can manually restore them to your machine.
Assets and Sharing
Unshared Folder into Shared Folder
You move an unshared folder into a shared folder:
Result: Both folders become shared.
Shared Folder into Unshared Folder
You move a shared folder into an unshared folder.
Result: The unshared folder remains unshared. The shared folder remains shared.
Content from Unshared Folder into Shared Folder
You move content from an unshared folder into a shared folder.
Result: The content is now shared and all collaborators can see it. Storage increases by the size of the content.
Archived and Deleted Shared Content
You archive or delete content that resides in a shared folder.
61
Assets and Sharing
62
Result: Content is archived for the owner of the folder. Collaborators who do not own the content can no longer
access it.
Owned Shared Content to an Unshared Folder
You move content from a shared folder that you own into an unshared folder.
Result: The content is now unshared. The collaborators of the shared folder no longer have access to the content.
Unowned Content to an Unshared Folder
You move content from shared folder owned by someone else into an unshared folder.
Result: The content appears in the unshared folder and is removed from the shared folder. The collaborators of the
shared folder no longer have access to the content. The content is archived for the owner of the shared folder.
Owners and editors can move content which they do not own, but viewers cannot. If owners and editors move
content, it is not available in a shared folder for any user.
Archived or Deleted Owned Folder
You archive (via web) or delete (via desktop) a shared folder that you own.
Assets and Sharing
Result: The folder is unshared, then archived. The collaborators no longer have access to the folder.
Shared Folder into another Shared Folder
You move a shared folder that you own into another shared folder that you may or may not own.
Result: As the folder is moved into Folder 2, it becomes shared with the new collaborators.
Shared Content to another Shared Folder
You move content from a shared folder into another shared folder.
Result: The content appears in Folder 2 and is now shared with new collaborators. The content is removed from
Folder 1 and the owner sees it as archived, while the other collaborators no longer have access to it.
Restored Content from Archive
You restore content from an archive that belonged to a shared folder. You owned the content at the time it was
archived.
63
Assets and Sharing
Result: The content is restored to the shared folder and all collaborators can access it again. If the shared folder
no longer exists, the content is put into an unshared copy of its original parent folder(s).

Audiences
The Profiles & Audiences core service lets you create audiences, combine existing audiences to create composite
audiences, and view all shared audiences.
Click here to request access to Profiles and Audiences.

• What Are Audiences?
• Audiences - Interface Descriptions
• How to define an audience
• Implement audiences (core services)
Note: If you need IP obfuscation, ensure that you indicate this on your request form.
What Are Audiences?
Audiences are collections of visitors (a list of visitor IDs). Adobe's audience services manage the translation of visitor
data into audience segmentation. As such, creating and managing audiences is similar to creating and using
segments, with the added ability to share the audience segment to the Experience Cloud.
Audiences can be created or derived from various sources, such as:
• New ones created in the Experience Cloud
• From Analytics segments published to the Experience Cloud
• From Audience Manager
Real-Time vs. Historical Audiences
All audiences, regardless of where they are sourced, are accessible for real-time targeting use cases. The system
evaluates audiences in two ways:
• Historical audiences are sourced from analytics are evaluated every 12 hours. Historical audiences always include
return visitors.
• Real-time audiences are sourced in the Experience Cloud Audiences are evaluated real time.
How Solutions Use Audiences
The following table describes how audiences are used in Experience Cloud solutions:
Audiences
66
Solution
Description
Experience Cloud Audiences
Create, manage, and share audiences natively using the Audiences interface. You
can:
• Use real-time audiences using raw analytics attributes
• Combine audiences to create composite ones, joining real-time and historical
data
• See graphical views of estimated audiences size
For suggestions about what type of audience you want to create see: Experience
Cloud Audiences.
Analytics
In segmentation, you can build a segment, combine it with a report suite, and then
publish the segment to the Experience Cloud.
Publishing the segment displays it on the Audiences page. The audience is also
available as a targeted audience for a campaign experience delivered by Adobe
Target, and in Audience Manager.
Once an audience is shared from Analytics, and selected for use in an active
campaign, all of the visitor profiles who met the segment definition criteria for the
past 90 days are sent to the Experience Cloud Audience Services platform.
Important: You must limit the number of audiences shared from Analytics
to 20 to avoid additional processing delays. Audiences shared to the
Experience Cloud from Analytics cannot exceed 20 million unique members.
Also, due to caching, deleted report suites in Analytics require 12 hours before
the deletion is shown in the Experience Cloud.
Mobile Services
Analyze mobile traffic using the sunburst visualization in the Device Types report.
Target
The ID service unifies visitor IDs and data into a single, actionable profile for use
across solutions.
The Publish to the Experience Cloud checkbox during the segment creation process
in Adobe Analytics allows the segment to be available within the Adobe Target's
custom audience library. A segment created in Analytics or Audience Manager can
be used for activities in Target.
For example, you can create campaign activities based on Analytics conversion
metrics and audience segments created in Analytics.
Audience Manager
Shared audiences are available in Audience Manager segmentation. All Experience
Cloud audiences are available natively in Audience Manager, which provides:
• Built-in automation regarding how they are shared and consumed in solution
workflows
• Offsite destinations
• Look-alike modeling
Audiences

