Generate Environment Identifier

This step outlines the generation of an Edge environment identifier necessary for the AEP Edge extension implementation.

The Adobe Experience Platform Edge mobile extension is currently in BETA. Use of this extension is by invitation only. Please contact your Adobe Customer Success Manager to learn more.

Initialize Adobe Experience Platform for data collection

To start collecting data in Adobe Experience Platform, an XDM schema and a Dataset need to be created. Follow these steps to get started:

  1. In the browser, navigate to Adobe Experience Platform and login with your credentials.

  2. Create an XDM Schema as follows:

    • From the left panel, select Schemas

    • Click Create schema

    • Select XDM Experience event

    • Add the following existing mixins:

      • Environment Details

      • Commerce Details

    • Set a name for this schema and click Save.

Note: on the top left corner, observe that the selected AEP Sandbox is Prod.

Generate an Experience Edge environment identifier

The SDK requires a configuration identifier that ensures the implementation matches the server-side Edge configuration and data is routed/received to/from the correct destination.

To create a configuration identifier use the following steps:

  1. In Adobe Experience Platform Launch, navigate to your mobile property and select Edge Configurations from the left panel, then select New Edge Configuration.

  2. Provide a name and description and then proceed to set up the default environment settings. These settings are used as defaults across the Experience Edge environments.

  1. To send events to Adobe Experience Platform, enable the Adobe Experience Platform section as shown below:

    • Select Prod for AEP Sandbox.

    • Select the Streaming Inlet from the dropdown or create a new one. A streaming inlet is an HTTP source in the Adobe Experience Platform.

    • For the Event Dataset, select the XDM dataset you created in Initialize Adobe Experience Platform for data collection.

    • Click Save.
