Change to ECID cookie setting
An update to the privacy settings for Chrome version 80 impacted the ability of Adobe Analytics to track some users viewing Google AMP pages. Specifically, it prevents cross-domain tracking of users viewing Google-hosted AMP pages. This could result in inflated counts of unique visitors. This fix allows users to address this problem by changing the settings for their ECID cookies. Currently, Analytics sets ECID cookies with the setting SameSite = Lax which, prior to version 80 of Chrome, allowed cross-domain tracking. This is no longer the case. This change allows users to update the SameSite setting for ECID cookies to None . Note that this does allow the Analytics cookie to be shared in more situations, but Analytics cookies do not contain any sensitive information. In addition, when choosing this setting, cookies must be set to Secure so that data can only be passed via HTTPS connections. If you would like to make this change, please have a supported user open a ticket with Customer Care.
Migration from omniture.com to adobe.com domain
On August 13, 2020, Adobe Analytics migrated its frontend architecture from omniture.com|http://omniture.com/ to the adobe.com|http://adobe.com/ domain. This change should mitigate third-party cookie issues that arose after the initial May 28, 2020 unified product domain change. As a result of this update, the browser may prompt users to trust the new an .adobe.com|http://an.adobe.com/ or experience.adobe.com|http://experience.adobe.com/ domain.
Update on Ad Hoc Analysis Java 8 compatibility
Ad Hoc Analysis is not currently compatible with Java 8 versions 1.8.0_261+. To ensure that your access to this tool is not disrupted before the end-of-life date is reached, we recommend that you maintain a Java 8 version prior to 1.8.0_261.
EOL of Adobe Data Connectors
Adobe Data Connectors are powered by legacy technology that is no longer viable or supported. We have a new standard in the Adobe Exchange Partner Program that should be adopted for any integrations that wish to continue to be offered and supported. The official end-of-life date is still to be determined, but we anticipate it to be in the next 12-18 months (mid 2021 to end of 2021). Learn more...
Report suite mapping to IMS org
The report suite mapping tool will be discontinued in November 2020. This feature powers integrations such as Advertising Analytics and Experience Cloud segment publishing in Adobe Analytics. A report suite must be mapped to an IMS org to enable these and other services. Newer report suites are automatically mapped upon creation. However, older report suites must be manually mapped to an IMS org. See Map report suites to an organization in the Experience Cloud interface (Core Services) user guide to make sure all report suites belong to an IMS org.
Migration to unified product domain
Effective date: May 28, 2020
The migration to a unified product domain for Adobe Analytics, which began in January 2020, completed on May 28, 2020. While Adobe Analytics works to remove all omniture.com domain references from its architecture, it is important to allowlist omniture.com as a third-party cookie. When the full architecture migration is (soon) completed, we will notify you via the release notes and this allowlist step will no longer be needed. Here is a full list of recommended IP addresses and domains that you should allowlist.
If your organization blocks third-party cookies, please reach out to Customer Care to regain your access to Adobe Analytics.
New Adobe Analytics default landing page
Effective Date: June 18, 2020
On June 18, 2020, the default landing page for Adobe Analytics will change from Reports to Workspace. This change will occur for any users who have not previously set a custom landing page.
Third-party technology allowlist
March 12, 2020 (effective date)
Adobe Analytics has begun leveraging third-party technologies for feature rollout management and in-product support. The following URLs should be added to any necessary network firewall allowlists to ensure full feature access:
- Gainsight: https://esp.aptrinsic.com
- LaunchDarkly: https://app.launchdarkly.com
Improved redundancy for Analysis Workspace availability
In order to ensure availability of Analysis Workspace, we are adding a secondary CDN (Content Delivery Network) for improved redundancy. The following URLs should be added to any necessary network firewall allowlists:
Change to how Entries/Exits are calculated in Workspace
In Analysis Workspace, as of March 2020, we have changed how the None value interacts with Entries/Exits. Because you can now turn Nones on and off in Analysis Workspace, we apply the None value after the entry or exit, whereas (for eVars) it used to be applied before entry or exit. For example, assume that the first hit of a visit has no value for eVars, but the second hit does. In Reports & Analytics the first hit will show as Unspecified for the Entry, but in Analysis Workspace it will show up as the value on the second hit.
The View Archive setting under Manage Dashboards in Reports & Analytics will no longer be available as of October, 2020.
EOL of Analytics Legacy APIs
In November 2020, the following Analytics Legacy API services will reach their end-of-life and will be shutdown. Current integrations built using these services will stop working.
- 1.3 Analytics APIs
- 1.4 SOAP Analytics APIs
- Legacy OAuth Authentication (OAuth and JWT)
We have provided a Legacy API EOL FAQ to help answer your questions and provide guidance on how to proceed. API integrations that employ these services can migrate to the 1.4 Analytics REST APIs or the 2.0 Analytics APIs . Legacy OAuth accounts can migrate to an Adobe IO Analytics integration account, which can be used to access both the 1.4 Analytics APIs and 2.0 Analytics APIs.
San Jose FTP Broker Ending for London and Singapore
For customers in London and Singapore, we will no longer support brokering of data between London or Singapore and the San Jose data center ftp.omniture.com .