Solution
Description
Campaign
Integration between Adobe Campaign and Profiles & Audiences allows you to:
• Import shared audiences from different Adobe Experience Cloud solutions into
Adobe Campaign.
• Export recipient lists in the form of shared audiences. These shared audiences
can be used in the different Adobe Experience Cloud solutions that you use.
For information about the integration between Adobe Campaign and Profiles &
Audiences, see Introduction to Profiles & Audiences in Campaign.
Media Optimizer
Use the audience as targets.
Important: Once a visitor qualifies for the audience shared from Analytics, there is a 24 - 48 hour delay before
that information is actionable in Target, Media Optimizer, and Campaign.

activity in Target, Analytics begins sending IDs for visitors that qualify for that
Marketing Cloud and Target audience. At that point, the audience name and
corresponding data begins displaying on the Marketing Cloud Audiences
page.
Note: Audiences shared to the Marketing Cloud from Analytics cannot
exceed 20 million audience members.
Note: Due to caching, deleted report suites in Analytics require 12
hours before the deletion is shown in the Marketing Cloud.
In Analytics, you can edit or delete a published segment. If the segment is in
use, a warning message is issued when you edit a segment. You cannot
delete a published segment that is in use by Adobe Target.

Data Privacy
Audiences are not filtered based on the authentication state of a visitor. If a
visitor can browse your site in un-authenticated and authenticated states,
actions that occur when a visitor is un-authenticated can still cause a visitor
to be included in an audience. Review Analytics Privacy Overview to
understand the full privacy implications of audience sharing.

Create and audience
Learn how to use attribute rules to create an audience and define a composite audience in the Marketing Cloud.
Audiences > Audience Library
This article helps you understand how to:
• Create an audience
• Create a rule
• Use rules to define a composite audience
The following graphic represents two rules in a composite audience.
Each circle represents a rule that defines audience membership. Visitors that qualify as members in both audience
rules overlap to become the composite, defined audience.
Audiences
Note: The audience is fully defined after data collection for the specified period completes.
The following example shows how to create the rules for a composite audience. This audience is comprised of:
• Home & Garden section derived from page data, or raw analytics data.
• Chrome and Safari users derived from an Adobe Analytics segment published to the Marketing Cloud.
1. In the Marketing Cloud, click Profiles & Audiences > Audience Library.
2. On the Audiences page, click New.
70
Audiences
71
3. On the Create New Audience page, specify a title and description.
4. Under Rules, select an attribute source:
•
Raw Analytics Data: This is attribute data derived from real-time Analytics image requests, and includes
data such as eVars and events.
You must select a report suite when using this attribute source, and define the dimension or event to include.
This report suite selection provides the variable structure used by the report suite.
Note: Due to caching, deleted report suites in Analytics require 12 hours before the deletion is shown
in the Marketing Cloud.
•
Marketing Cloud: Attribute data derived from the Marketing Cloud sources. For example, this can be data
from audience segments you create in Analytics (marketing reports & analytics, ad hoc analysis, report builder),
and data from Audience Manager.
5. Define audience rules.
Note: You should have an understanding of your implementation variables when defining audience rules.
Under Rules, define the Home & Garden attribute selections:
• Attribute Source: Raw Analytics Data
• Report Suite: Report Suite 31
• Dimension = Store (Merch) (v6) > Equals > Home & Garden
The Chrome & Safari Visitors is an audience segment shared from Analytics:
• Attribute Source: Marketing Cloud
• Dimension: Chrome & Safari Visitors
Audiences
For comparison, you might add an OR rule to see all visitors to a site section, such as Patio & Furniture.
6. View the results.
The resulting rule is a defined audience comprising Chrome & Safari users who visited Home & Garden. The
Patio & Furniture segment provides additional insight into all visitors visiting that site section.
72

Historical Estimate: (Dotted circle) Represents rules created based on Analytics data.
Actual Audience: (Solid circle) Any rule created that has 30 days of data from Audience Manager. When the
Audience Manager data reaches 30 days, the line becomes solid and represents actual numbers.
After the data collection completes for the specified period, the circles combine to show a defined audience.
7. After defining the rules, click Save.
After the audience is saved, it is available for other solutions. For example, you can include a shared audience
in a Target activity.

If you capture enterprise customer data in a customer relationship management (CRM) database, you can upload
the data into a customer attribute data source in the Experience Cloud. Once uploaded, leverage the data in Adobe
Analytics and Adobe Target.
Topics covered on this page:
• Prerequisites for Uploading Customer Attributes
• What Is Enterprise Customer Data?
• Solution Use Cases
Prerequisites for Uploading Customer Attributes
• Solution enablement: Enable your solutions for core services.
• Group membership: To upload customer attribute data, users must be members of the Customer Attributes group.
You must also belong to either an Adobe Analytics group or an Adobe Target group.
To know whether your company has access to customer attributes, your Experience Cloud administrator should
log into the Experience Cloud. Navigate to Administration > Launch Admin Console > Groups. If Customer
Attributes displays as one of the groups, you are ready to begin.
Users that are added to the Customer Attributes group will see the Customer Attributes menu item on the left
side of the Experience Cloud interface.

What Is Enterprise Customer Data?
Enterprise data resides in other systems. It can be complex and mean different things to different people. This data
can include information such as memberships, loyalty level, age, gender, products owned, interests, and Lifetime
Value.
The following image is an example of a data file showing subscriber data for products, including member IDs, entitled
products, most-launched products, and so on.
After you create the data file, you can upload it to the customer attribute source that you create in Experience Cloud
> Customer Attributes.
See Upload Customer Attribute Data to learn this workflow.
Solution Use Cases
After the data resides in the Experience Cloud, you can customize it and share it to solutions for reporting,
segmentation, activities, and campaigns.
For example:
Solution
Adobe Analytics
Advantages and Use Cases
Marketers and analysts can understand:
• The online campaigns that are most effective with your gold-level customers.
• The products that gold-level customers search for versus products that platinum-level
customers search for.
• Whether your site redesign is having a positive impact on conversion rates for older
customers.
• Which products do customers with a low lifetime value tend to research on my site.
Adobe Target
Attribute data enables Target users to:
• Show loyalty club members special discounts and offers.
• Recommend more expensive products to your luxury customers.
• For customers who already receive emails, show an upsell offer in the space normally
reserved for email signups

Frequently Asked Questions about Customer Attributes
FAQ for customer attributes in Analytics and Target.
Question
Answer
What should I do to get started with
customer attributes?
1. Get provisioned.
If you are an Analytics customer, Adobe is provisioning you for
customer attributes. If you use only Target and do not have Analytics,
you must request provisioning for core services by contacting Customer
Care.
2. Have a conversation with your CRM team. Find out what kind of
customer data is available that would be interesting for use in Analytics
and throughout the Experience Cloud.
3. Implement core services.
See Enabling Solutions for Core Services for steps on how to
modernize your implementation for core services. (See the section
about synching customer IDs for important information.)
Note: An administrator's FAQ for implementing core services is available
here.
How many customer attributes am I
allowed to use?
You can upload hundreds of .csv columns to the customer attribute
service. However, when configuring subscriptions and selecting attributes,
the following limits apply depending on the solutions you own:
• Analytics Standard: 3 total
• Analytics Premium: 200 per report suite
• Target Standard: 5
• Target Premium: 200
Is migrating to the Experience Cloud ID Migration depends on the solutions you use.
Service required?
• Adobe Analytics: Strongly recommended
• Adobe Target: Required.

Question
Answer
How does the customer attribute
functionality relate to Adobe Audience
Manager?
While Audience Manager can receive data to perform audience
identification, it cannot perform analytics functionality that ties attributes
to historical behavioral data or provide the reporting, analysis, and
segmentation capabilities that are available in Adobe Analytics. The
Profiles & Audiences core service enables rich data from across solutions
to be tied together and associated with a single ID for use across the
Marketing Cloud.
In Adobe Target, customer attributes appear as individual attributes that
can be combined with other rules to build audiences. Audiences shared
in the Profiles & Audiences core service are full audiences that cannot
be modified.
(Analytics only) How is this functionality In the past, customers interested in combining customer attribute data

this functionality. Customer attributes exposes this functionality to a wider
audience by providing customer attributes as dimensions and metrics in
reports & analytics, ad hoc analysis, and report builder. Analytics Standard
customers will have access to customer attributes, but with limited

customers.

(Target only) How does the customer
attributes functionality compare to
Target's bulk profile API?
The bulk profile API enables Target profiles to be updated directly via the
API, either for an individual profile or in bulk. The capability is similar to
customer attributes, with the following key differences:
• The profile API is a REST API call and customer attributes uses FTP.
• Target's profile API only sends data to Target instead of to the whole
Marketing Cloud.
• Customer attributes provides a simple interface to create and manage
this external data.

About data file and data sources for customer attributes
Data file requirements and multiple data sources for uploading customer attributes to the Experience Cloud.
You will need access to CRM or similar data from your enterprise. The data you upload to the Experience Cloud
must be a .csv file. If you upload via FTP or sFTP, you also upload a .fin file.
• Allowed File Types and Naming Requirements
• Requirements for the Attribute Data Files
• Leveraging Multiple Data Sources
Allowed File Types and Naming Requirements
File Type
Description
.csv
A comma-separated values file (such as one created in Excel). This is the file that contains
the customer attribute data.
Naming requirements: Ensure that file name extensions do not contain white spaces.
.fin
(Required) The .fin file tells the system that you are finished uploading data. The name of
the .fin file must match the name of the .csv file.
Adobe recommends creating an empty text file with a .fin extension. An empty file saves
space and upload time.
Note: Renaming a .fin file is not allowed after it is uploaded. The .fin file must be
uploaded separately and cannot be a renamed, previously uploaded file.
After you upload the .fin file in the customer attributes FTP, the system retrieves data
quickly (within one minute). This differs from other Adobe FTP-based systems, which pick
up data less frequently (around once per hour).
The .fin file is not required when using the drag-and-drop upload method.
.gz or .zip
.gz (gzip) or .zip - for compressed files. A .zip file cannot contain more than one file in
the archive.
Profiles and Audiences
File Type
82
Description
Naming requirements: The name of the .zip or .gz should match the name of the .csv.
For example, if your .csv file is crm_small.csv, the .zip file should be
crm_small.csv.zip.
The .fin file must match the .csv.
Requirements for the Attribute Data Files
Example CSV
The CSV file must adhere to the following format:
Sample CSV:

Description
Drag-and-drop
The drag-and-drop file should be less than 100 megabytes.
The .fin file is not required when using the drag-and-drop upload method.
Customer ID column
The first column must be a unique customer ID. The ID used should correspond to
the ID that is being passed to the Experience Cloud ID Service.
For Analytics, the ID being stored in a prop or eVar.
For Target, the setCustomerID value. (Required. See )
This customer ID is the unique identifier your CRM uses for each person in your
database. The remaining columns are attributes that come from your CRM. You will
choose how many attributes to upload.
Profiles and Audiences
Item
83
Description
Friendly, readable names are recommended for the column headings, but not
required. When you validate the schema after upload, you can map friendly names
to the uploaded rows and columns.
About Customer IDs
Typically, an enterprise uses a customer ID from a CRM system. This ID is set using
the setCustomerIDs call when a person logs in. This ID is also used as the key in
the CRM file that is uploaded to the Experience Cloud. An Alias ID is a friendly name
for a data store in Audience Manager, where the alias data is stored. The system
sends aliases to this data store (via setCustomerIDs). The CRM file is applied to the
data in that data store.
For setCustomerIDs information, see Customer IDs and Authentication States.
Subsequent headers and
columns
Subsequent headers should represent the name of each attribute.
Attribute limits
You can upload hundreds of .csv columns to the customer attribute service in the
Experience Cloud. However, when configuring subscriptions and selecting attributes,
the following limits apply depending on the solutions you own:
These columns should contain customer attributes that come from the CRM.
• Analytics Standard: 3 total
• Analytics Premium: 200 per report suite
• Target Standard: 5
• Target Premium: 200
Row limits
There is no known limit to the number of rows.
Column Limits
For practicality, limit the number of columns to around 200.
FTP Guidelines and size
limitations
• File size limit for FTP is 4 GB for each upload.
• You should drop your .csv (and .fin) file in the root folder of the FTP site.
Important: The total allowed space for the FTP account is 40 GB. It is your
responsibility to delete processed files.
File requirements
Each attribute source should contain the same number of comma-separated fields.
Fields containing a line-break, double-quote, or commas must be quoted.
Double-quote characters in a field must be escaped using a backslash (\).
Blank columns are stored as null.
Character Encoding
For Japan, UTF-8 is mandatory.

Description
Historical data
Customer attributes are tied to the underlying visitor profile in Analytics. As such,
customer attributes are associated with the visitor for the entire life of that visitor
profile in Analytics. This includes behavior that occurred before the customer logged
in for the first time.
If you use the data warehouse backfill method, the data is tied to a post_visid_high/low
that is based on the Analytics ID (AID). If you are using the Experience Cloud ID
service, the data is tied to a post_visid_high/low that is based on Experience Cloud
ID (MID).
Data feeds
Customer attributes are not available in data feeds.
Leveraging Multiple Data Sources
When creating, modifying, or deleting customer attribute sources, there is a delay around one hour before IDs begin
synchronizing with the new data source.
The Alias ID for each customer attribute source must be unique. If you have multiple data sources that leverage the
same ID, they should be set up as follows:
In VisitorAPI.js or the Experience Cloud ID tool in dynamic tag management:
Set two customer IDs that will correspond to the appropriate data sources:
Visitor.setCustomerIDs({
"ds_id1”:"123456",
"ds_id2":"123456"
});
(See Customer IDs and Authentication States for more information.)
In the Experience Cloud > Audiences > Customer Attributes:
Create two customer attributes sources using unique alias IDs corresponding to the customer IDs above. Using this
method allows the same reference ID to be sent to multiple customer attribute sources
Create a customer attribute source and upload the data file
Create the customer attribute source and upload the data. You also activate the data source when you are ready.

The value that is entered in the Alias ID field for a customer attribute source in the
Marketing Cloud UI should match the values that are being passed in from the
implementation (whether via dynamic tag management or JavaScript of the Mobile SDK.)
The Alias ID corresponds to certain areas where you set additional Customer ID values.
For example:
• Dynamic tag management: The Alias ID corresponds to the Integration Code value
under Customer Settings, in the Marketing Cloud ID Service tool.
• Visitor API: The Alias ID corresponds to the additional Customer IDs that you can
associate with each visitor.
For example, "crm_id" in:
"crm_id":"67312378756723456"
• iOS: The Alias ID corresponds to "idType" in visitorSyncIdentifiers:identifiers.
For example:
[ADBMobile visitorSyncIdentifiers:@{@"idType":@"idValue"}];
• Android: The Alias ID corresponds to "idType" in syncIdentifiers.
For example:
identifiers.put("idType", "idValue");
See Leveraging Multiple Data Sources for additional information about data processing
regarding the Alias ID field and Customer IDs.
File Upload
You can drag-and-drop the .csv data file, or upload the data via FTP. (Using FTP also
requires a .fin file.) See Upload the Data via FTP.

Optional - Upload the data file via FTP
If you do not upload using drag-and-drop, you can upload customer attribute data via FTP to the Marketing Cloud.
You can upload the data after you create a customer attribute source and an FTP account in the Marketing Cloud.
You create one FTP account per attribute source. The uploaded files are stored in the root folder of that account.
The data must be in .csv format, with a second .fin file to indicate the upload is complete.
Important: Review About data file and data sources for customer attributes before uploading the file.
File uploads to the customer attributes FTP site can be done via FTP or SFTP.
• You need a client that supports SFTP connections.
• You can connect with SFTP using either username/password or using no password, as described here.
To upload the data file via FTP
1. Create a customer attribute source and upload the data file.
Ensure that you are logged in to your FTP site at ftp.adobe.com/<sftpname>.
2. Click Actions > File Upload.
3. Upload a .fin file, so that your file can be retrieved.

Privacy Considerations - Customer Attributes
Considerations and best practices regarding personally identifiable information (PII) uploaded and used in the Adobe
Marketing Cloud.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) databases often contain PII. The definition of PII varies from region to
region. Generally, PII means identifiable information about an individual consumer that is collected online by the
operator from that individual. PII data is maintained by the operator in an accessible form, including attributes like:
such as first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address, a telephone number, a social
security number, or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual.
• First and last name
• Home or other physical address
• Email address
• Telephone number
• Social Security Number
• Other identifier that permits physical or online contacting of an individual. (Varies by location. Please verify and
comply with local laws and regulations related to privacy and PII for all of the places where you do business.)
Adobe provides tools that allow advertisers to collect behavioral information about consumers that visit their sites
or use their applications. Adobe also provides tools allow advertisers to enhance this information with offline or
external customer records that the advertiser may have within other information management systems.
One common reason advertisers do this is to improve the information available when making consumer-appropriate
marketing and advertising decisions. Adobe Analytics and Target allow advertisers to upload personally identifiable
information (PII), such as email addresses, only after it has been hashed to make it impossible to use for contacting
the individual. Hashed information can still be used for analysis and for marketing purposes. As a reminder, Adobe
prohibits advertisers from sending sensitive personal information to Adobe, such as medical records, financial account
information, and information about minors.
Adobe realizes that these types of marketing and advertising decisions may have consumer privacy implications,
which is why Adobe has built in privacy controls to help advertisers meet their consumers' expectations. Adobe
recommends its advertisers carefully consider which information is appropriate to use for marketing purposes and
in which circumstances the advertiser has permission to use such information.
Profiles and Audiences
95
Best Practices
When uploading PII to Adobe Analytics or Target, Adobe recommends that the customer hashes PII prior to uploading
it to Adobe. Hashed information can still be used for analysis and for marketing purposes. As a reminder, Adobe
prohibits advertisers from sending sensitive personal information to Adobe Analytics and Target, such as medical
records, financial account information, and information about minors.
Adobe recommends its advertisers carefully consider which information is appropriate to use for marketing purposes
and in which circumstances the advertiser has permission to use such information.
As consumer privacy law remains in flux, Adobe recommends that advertisers respect three common tenets:
1. Do what you say (in your privacy policy).
2. Say what you do (in your privacy policy).
3. Do not surprise your consumers.
With these expectations in mind, Adobe recommends that when an advertiser associates browsing activities to PII,
the advertiser provides notices or personalization indicating that the consumer is authenticated. An example of this
is including a greeting within the header of the website. Adobe also recommends that advertisers describe in its
privacy policy what type of browsing information it associates with PII and under what circumstances browsing
information is associated with PII. Lastly, Adobe strongly recommends advertisers review the opt-out choices they
provide their consumers to understand whether and how they can use unauthenticated profile information post opt
out.

Propensity Scoring
Understand customers' tendency to return after abandoning a shopping cart.
Propensity scoring is built into Marketing Cloud Triggers and available for Abandonment triggers.
For example, some customers abandon shopping carts to take advantage of email incentives to return to the cart.
To reduce the loss of revenue, the Propensity Scoring algorithm helps identify the relevant cart abandoners who
would likely not return without the incentive.
You can:
• Avoid over-exposing your customers to re-marketing.
• Identify the right cart-abandon customers and map their activity to the right message.
• Increase revenue by knowing which customers will and will not return.

The Value of Propensity Scoring
You can perform data discovery to identify hidden behaviors or patterns that exists across your data. Specifically,
propensity scoring helps you identify clusters of similar customers using more focused and objective means rather
than simple segmentation or filtering. In addition, propensity scoring lets you set up predictive capabilities to identify
behavior for your company's high-value customer.
Once you have identified the high-value audience, you can then engage them for the greatest effect. For example,
if you are business-to-business company, you may have sales call leads that allow you to then score the leads and
identify their likelihood to convert offline. Because every lead increases costs, creating an incentive to identify
prospective customers with the highest likelihood of converting a sale is the most effective and the least expensive
way to focus your resources.
Propensity scoring provides the ability to identify those factors that are most predictive of a particular score or to
increase the likelihood of an event taking place, but it can also be applied to answer specific questions:
• Will the customer convert?
• Will the customer respond to an email?
• Will the customer repurchase?
Propensity scoring lets you answer these questions and identify visitors with an inclination for action that can then
be set up and scored.

About Organizations
A Marketing Cloud organization is the entity that enables an administrator to configure groups and users, and to
control single sign-on in the Marketing Cloud. The organization functions like a log-in company that spans all the
Marketing Cloud products and solutions. Most often, an organization is your company name. However, a company
can have many organizations.
The organization you are logged into displays in the header:
Organizations are configured by administrators and Adobe.
Default Organization and Landing Page
You can specify a default organization and landing page to use when you log in.
Edit Profile > Manage Organizations
Under Default Organization & Landing Page, you can customize your log-in experience.
Account Linking
Existing users might need to link a solution account with their Adobe ID. When users select a solution, the system
locates accounts based on your login information. Linked solutions show colored solution icons, and unlinked solutions
are grey. If your solution account is not linked to your Adobe ID, you are prompted to link your account after clicking
the solution.

Map report suites to an organization
Learn how to map one or multiple report suites to an organization.
Marketing Cloud services (such as Marketing Cloud ID service and Profiles & Audiences) are associated with an
organization instead of an individual report suite. To ensure that these services operate correctly, each Analytics
report suite must be mapped to an organization. The mapping process:
• Sets a Marketing Cloud organization as the primary organization for the report suite.
• Does not change who can access a report suite (access is still determined by the Adobe Analytics login account
for each user)
Requirements
You must be an Analytics administrator of a login company that has access to the report suite you want to map.
Additionally, this account must be linked to a Marketing Cloud organization in order to map report suites to that
organization.
Organizations are grayed out if you do not have Analytics administrator permissions for a login company under that
organization that has access to the given report suite.
To map a report suite to an organization
1. Click Marketing Cloud > Administration > Report Suite Mapping.
You can also use a Direct URL.
2. To see the login companies that have access to each report suite, click Visible to Login Companies.
This view is intended to help you make an informed decision on the mapping.
3. Click the drop-down in the Mapped Organization column next to a report suite and select the organization to
which you want to map. See Tips for Selecting a Marketing Cloud Organization.

1. Click Marketing Cloud > Administration > Report Suite Mapping.

3. Select the organization (Outdoors Inc, in this example), then click Select.
See Tips for Selecting a Marketing Cloud Organization.
4. Click Save Mapping.
Tips for Selecting a Marketing Cloud Organization
This section contains tips to help you select the Marketing Cloud organization to which you should map a report
suite.
Which organization should I choose?
If the Marketing Cloud ID service is currently deployed on the report suite, ensure the organization you select in the
Report Suite Mapping tool is the same organization specified in the visitorAPI.js file on your site. You can use
the instructions in Test and Verify the Marketing Cloud ID Service to find the org ID that is being used by the Visitor
ID service.
If the Visitor ID service is not yet deployed on the sites that collect data for the report suite, if you deploy the Marketing
Cloud Visitor ID service in the future, you will need to ensure your deployment matches the organization you chose
in the Report Suite Mapping tool.
Why are some organizations grayed out?
Organizations and Account Settings
111
This indicates that you do not have sufficient privileges to map to the grayed out report suite. Consider the following
example:
In this diagram, the blue key indicates admin privileges. The gray lines indicate visibility.
This user has access to two Marketing Cloud organizations. He has performed the following:
• Linked his admin account in the chapek Analytics login company to his Chapek Corp Marketing Cloud org account.
• Linked his non-admin account in the doohan Analytics login company to his Chapek Corp Marketing Cloud org
account.
• Linked his non-admin account in the nigel Analytics login company to his Nigel Inc Marketing Cloud org account.
The following points list the mapping actions this user can and cannot perform regarding these report suites:
• Chapek-prod report suite can be mapped to Chapek Corp org since this user is an admin of a linked Analytics login
company (chapek) and his account is linked to this org.
• Nigel-prod report suite cannot be linked by this user since he is not an admin in any login company to which this
report suite is visible.
• Doohan-prod report suite can be mapped to Chapek Corp since this user is an admin of a login company (chapek)
that is linked to the Marketing Cloud org (note that he is not an admin of the doohan Analytics login company). It
is important to be aware that the doohan-prod report suite is also eligible to be mapped to the Nigel Inc Marketing
Cloud org, even though this user cannot perform that mapping. In this case, both Marketing Cloud orgs are displayed
in the list, but Nigel Inc is grayed out. Before mapping, this user should consult with an admin of the nigel login
company to determine which org is the best candidate for mapping. The UI displays a Possible Conflict warning if
you select an organization this is different than the organization under which the report suite was originally created.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why don’t I see all my report suites?
Some of your report suites might be visible under a different login company. You can change the current login
company using the drop-down at the top of the screen.
What if I don’t recognize some of the organizations listed in the drop-down for one of my report suites?
Organizations and Account Settings
112
The list shows you all the possible organizations your report suite could be mapped to, even you don’t have permission
to map to all of those report suites. If you are unsure if the report suite should be mapped to one of the grayed-out
report suites in the list, please consult with a Marketing Cloud administrator in your organization to determine the
best choice.
What if I don’t recognize some of the Login Companies listed for a report suite in the “Visible to Login
Companies” column?
At some point this report suite was shared with another login company which may be part of a different Marketing
Cloud organization.
What is this “Possible Conflict” error about the report suite being generated by another organization? Why
does that matter?
This is a notification to help you make an informed decision about your report suite mapping. We want to make you
aware that the report suite was originally created underneath a different organization in case that organization may
be more appropriate for this report suite.
How do I know if a report suite is aleady mapped?
Mapped report suites will be displayed in a non-editable format. If you need to change a mapping, please contact
Customer Care.
What if I only know the Org ID for my Marketing Cloud organization? How do I look up the name for my Org
ID?
You can find your organization name in Organizations and Account Settings.
I see a date in the “Date Mapped” column. Who did that mapping?
You can refer to the Report Suite Change Log in the Analytics interface to check the user ID that made the change.
Look for the event “Suite associated to IMS Organization”.
Troubleshooting Account Linking
Help on problems that arise from account linking.
Typically, account linking fails because the Adobe ID is linked to a previous user. When account linking fails, you
can:
• Contact Adobe Support.
• Access your solution using the standard login while the issue is being solved.

Audiences
In the Creative Cloud, an audience can be the
person viewing a video.
In the Marketing Cloud, audiences are collections
of people that we can target in our campaign
activities.
The membership in an audience can be
determined based on a set of rules, operating
on the visitor's Context, or based on a fixed list.
For example, a list of email subscribers or
members in a Facebook group.
In Marketing Cloud Audiences, creating and
managing audiences is similar to creating and
using segments, with the addition of the ability
to share them to the Marketing Cloud.
Adobe Target
In Target, audiences were formerly called
